Navigating IBD Management with the BÜHLMANN IBDoc Home Test

Living with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) presents a unique set of challenges. From monitoring symptoms to managing flare-ups, individuals with IBD require reliable tools to track their condition effectively. Fortunately, an innovative solution exists that allows patients to conveniently and efficiently test and monitor their IBD status at home with the IBDoc home fecal calprotectin test.

IBD encompasses chronic inflammatory conditions of the digestive tract, notably Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative Colitis. Symptoms such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, and fatigue can significantly impact daily life. Effective management of IBD involves regular monitoring to track disease activity and intervene promptly when necessary.

IBDoc is a pioneering home monitoring tool that empowers individuals with IBD to take control of their health. By measuring a specific biomarker of intestinal inflammation called Calprotectin, IBDoc enables users to measure their calprotectin levels conveniently from the comfort of home. By providing valuable insights into disease activity, IBDoc helps users and healthcare professionals make informed decisions about treatment and management strategies.

Using the IBDoc home test is simple yet highly effective. The device consists of a test cartridge and a smartphone application. IBDoc has been Health Canada approved for home testing application since 2017.  IBDoc delivers laboratory-grade results, ensuring reliable monitoring of disease activity.  Users collect a small stool sample, which is then analyzed by the test cartridge. The results are transmitted wirelessly to the smartphone app, where clinicians and users can view the calprotectin levels within minutes. This real-time data empowers individuals to track their disease activity over time and detect potential flare-ups early.

With IBDoc, monitoring calprotectin levels is no longer strictly confined to clinic visits. Users can perform this test at home, saving time and reducing the need for frequent appointments and possible time-off-work to be seen.

By gaining insights into their calprotectin levels, individuals with IBD can actively participate in their treatment plans and make informed decisions with their health care providers about their personal health.

Detecting changes in calprotectin levels early allows for timely intervention, potentially preventing disease progression and hopefully reduce the risk of complications.

The availability of IBDoc to the Canadian market marks a significant milestone in IBD management. This cutting-edge device is accessible to individuals across Canada, providing a valuable tool for monitoring and managing their condition.
