Experts recommend regular intestinal check-ups for everyone over the age of 45. The reason for this is that non-visible blood in the stool may indicate intestinal diseases such as diverticulitis, colitis and intestinal polyps. Symptoms such as heavy diarrhoea or other intestinal problems might also be a reason for in between check-ups. Using the “Intestinal prevention” self-test from Veroval®, you can quickly and safely find out if there are traces of hidden blood in your stool, and whether or not you should consider taking further precautionary measures. All you need is a stool sample and five minutes of your time.
