GetTested’s Peptic ulcer test tests for antigen against Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) in the stool. H. pylori is a bacterium that can be found in the lining of the stomach. An infection with H. pylori can lead to gastritis  of varying severity. However, most people with an H. pylori infection do not experience any symptoms at all. About 5% of those infected develop peptic ulcers, which is the only condition that requires medical treatment of the infection.

Alongside testing for H. pylori, if you’re experiencing stomach discomfort, our SIBO Test might also be beneficial to consider, as symptoms like abdominal pain can also stem from conditions such as SIBO.

    A series of persistent stomach aches, bouts of acidity, and general discomfort made me question if something was amiss with my digestive health. I remembered reading about Helicobacter pylori and its potential link to peptic ulcers. Instead of plunging into anxiety, I decided to be proactive and opt for the Peptic Ulcer (H. pylori) Test. The entire experience, from ordering to administering the test, was smooth and hassle-free. The results were both enlightening and alarming. They indicated a presence of H. pylori bacteria in my system. With this clear diagnosis, I could approach my healthcare provider confidently, armed with precise information. Subsequent treatments were effective, targeting the root cause. Today, my stomach issues have substantially reduced. I'm grateful for this test, which not only provided clarity but also guided my path to recovery.

    Over the past few months, a constant gnawing pain in my stomach became the unwanted background music to my daily life. Recurring acidity episodes only added to the discomfort. Seeking answers, I stumbled upon the Peptic Ulcer (H. pylori) Test. The kit arrived promptly, with instructions that were easy to follow. The results confirmed my suspicions: an H. pylori infection. Knowing was indeed half the battle. My doctor appreciated the detailed report and was able to chart out a targeted treatment plan. The relief, both physical and mental, was profound. For those in the dark about stomach discomfort, this test could be the beacon you're searching for. :)
