Stool Culture Test Overview
Analysing a stool sample helps doctors diagnose issues in the gastrointestinal system, such as the stomach, intestines, or rectum. It specifically detects pathogens like bacteria, viruses, and parasites in your stool that could cause illness. This test is typically ordered if a doctor suspects a digestive tract infection, with symptoms including high fever, prolonged diarrhoea, bloody or mucus-filled stools, intense stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, and loss of appetite. A stool culture test may also be necessary if you have immune issues or elevated white blood cell counts, indicating your body's fight against infection. It's also warranted if you have recently used broad-spectrum antibiotics. Being an older adult can also increase the likelihood of needing this test due to susceptibility to dangerous bacteria strains like Clostridium difficile. Additionally, you may need this test after travelling to areas with unsafe water sources and experiencing parasitic infection symptoms.

If you have experienced signs or symptoms such as diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, and fever for a long time.
