WHAT?

Check your gut health via a blood sample collected at participating Clicks Clinics. Results are available within 24 hours of the sample reaching the laboratory.

WHY?

A healthy gut is crucial for absorbing and digesting nutrients. Various factors can impact digestion. Conditions like gastritis, H. pylori infection, celiac disease, and inflammatory bowel disease can impair stomach and bowel function, reducing nutrient absorption and increasing the risk of stomach and bowel cancer.

WHO & WHEN?

An unhealthy gut, affects your well-being in many ways, and can result from lifestyle choices and other factors such as:

  • Limited food variety leading to poor gut flora
  • Food allergies, intolerances, or celiac disease
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • Antibiotic use
  • Lack of physical activity
  • Smoking
  • Poor sleep
  • High stress levels

If your lifestyle includes any of these or you experience symptoms like bloating, reflux, constipation, abdominal pain, or diarrhea, a gut health check is advisable. Doctors may recommend gut health tests for those with these symptoms.

HOW?

  1. Purchase this test (add to cart at the top of the page).  Note this is a virtual product and it is NOT shipped.
  2. Book your sample collection at select Clicks Clinics (you don’t pay for the sample collection service) – Make sure it is a morning appointment, because the sample must be taken first thing in the morning on an empty stomach.
  3. Bring the receipt for this test to your selected Clicks Clinic appointment.  A trained phlebotomist will collect your sample and send it directly to the BioSmart pathology laboratory for analysis.
  4. After that, you’ll receive the results via email.

The analysis will determine the levels of:

  • Pepsinogen I (PGI) & Pepsinogen II (PGII)
  • Calculated PGI/PGII Ratio
  • Vitamin B12
  • Iron
  • H. Pylori IgG

The results:

  • Provide insight into stomach and gut health
  • Assess the risk of gastritis and stomach ulcers
  • Identify current and/or past H. pylori infection, a common cause of stomach ulcers affecting half of the world’s population

A healthy gut boosts mental and physical energy, productivity, alertness, and more.

Your digestive health report will be easy to understand, with a detailed breakdown of results and guidance on your next steps.
