What To Do If The Result is Positive
If the test is positive (any blue-green color appears in the test area of the pad) during a test, you likely have blood in the stool above the level for a normal healthy individual. Do not dismiss the findings even though there occasionally can be false positives with the test. Immediately contact your physician for follow-up and further screening (such as colonoscopy) and testing. Strongly consider seeking an appointment with a gastroenterologist, (a specialist in digestive health matters).
