Did you know that H. pylori may cause changes in mucous membrane, gastritis, duodenal and gastric ulcer? Helicobacter pylori is microaerophilic bacterium that colonizes the gastric mucosa and produces urease, which protects it against stomach acidity, but also produces ammonia that is harmful for gastric tissues. According to studies, the antibodies specific to Helicobacter pylori infection are present in up to 80% of Estonians. Helicobacter can stay in the gut for years before developing clear symptoms indicative of a disease.  
Until the end of May, Sports Gene offers all those who order from us food intolerance test, H. pylori rapid test for free. Quick and efficient test gives results within five minutes by detecting the presence of antibodies specific to H. pylori (IgG).  Presence of antibodies means that you either have or have had helicobacter infection.
