FAQs

<em>Helicobacter pylori</em> (<em>H. pylori</em>) is a bacterium that lives on the lining of the stomach. Although we used to think that spicy food, acid, and stress were the major causes of ulcers, we now know that 9 out of 10 ulcers are caused by <em>H. pylori</em>. Medicines that reduce stomach acid may make you feel better, but your symptoms may come back. Here’s the good news – since most ulcers are caused by this bacterial infection, it can be cured with the right antibiotics.

There are 3 types of recommended tests:
<ol>
<li>Stool Test: Provide a small stool specimen (an easy-to-use collection system can be provided for this purpose). The doctor will conduct the test in his office or send it to a laboratory. HpSA is the #1 stool antigen test in the USA.</li>
<li>Breath Test: In this test, you have to fast then a breath sample is taken after you wait and drink a 13C-labeled urea mix. The breath sample collected is then analyzed in the office or sent out to a laboratory.</li>
<li>Endoscopy: This is a test in which a small tube with a camera inside is inserted through the mouth and into the stomach to look for ulcers. During the endoscopy, small samples of the stomach lining can be obtained and tested for <em>H. pylori</em>.</li>
</ol>

Test it. Treat it. Test it again – all with one easy stool test. HpSA test is an FDA cleared 3-in-1 test able to diagnose <em>H. pylori</em>, monitor if therapy is working and test for eradication.

No, only fresh or frozen stool samples. The product is not validated for the use of samples in Cary Blair. The 1:4 dilution of Cary Blair increases the Limit of Detection and could cause false-negative results.
