H Pylori Antigen Stool Test
Is it for you?
- You have gastrointestinal pain or symptoms of an ulcer
- You've tried over the counter remedies for indigestion but still have symptoms
- You have been treated for H.pylori and wish to confirm that treatment has been effective
- You know that having a peptic ulcer raises your risk of stomach cancer and you want to get a diagnosis so you can get treated.
This H. pylori stool test looks to identify whether H. pylori antigens, the substances that trigger your immune system to fight infection, are present in the gastrointestinal (GI) system which can indicate an active H pylori infection. If you are taking a proton-pump inhibitor (e.g. esomeprazole, omeprazole, lansoprazole) then you should stop taking it for two weeks prior to this test.
