The EZ DETECT Stool Blood Testing Kit is one of the most advanced home tests of its kind. This test can detect blood in the stool in very small quantities. Only 2.0 mg hemoglobin/100 mL water is required for a reading of blood in the stool.

This Stool Blood Test is able to detect blood that can be caused by a variety of problems including bleeding ulcers, hemorrhoids, polyps, colitis, diverticulitis, fissures or cancer of the colon.

This diagnostic screening test is easy to use and sanitary. Just drop a testing pad into the toilet after a bowel movement and receive results within 2 minutes. The pad will turn bluish-green if blood is detected. It's as simple as that. No lab processing is required, and nor do you need to eliminate anything from your diet prior to the test like rare meat or vitamin C.

Sensitivity

The sensitivity of the EZ DETECT' Test is approximately 2.0 mg hemoglobin/100 ml water.

The Fecal Occult Blood Testing Kit includes:

  • A foil pouch containing 5 test pads
  • One positive control package
  • One patient instruction sheet
  • One test result post card to record your results and mail them to your doctor

Medication and diet

Two days prior to and during the testing period, avoid aspirin-containing medicines, anti-inflammatory drugs, and rectal ointments. If you are taking medication, including prescribed doses of iron, check with your physician before testing.

No diet restrictions are required (rare meat and Vitamin C are okay). However, for two days before and during testing, try to eat vegetables, fruits and cereals.

Preparation for the test

Remove all toilet cleaners, disinfectants or deodorizers from the toilet bowl and tank. Flush the toilet bowl several times before testing. If you are color blind or visually impaired, have someone else read the results.

Precautions

  • Do not perform the test during menstrual bleeding, bleeding hemorrhoids, or constipation.
  • Store unused test tissues at room temperature and protect from sunlight and moisture.
  • Do not ingest or inhale. Keep out of reach of children.

Where to send the test results?

Send the completed Test Result Card to your physician if:

  1. You have a positive stool test result; or
  2. You received this test from a doctor

What does the test result mean?

Any trace of blue-green color visible in the test area indicates that blood may be present in your stool (a positive test result) meaning that there is a possible condition requiring your Physician's attention. However, a positive test result does not always mean that a problem exists as certain medicines can cause a false result as mentioned previously.

No trace of a blue-green color in the cross indicates that, at the time of your test, there was no detectable blood in the stool. However, some conditions may not cause bleeding all the time. If you have a negative test, but have one or more of the following symptoms, consult your physician:

  1. Diarrhea or constipation lasting longer than two weeks;
  2. Unexplained weight loss.
  3. Visible blood in the stool.
  4. Dark black stool.

NOTE: If you have any symptoms that concern you, consult your Physician - even if your test result is negative.

FAQ's:

  • What is colorectal cancer? What causes colorectal cancer?

Almost all cases of colorectal cancer, also referred to as colon cancer, begin with the development of benign colonic polyps. Polyps form when cells lining the colon grow, divide and reproduce in an unhealthy, disorderly way, producing a growth. These polyps can be cancerous, invading the colon wall and surrounding blood vessels, and spreading to other parts of the body. Colorectal cancer frequently begins without symptoms. The exact causes of colorectal cancer are unknown, but the disease appears to be caused by both inherited and lifestyle factors. Diets high in fat and low in fruits and vegetables – such as those that include red meat, fried foods and high-fat dairy products – may increase the risk of colorectal cancer. Lifestyle factors –such as cigarette smoking, a sedentary lifestyle, and obesity – also may increase the risk of developing the disease. Genetic factors may determine a person's susceptibility to the disease, whereas dietary and other lifestyle factors may determine which at-risk individuals actually go on to develop the disease.

  •  Who Is at risk of colorectal cancer?

Men and women aged 50 and older are at almost equal risk of developing colorectal cancer. Those who have a personal or family history of colorectal neoplasia (cancer or polyps) are at high risk of developing the disease. Anyone who has a personal history of inflammatory bowel disease, such as ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease, is also at high risk. Although the incidence of colorectal cancer appears to be the same among all racial groups, survival rates seem to be lower for African-Americans.

  • What are the common colon cancer symptoms?

According to the National Cancer Institute, common signs and symptoms of colon cancer include: *A change in bowl habits *Diarrhea, constipation or feeling that the bowel does not empty completely *Blood in the stool *Stools that are narrower than usual *General abdominal discomfort (frequent gas pains, bloating, fullness, and/or cramps) *Weight loss with no known reason *Constant tiredness *Vomiting.

  • What are steps for colon cancer prevention?

*Know your family history. *See your doctor for yearly screenings if you are aged 50 or older. *Maintain a diet low in animal fat and high in fruits, vegetables and fiber. *Exercise regularly. *Prevent obesity. *Avoid cigarette smoking. *Get screened regularly using screening methods such as fecal occult blood test, colonoscopy, flexible sigmoidoscopy and barium x-ray.
  • What if a fecal occult blood test is positive?

A positive fecal occult blood test result may be followed by: *Sigmoidoscopy: an examination of the rectum and lower colon with a lighted instrument to look for abnormalities, such as polyps; *Colonoscopy: a more thorough examination of the rectum and entire colon; *A double contrast barium enema: a series of x-rays of the colon and rectum. The majority (greater than 90%) of the polyps detected can be removed painlessly and safely during the Colonoscopy examination. Polyps so removed are later examined by a pathologist under the microscope. Individuals with pre-cancerous polyps have higher than average risk of colon cancer, and are advised to return for periodic surveillance colonoscopies. Colon cancers so detected are usually removed surgically, especially if the cancer has not already spread to other parts of the body. Pre-cancerous polyps that are too large or technically not possible to remove during colonoscopy are usually removed surgically. Several studies have shown that fecal occult blood testing can reduce death rates from colorectal cancer by 30-40%. If no colon abnormalities are found in an individual whose stool is positive for occult blood, considerations are then given to examining the stomach and the small intestines for sources of blood loss.
 
Additional Information:
The colon or large intestine is the last portion of gastro intestinal tract which ends in the rectum. Colon cancer is a frequent cause of death and is a frequent late-onset disorder that mostly occur at the age of 50 or above. As with other forms of cancer, Colon cancer is common in the people with the family history of colon cancer. Along with genetic susceptibility, various dietary and environmental factors play a major role in deregulating cellular proliferation and cigarette smoking and excessive alcohol intake are some of those factors that play a major role. Early screening may lead to prevention and medication of colon cancer. There are two major ways for screening of colon cancer: Fecal Occult Blood Testing and endoscopy. Fecal Occult Blood Testing is the first way to screen for colon cancer. It detects bleeding from polyps i.e. the cancer which is too small to be visible. It is also known as stool test cards or "Hem occult" cards. This test may lad to early detection and has reduced the death rate by around 33% in several test studies. It may sometimes gives false negative results as all the polyps are not recognized while screening. Endoscopy, the second method to screen for colon polyps and cancer, refers to the visual examination of the interior of a hollow body organ by useing an endoscope. Studies have shown that the method of colonoscopy is more accurate than annual FOBT or sigmoidoscopy for detecting polyps and cancer because it examines the entire colon. It is however preferred in higher risk cases.
