Pre-Test Requirements

4 WEEKS PRIOR TO TESTING

Patients cannot have had Colonoscopy, Enema, Colonic Irrigation Therapy, or Bowel Prep in the 4 weeks leading up to the testing.

Note: Gastroscopy and procedures that only require fasting are allowed in this time.


2 WEEKS PRIOR TO TESTING

Patients must avoid Antibiotics and highly concentrated Probiotics in the 2 weeks leading up to the testing, and must refrain from taking for the duration of the testing.

Note: Probiotic yoghurts and fermented milk drinks are allowed in this time.


1 WEEK PRIOR TO TESTING

Patients must avoid Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs) for 1 week leading up to testing. Examples include Nexium, Pariet and Losec.

Note: Over the counter antacids (such as Mylanta and Gaviscon are allowed during this time).


2 DAYS PRIOR TO TESTING

To provide the most accurate, usable result for their test, patients must follow a our LOW FODMAP diet for the two days prior to each test. The diet contains no fermentable sugars. This reduces the possibility of a 'false positive' in your results. The pre-test diet will be supplied to you when booking in for a test, or ordering a test kit.
