AdvaCare is a CE, ISO and USFDA manufacturer of H. Pylori Test Kits.
H. Pylori test kits are used to detect the Helicobacter Pylori bacteria. This test is used to diagnose an infection due to the bacteria and to evaluate the effectiveness of treatment. H. pylori infection is associated with an increased risk of developing ulcers (peptic ulcer disease), chronic gastritis, and gastric (stomach) cancer. This bacterium can cause gastritis or stomach ulcers which cause inflammation or breaking of the lining of the intestines. Symptoms of these include abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, bloating, loss of appetite and heartburn. Helicobacter Pylori bacterium is also linked to 60% of people who have stomach cancer. The majority of people who are infected with H. Pylori have no related symptoms.
It can be tested with serum, whole blood and feces and is available in the form of a cassette and a strip. Both the cassette and strip test kits are very reliable and the results are produced within 10-15 minutes. Both the kits have a similar level of accuracy but; cassette test kit is robust and user-friendly than strip test kit.
Amoxicillin is an antibiotic used to treat a person who has been tested positive for H. Pylori. Some mutations of this bacterium are antimicrobial resistant; this means that usual antibiotics may not treat the disease and the patient would need higher doses or a change of medication.
