The Gastrointestinal Pathogen Screen w/H. Pylori (#401-H) profile is an in-depth assessment for intestinal infections including parasites, worms, bacteria, candida, and helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) This test is useful for anyone looking to assess for acute or chronic intestinal infections. This profile is particularly effective for detecting a wide variety of common parasitic infections such as Giardia lamblia, Cryptosporidium parvum, Entamoeba histolytica, and Blastocystis hominis, as well as H. pylori (which is a risk factor for stomach cancer, gastritis, ulcers and esophageal reflux). Doctors often use this test to identify gastrointestinal infections for people with digestive system complaints, i.e. constipation, loose stools/diarrhea, pain, bloating, gas. It is also used as a quick assessment for H. pylori for individuals with reflux problems and food sensitivity problems.
