Fecal Tests

At Hermon Healthcare Center, we provide a range of fecal tests that play a crucial role in diagnosing and managing various gastrointestinal and digestive health conditions. Our fecal testing services are designed to offer accurate and timely insights into your health. Here are some of the fecal tests we offer:

1. Fecal Occult Blood Test (FOBT): This test detects hidden (occult) blood in the stool, which may indicate gastrointestinal bleeding. FOBT is commonly used for colorectal cancer screening and detecting other gastrointestinal issues.

2. Fecal Immunochemical Test (FIT): Similar to FOBT, FIT specifically detects human blood in the stool, aiding in colorectal cancer screening and identifying lower digestive tract bleeding.

3. Stool Culture: Our stool culture tests identify and determine the type of bacteria or microorganisms causing gastrointestinal infections, such as bacterial or parasitic infections.

4. Stool Ova and Parasite (O&P) Test: This test examines the stool for the presence of parasites or their eggs, helping diagnose parasitic infections such as giardiasis or amoebiasis.

5. Stool Lactoferrin Test: Measuring lactoferrin levels in the stool helps diagnose inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) like Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis.

6. Stool Calprotectin Test: Evaluating calprotectin levels in the stool aids in differentiating between IBD and other gastrointestinal conditions.

7. Stool pH Test: This test measures the acidity or alkalinity of the stool, offering insights into metabolic disorders and gastrointestinal health.

8. Stool Fat Test: Assessing fat levels in the stool helps diagnose malabsorption conditions such as celiac disease or pancreatic insufficiency.

Our fecal testing services are an integral part of our commitment to holistic healthcare, enabling us to provide accurate diagnoses and personalized treatment plans. Our experienced healthcare professionals ensure that you receive high-quality care and support for your gastrointestinal health needs. Your well-being is our priority at Hermon Healthcare Center.
