Douglas Hanly Moir provides comprehensive diagnostic and pathology services for referring physicians.

We do general check up and other test like pregnant test, genetic test .For general test , if it includes BSL ,CHOLESTROL, or for some special test ,like HOMOCYSTEINE , METANEPHRINES & NORMETANEPHRINES ,patients should be fasting 8-12 hours, no longer than 15 hours, no food ,no coffee, no tea, water only.
This test reports the likelihood of the presence of HELICOBACTOR PYLORI IN THE STOMOCH .It measures carbon dioxide in your expired air, produced as a by-product of the enzyme urease, which HELICOBACTER PYLORI PRODUCES. You will be asked swallow a capsule containing radio-labelled urea.
Urea is a harmless, naturally occurring substance and the amount of radioactivity involved is approximately the same as half a day’s normal exposure to environmental radioactivity, such as sunlight. Patients need fast for 6 hours or overnight. This means no food or fluids but you may lean your teeth. If possible, and with the agreement of your doctor, cease all antibiotics and bismuth-containing compounds 4 weeks prior to testing, cease proton pump inhibitors 1 week prior to testing, cease H2 receptor antagonists 6 hours prior to testing.
Please do not discontinue any medication without the knowledge and agreement of your doctor.
For 2 hours glucose tolerance test, patients need fasting. The 3-day diet is desirable. It is important that you eat generous amounts of carbohydrate on each of the three days before the test. The carbohydrate foods that are recommended are bread, cereal, potatoes, vegetables and fruit. Pregnant patients are not required to follow the 3-day diet. You will be required to remain in the collection entre for the duration of the test .You will be required to drink a sweet glucose drink and blood will be collected at appropriate intervals.
