Can you please tell me, should a colonoscopy show everything a stool test would?

Can you please tell me, should a colonoscopy show everything a stool test would?

The two tests: Can be complimentary and there may be some overlap but each test has the potential to show something the other does not detect. It really depends on what you mean by "stool test", there are many kinds of stool tests.

Normal: The findings you mention are quite normal. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex.

Don't worry: Clostridium difficile is ubiquitous, many (maybe most) people have a few of these among the hundreds of different species in the gut, and trying to detect (let alone treat) these people serves no public good and generates only fear and superstition.

Can a stool test reveal what particular type of pseudamonas a child has if stool test shows positive for pseudamonas growth, but child is asymptomatic?

Yes: The lab can do some refined testing to determine the strain. Pseudomonas is an occasional finding in a normal kids stool. It is not particularly worrisome.

Sir I m hvng loose motion sice 2 months. Stool test shows puss cells (6-8). What diet shd I follow. It improves n then suddenly come back. Pse advice?

See a GI doctor: It is possible this is inflammatory bowel disease, but without your full medical record, detailed history and exam and possibly endoscopy it would be impossible to accurately diagnose. Go and see somebody and ask them lots of questions. Good luck.

My daughter is 3 months old. For the last 2 weeks she is having loose motion. Her stool test show 2-3 pus cells. Plz advise?

Need other info:: 1. What is she feeding? 2. what was her weight gain from birth to 2 weeks ago, and what was it in the last 2 weeks? 3. How many loose motions a day? Color? 4. Vomiting? Activity level? Fever? Any other concerns? Short version: a baby that continues to gain weight properly, and is acting well, while having loose motions, rarely has any real problem.

Let's say I have diaherra due to ibs. If I had stool test done would it show c diff present? Or only present when toxins are high

Let's say I have diaherra due to ibs. If I had stool test done would it show c diff present? Or only present when toxins are high

C diff should show: If c diff toxin a or b are present the test should show its presence. If you have diarrhea, probiotics including lactobacillus acidophilus might help keep c diff in check.

Can c diff show up in stool test & have no symptoms other than constipation. Doc not in at time. Not sure if treatment needed. Toxin b present.

Can c diff show up in stool test & have no symptoms other than constipation. Doc not in at time. Not sure if treatment needed. Toxin b present.

Yes-but no tx needed: The latest c diff test that uses "pcr" (polymerase chain reaction) technology is 98-99% accurate. The test result may be reliable, but, it's important that a skilled clinician examine and talk to the pt. Using their clinical judgement, if a pt has no diarrhea, high white blood cell count, and the test result is positive. You do not need therapy. Talk to the doctor re: specifics of your case.

Nope: The test will just indicate whether there is blood present in the stool. A positive test needs to be followed up with your doctor to perform additional tests to rule out cancer.

More testing: With diarrhea, blood in the stool and pus (inflammation), an infection is the most likely diagnosis. There are other infections that need to be excluded but a colonoscopy may need to be considered to exclude other things (inflammatory bowel disease, malignancy).

Hello Doc. My stool test sample shows that puss cells have been detected and the range is 8-10 /hpf and I am experiencing an upset in bowel movement! ?

You will need eval: "Puss" cells are white blood cells and may indicate the presence of inflammation and/or infection and additional history should be obtained by your physician and stool tests and possibility imaging tests such as colonoscopy may be necessary.

GE Reflux: I am glad to know above tests are Normal. Try omeprazole /Ranitidine like drug. Also monitor what kind of food (solid vs Liquid; Spicy vs Dairy Etc) causing Nausea/irritability. May check for celiac disease, H. pylori gastritis. May need EGD and Esophageal Motility study if symptoms continue.

How accurate is an o & p stool test?

How accurate is an o & p stool test?

Stool exam parasites: Stool samples for parasites are examined by a variety of techniques, but the sensitivity depends mostly on the level of infection (heavy vs. Light) and the particular parasite. Certain types are readily identified by most lab personnel-- the common ones. Less common organisms with light infestations may be difficult to find and identify. Best to use an experienced lab.
