Ordering a Parasite Test Package

Do you suffer from intestinal complaints, bloating, flatulence or abdominal pain, nausea or fatigue and want to know if you are infected with parasites? We offer reliable DNA stool tests for parasites. The application process is simple. A stool sample is collected at home and sent to the laboratory in a secure package.
The laboratory offers the best quality at the lowest possible price. We are committed to handling your request  as fast as possible. After receiving the stool sample, the results will be send to you within 4 working days.

Parasitic stool testing (3 choices)
1. Dientamoeba fragilis
2. Blastocystis hominis
3. Giardia lamblia with Cryptosporidium spp (added free of charge to all Giardia lamblia tests).

You have the choice of testing for of one, two or all four parasites.

The most common intestinal single cell parasites:
Our  laboratory originally chose to only test for Dientamoeba fragilis and Blastocystis hominis for a variety of reasons:
1. Patients with chronic intestinal complaints often do not receive a stool exam for the parasites Dientamoeba fragilis and Blastocystis hominis from their doctor.
2. When people suffering from IBS are tested, the parasites are found much more often than normal.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome symptoms are often caused by D.fragilis and B.hominis.
3. These two parasites occur in a very high percentage of people with chronic intestinal problems: D. fragilis 30% and B. hominis 45%.

In recent years we have expanded our selection of stool exams to include G. lamblia and Cryptosporidium. The two parasites are important pathogenic protozoa: Giardia lamblia (tests positive with 5- 6% of IBS patients). And Cryptosporidium (positive in 1,4% of IBS cases).

Blastocystis hominis and Dientamoeba fragilis
Who should order a test?
A test has the most relevance for people with the following symptoms:
1. Abdominal distension, flatulence, abdominal cramps and an alternating stool structure.
2. Diarrhea, weight loss, anemia, fatigue.
3. Symptoms corresponding with the Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
4. Abdominal pain, especially in children.
5. A partner or family member of an infected person. Someone who has not been tested (even if they have no symptoms) may carry parasites and infect others.
6. A visit to a high risk country (Egypt, India etc)
7. Treatment is successful 75% of the time. After a treatment for parasites; 25% of the patients who are treated, will still test positive.

Giardia lamblia and Cryptosporidium spp.
When to order this test?
Giardia lamblia will cause diarrhea more often than an infection with D.fragilis or B.hominis, and sometimes can cause loss of weight, anemia, loss of hair and fatigue.
Giardia lamblia and Cryptosporidium spp. are parasites that infect the small intestine. Giardia is found in the stool of 5 to 6% of people with irritable bowel syndrome symptoms.
Cryptosporidium is responsible for 2-3% of the cases of acute diarrhea. Most of the time the symptoms of Cryptosporidium infection will spontaneously disappear. Only individuals with a weak immune system, especially HIV positive patients, may suffer from diarrhea for a longer period of time, For people with chronic bowl problems there is a 1% chance to test positive for Cryptosporidium spp.

Test method PCR technique
The most accurate way to identify parasites is a molecular technique in which the DNA of the parasite is identified and measured. The technique is know as real time PCR (polymerase chain reaction). The laboratory specializes in this technique for parasitic stool tests.

Thank you for visiting this website. We hope that we have provided you with sufficient information and have answered your questions regarding intestinal parasites. It is our goal to contribute to the diagnosis of intestinal problems, since one in five people suffer from chronic bowel complaints. Stool exams provide a major contribution in identifying the cause of the symptoms. For many people the diagnosis of Irritable Bowel Syndrome, IBS, and testing is of great value since more than 30% of IBS patients are infected with parasites.

Many doctors do not order parasitic tests, the reason is often the unfamiliarity with the subject. Many doctors assume that most people are infected in (sub) tropical regions, and are not aware that infection with parasites is no longer the specialized field of tropical medicine. Through tourism and immigration we all come into contact with intestinal parasites on a daily basis. Children are often contract a infection in kindergarten or school. The laboratory uses advanced DNA testing techniques and offers the test at the lowest possible price.
