It is a rapid and reliable test for the detection of Helicobacter pylori antibodies from fingertip blood.
If you experiencing gastrointestinal pain and symptoms of an ulcer, your doctor may order one of the H. pylori tests to determine if there is evidence of this disease. Some of these symptoms may include: indigestion, feeling of fullness or bloating, nausea, and belching and regurgitation.
These tests may also be ordered after you finish taking the prescribed antibiotics to prove that the H. pylori bacteria are gone from your body. A follow-up test is not performed on every patient.
A positive H. pylori test, antibody, antigen, or breath test signifies that you have been infected with this organism. In recent years, scientific data support that this bacteria causes stomach ulcers and appropriate treatment can destroy the bacteria and stop the disease.
