Buy SELFCheck Bowel Health Test Online in the UK
There are several reasons why both men and women may have blood traces in their faeces, including haemorrhoids, polyps, and, in rare cases, colon cancer.
If medical advice and intervention begin as soon as feasible, all of these problems can be treated more effectively and efficiently. Bowel cancer is still the third leading cause of cancer in both men and women, and this is unlikely to alter given the UK's ageing population.
Other medical issues, such as prostate disorders, are not easily shared and might be humiliating or awkward. As a result, a simple and sanitary home screening test that detects abnormal blood in faeces can give men and women with assistance and the incentive they need to seek medical care.
The advantage of performing a SELFCHECK Bowel Health home test in private ensures confidentiality while also providing the necessary incentive to take further steps in terms of personal health management and earlier consultation with a healthcare professional, which will facilitate earlier medical intervention should further action be required.
The SELFCHECK Bowel Health Test is simple to use and employs the faecal immunochemical principle (FIT), needing only a little sample of faeces and providing an easy-to-read visual result in less than 10 minutes. Because the test employs the FIT detection method, no diet or fasting is required prior to the test.
The cut-off for a positive SELFCHECK Bowel Health Test result is greater than 30g Hb/g faeces. This test is more sensitive than the majority of NHS FIT screening tests (80 to 150g/g). The higher the sensitivity of a test, the greater the possibility of a false positive result. A cut-off of 10g Hb/g faeces (or lower) is only used for patients with symptoms in a primary or secondary care environment, and should not be used for screening.
A sample of your stool (faeces) is taken with a stick and inserted into a tube that is pre-filled with a buffer solution. A drop of this mixture is then placed on the test cassette for evaluation.
This test can be performed quickly at any time of day during a bowel movement.
No dietary restrictions are necessary before performing the test.
For women: this test must not be performed during and within 3 days after your period.
Please read the enclosed instruction leaflet carefully before performing the test. Use test only once. Do not use test after the expiry date. Do not take apart the test cassette. Do not ingest the buffer solution. For external use only.
After use, the test components can be disposed of with normal household waste. There is no danger from any test component, provided you have used all the components according to the instruction leaflet.
Consult your GP if your reading is positive and before making any medical decisions.
Always consult your doctor if the test is positive, or if it is negative and you remain concerned about your health, or if symptoms persist.
