A Brief Outline about the Bioscreen Stool Test in Victoria

by Kriben Govender Health Advisor

Due to impaired intestinal (gut) function, people may suffer from different digestive problems, including bad breath, abdominal bloating, diarrhea, and constipation. Some urine and stool analysis help in identification of an imbalance in gut flora that causes digestive problems.

What is a Bioscreen test?

The digestive system absorbs and metabolizes nutrients to keep people healthy. But, it requires some healthy (good) bacteria for assisting with digestive function.  A person will experience gastrointestinal and digestive issues if he has too much or too little bacteria in his gut.

Different diagnostic examinations that are carried out by certified professionals to measure anaerobes and aerobes (bacteria) in the gut of the patient using his urine or faecal matter are known as Bioscreen test. It is a non-invasive way for discovering digestive problems that lower quality of life.  The test is accredited by “The Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia” and “National Association of Testing Authorities” of Australia.

The test in Victoria, Australia looks for any imbalance in the gut’s natural flora that could cause different digestive issues.  People with conditions such as fatigue and gastrointestinal disorders often have abnormal bacteria level in their guts.
