About stool test

Why is the stool test done?

A stool test is done to diagnose any medical conditions in a person through the examination of faeces’ colour, composition, and appearance. It is vital to keep a check on our overall gut health and also helps us to know whether the digestion process is getting affected due to any factor.

What does the stool test measure?

A stool test is used to diagnose faeces to check for any ailment. The results of this test can help one to decide the proper course of treatment if any infection, which is impacting the health of our gut and the process of digestion, is detected in the intestine.

In a stool test, a sample of the faeces is collected and sent to the laboratory for examination. It is then mixed with a solution which helps the present bacteria in growing substantially within 1-2 days, thus, confirming its presence. If this happens, the stool test report is positive.

Risk/side effects of the stool test

There are no risks or side effects associated with a stool test. However, to maintain proper hygiene, please wash your hands before and after collecting your stool sample, since it might contain harmful pathogens and viruses.

Your doctor will consider the following factors while analysing your stool test report:

  • Green coloured stool might indicate the intake of green vegetables or green food colouring. It can also indicate a bacterial or parasitic infection.
  • Black coloured stool might indicate bleeding in the upper stomach lining or the consumption of food rich in iron.
  • Violet or purple coloured stool might indicate some life-threatening disease, such as porphyria.

2.pH Levels
