How it works
The human digestive system can be described as the breakdown of the food you eat into smaller components such as carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, which are then assimilated into your bloodstream so that your body can use them for energy, growth, and repair. Maintaining a healthy and functioning digestive system is a must, as such at Lab Tests Direct offer a number of diverse tests to keep your digestive system in check and problem free.
A major problem which could pose a critical problem to your digestive system and health overall are parasites, organisms which live in another organism which is referred to as the host (you) and often harms it. When parasites are left untreated within the human body, they can grow and multiply at a rapid rate, leaving the host to experience unwanted symptoms. Lab Tests Direct provides a solution known as the Advanced Parasitology Screen which is a smart test that evaluates the stool for the presence of intestinal parasites identifying the DNA presence of the organism. The parasitology test can help reveal parasitic infections and will enable you to target treatment protocols geared towards infection resolutions.

You can also receive other tests to ensure your digestive health, such as the Helicobacter pylori infection screen which is a test to reveal whether or not your stomach is infected with Helicobacter Pylori which is a type of bacteria that infects the stomach, which about a third of Australian Adults are a carrier of the organism, although they may not realise they have it. Once the organism has been detected, it can be immediately treated, if left untreated it can cause severe damage to the stomach’s lining. Alternatively, you could also try our IBS status check that assesses the overall health of the gastrointestinal tract or the S.I.B.O- Breath Test which detects any bacterial overgrowth. All these options are available to you at the click of a single button.
