Who should take the test?

A high-fat diet as well as a low-fat diet increase the risk of getting colorectal cancer as it requires a higher redicence time of the stool in the intestine til constipation. As a result, harmful substances accumulate in the intestine and promote the development of cancer. Similarly, a genetic predisposition can increase the risk of getting colorectal cancer.

Bleeding polyps and carcinomas cause Hemoglobin to enter the stool. Usually Hemoglobin is bound to the serum protein Haptoglobin. Recent findings show that Hemoglobin is degraded slowlier during intestinal bleeding if it is bound to Haptoglobin – a higher concentration of the Hemoglobin-haptoglobin complex can then be detected in the stool. In this way, the test detects a higher number of advanced polyps (benign precursors) than the pure Hemoglobin test. Since colon cancer usually develops from polyps and these grow over many years, the test provides early detection. If blood is detected in the stool during the examination, colonoscopy can be used to remove the polyp in most cases, resulting in healing.

The test analyzes the values of the following analytes:

  • Hemoglobin-haptoglobin complex

Our Hemoglobin-haptoglobin Check stool test measures the Hemoglobin-haptoglobin complex concentration in your stool and thus helps you to detect the development of colon cancer at an early stage.

How does it work?

You collect the samples at home, send them back to us and we will provide you with your level of each analyte and whether your level falls within the reference ranges for your age. In addition to that, the results include graphs showing whether your levels are in the “green” (=normal/healthy) or “red” (=too high/low) area, making it easy to understand the results.

What will my results tell me?

Your results will provide detailed information about whether your Hemoglobin-haptoglobin complex levels are normal, low, or high compared to reference ranges in your age group. You can then discuss the results with your doctor or health practitioner, who can give you further guidance and treatment recommendations.

What guidance will I get along with my results?

We always recommend the discussion of the mailed results with your doctor or practitioner. Besides, further information is available on our website, especially in the different test categories, under “health conditions” and the FAQs. Still have questions? Then you can contact us by mail at contact@verisana.co.uk.

Test measures
For the Hemoglobin-haptoglobin Check we analyse:
  • Hemoglobin-haptoglobin complex
Hemoglobin-haptoglobin complex

An increased value can be an indication of sources of bleeding in the lower gastrointestinal tract and should be clarified by endoscopy if necessary.

Symptoms the Hemoglobin-haptoglobin Check is suitable for:
  • Blood in the stool
  • Vomiting blood
  • Stomach pain
  • Painful bowel movements
  • Fatigue
  • Fever
  • Weight loss
  • Night sweat

    This test is good – especially for early detection of colorectal cancer. However, if you’re more interested in getting a comprehensive picutre of your gut health, I recommend to do the Comprehensive Gut Biome & Health Check which measures more paramet…

Any Questions?

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions regarding this test. Your question is missing? Please contact us at:

What does the Hemoglobin-haptoglobin Check measure?

The Hemoglobin-haptoglobin Check measures the concentration of the Hemoglobin-haptoglobin complex in your stool, aiding in the early detection of colon cancer.

How does the test help in early detection of colon cancer?

By detecting the presence of the Hemoglobin-haptoglobin complex in the stool, the test can identify potential bleeding polyps and carcinomas in the colon, allowing for early intervention and treatment.

What factors contribute to an increased risk of colorectal cancer?

Both a high-fat and low-fat diet can increase the risk of colorectal cancer due to alterations in stool transit time, leading to the accumulation of harmful substances in the intestine. Additionally, genetic predisposition can elevate the risk.

How does the Hemoglobin-haptoglobin complex relate to intestinal bleeding?

Intestinal bleeding caused by polyps and carcinomas can result in the presence of Hemoglobin in the stool. When Hemoglobin is bound to the serum protein Haptoglobin, it degrades slower, leading to a higher concentration of the Hemoglobin-haptoglobin complex in the stool.

Why is the detection of the Hemoglobin-haptoglobin complex significant?

Detection of the complex allows for the identification of advanced polyps, which are benign precursors to colon cancer. Early detection and removal of these polyps through colonoscopy can lead to healing and prevention of cancer development.
