Individuals who suffer from frequent diarrhea, nausea and vomiting, severe stomach pain, food poisoning etc. are mostly ordered to undergo a stool culture test. Sometimes, the test is also ordered to know if a particular treatment for an infection has come out with desired results. This test can also be useful in identifying individuals who can be probable carriers of the disease; however, show no symptoms.
The procedure involves collection of stool sample in a clean container that is kept in a laboratory condition for bacterial growth. The sample is then chemically tested; facilitating identification of pathogens and thus helps doctor to opt for best treatment options.
Before collecting stool sample, it is suggested that patients inform doctors about antibiotics or other drugs they may be using. If you have undergone a particular contrast imaging test, informing your doctor about the same is again vital.
If your doctor remains unaware of the above mentioned aspects, you may not receive accurate results.
In addition, if you are collecting your sample all by yourself, following the correct procedure is important. A stool sample mixed with urine cannot be used for a stool culture test. If your doctor uses a cotton swab to collect the sample, slightest of discomfort and pressure may be experienced.
