Digestive health blood tests

Many of us find it embarrassing to talk about, but having some kind of gastrointestinal problem in the UK is quite common.

At Blue Horizon Medicals we make it easy for you to investigate possible causes of poor digestive health with a small selection of stool testing kits. They are easy to collect as we provide you with an easy collect stool catcher which tapes into your toilet bowl and flushes away after you have harvested some stool to send to the laboratory. Full instructions and a safe return envelope kit to the laboratory is also included for you.

A faecal occult blood test (FOB) checks for hidden (occult) blood in the stool (faeces). It is usually offered free of charge by the NHS for those over 40 years of age.
