This simple at-home stomach ulcer testing kit has been developed to assess whether or not there is evidence of Helicobacter (H. pylori) bacteria in your body.

It checks a small sample of your faeces to find traces of the bacteria, and a positive result can be interpreted as a sign that a gastric (stomach) ulcer may be present. You can also get ulcers in part of the intestine just beyond the stomach, which are called duodenal ulcers.

Stomach ulcers and duodenal ulcers (sometimes called peptic ulcers) cause the same symptoms and the treatment for both is the same.

If you have been experiencing tummy pain and are struggling to find the cause, it can be a good idea to test for a stomach ulcer. A positive result may help you get the treatment you need.

Stomach ulcer pain is often described as being a gnawing or burning sensation, and it tends to be focused around the centre of the tummy.

Our home-use stomach ulcer test kit is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay designed to detect H. pylori antigens in the stool sample. The presence of H. pylori bacteria is an indication that you may have a stomach ulcer and is something to discuss with your GP.

Testing at home is swift, easy and affordable, and can help you to understand more about your health at your convenience

Gathering and testing your stool sample

First secure the collection paper provided to the toilet – you’ll see adhesive tabs on the paper to help you do this.

Defecate on the paper, being careful not to contaminate it with urine.

To take a sample of the stool using the blue applicator provided in the collection tube. Insert the applicator in at least three different places to ensure it is well coated. Note: you don’t need a large sample – just try and coat the tip as best you can.

  1. Screw the applicator back into the test tube. Make sure it’s a tight fit, then shake the tube to mix your stool sample with the liquid in the tube.
  2. Flush the stool down the toilet.
  3. Open the foil pouch and take out the test strip.
  4. Unscrew the lid on the other end of the test tube and break off the tip of the dropper.
  5. Now gently squeeze out 8-10 drops of the liquid onto the reaction tube.

Stomach ulcers are sometimes called gastric ulcers, and they commonly cause a burning or gnawing pain in the stomach.

They aren’t always painful, though, and other symptoms are possible, too. These include heartburn, acid reflux, nausea and indigestion.

Stomach ulcers are the result of damage to the layer protecting the stomach lining from the acids in the gut, and are usually caused by excessive use of anti-inflammatory medications or by an infection with H. pylori bacteria.

Our at-home stomach ulcer test kit checks for evidence of the H. pylori bacteria in a stool sample.

Treatment following a confirmed diagnosis by a GP is usually fairly straightforward and often involves a course of antibiotics. However, it is important to always discuss a positive result with your GP as he/she will want to investigate further. Complications can arise.

Doctors tend to observe an increase in stomach ulcers in people aged 60 and over, with men more commonly affected than women.
