About the test

Suffering from stomach pain and discomfort? This group of tests has been specifically developed to help people suffering with symptoms such as frequent diarrhoea, constipation, abdominal discomfort and bloating.

This panel has been developed by our Clinical Governance Director, Dr. Adam Staten and covers the following:

Full Blood Count

The full blood count tells us a great deal of information. It will help us to exclude anaemia, will give an indication of your iron, vitamin B12 and folate levels, and will also tell us a lot about the health of your immune system.

Abnormalities in the full blood count can tell us about abdominal diseases such as coeliac disease or pernicious anaemia that prevent you absorbing nutrients, and will also indicate if you may be losing blood into your gut from conditions such as gastritis, gastric ulcers, or sinister conditions such as bowel cancer.

Kidney function

Your kidneys perform many functions including removing waste products from the blood, regulating levels of electrolytes in the blood, and regulating blood pressure. Kidney function tests are amongst the most commonly performed tests by doctors because, not only do they indicate your state of health, but the health of your kidneys will guide decisions on which medications may or may not be right for you.

Kidney disease can cause abdominal symptoms such as loss of appetite of nausea.

Liver function

The liver is a highly active and complex organ. It is involved in digestion, processing waste products, processing medication, the immune response and is also part of the hormonal system. The liver can be damaged by an unhealthy lifestyle, alcohol, toxins and a variety of different illnesses.

We assess the health of the liver by measuring a range of different enzymes that it produces. The level of these enzymes indicates the health of the liver, and can be interpreted to give a clue as to what might be the underlying problem. Liver function tests can also help us work out if there is a problem with your gallbladder.

Liver and gallbladder problems can cause abdominal pain (particularly on the right hand side), abdominal swelling, nausea and vomiting, itching, dark urine and pale stools.

C-Reactive protein

CRP is a marker of inflammation that will rise from any cause of inflammation in the body. When assessing abdominal symptoms, we use CRP to exclude infection and also to exclude a group of diseases known as Inflammatory Bowel Disease which can cause abdominal pain, blood in your motions, and diarrhoea.

These conditions are ‘autoimmune’ diseases that occur when the immune system mistakenly attacks part of the body.

    Our usual turnaround time is 24-48 hours, or less, from the time your sample is in our lab. We do not wait for all the results to complete before sending them to you, so you may start receiving results the same day for most cases, or as results become available.

    We are extremely proud of our very short turnaround times and a very efficient laboratory processes. Whilst we accommodate the shortest of time scales, with some results available within hours, you should allow up to 48 hours for you results to come back for routine testing and potentially longer for specialised investigations.

Doctor's notes

Hi, I am Dr. Adam Staten and here's my view on this test as a GP and Clinical Director at One Day Tests.

This Abdominal Symptoms test is useful for people suffering with symptoms such as frequent diarrhoea, constipation, abdominal discomfort and bloating. 

It is designed to explore those symptoms that are usually put under the umbrella of ‘irritable bowel syndrome’ (IBS). These are very common symptoms of diarrhoea, constipation, bloating and crampy abdominal pains. 

Because there is no specific test for IBS, we have to exclude other potential causes of those symptoms including Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn’s Disease, liver and kidney disease. 

Red flag symptoms for the Abdominal Pain Blood Test

Even if your blood tests are normal, you should see a doctor if you have any of the symptoms below because they may be a sign of serious underlying illness. 

  • Bleeding when you open your bowels. 
  • Unexplained weight loss. 
  • Progressively worsening abdominal pain. 
  • Yellowing of the skin or eyes. 

Your Results and Health Dashboard

The results of your Abdominal Pain Blood Test will be emailed to you as a secured PDF file, ready for your GP and will also be uploaded to our Health Dashboard area of the website. It’s a unique and powerful tool, powered by our in-house clinical analysis research, to match your biomarkers across test panels and symptoms, as well as provide clinical commentary on all individual biomarkers you tested for.

The health dashboard will also provide "panel level" commentary - a birds eye view of the biomarkers that were tested. This feature allows you to view your test results and clinical commentary, and compare them to previous results, giving you a clear understanding of how your health is progressing.

By using the Health Dashboard, you can identify changes in your biomarkers and make necessary adjustments to your lifestyle. This added value is immense, as it empowers you to monitor your health and make informed decisions about your well-being.

It's free and is available with all of our tests.

Save on continuous monitoring with our subscription plan

The best way to look after your health is to do so regularly. This is easy to do with our continual monitoring plans which give you a discount on future blood tests. You choose the frequency and we'll do the rest.

When you purchase a subscription, we will deliver your home test kits or allow you to book appointments in line with your chosen frequency. You will be able to track your biomarkers over time in our powerful Health Dashboard, where results will be automatically updated for you. There is a minimum of 3 tests with any subscription, after which you can pause/restart/cancel at any time.

Special instructions

Hi, I am Stefania Brown, I am the Laboratory Manager at One Day Tests and here are the lab's special requests for the Abdominal Pain Blood Test.

Take this test after any symptoms of a short term illness have settled. If you take biotin supplements, stop taking these for 72 hours before the test.

You need to be eating a diet containing gluten for 6 weeks prior to this test.

There is a larger failure rate for some biomarkers in capillary testing (hemolysis etc). For Platelets (PLT) measurement we recommend a walk-in venous sample.

Venepuncture appointment - how to prepare

If you are coming into one of our clinics for the test, this is what you need to do before you arrive:

  • Drink plenty of water about an hour before the appointment.
  • Avoid coffee/tea/energy drinks. Water is good!
  • That’s it! We’ll do the rest.

Home test kit for Abdominal Pain Blood Test - how it works

Our blood test kits are simple and convenient.

The most important step in doing a blood test at home is to read the instructions very carefully. The process is very simple, but there are a few pitfalls you need to be aware of - you will save yourself a lot of time if you do it right the first time around!

  • Full printed instructions will arrive with your kit - please read them carefully.
  • Drink plenty before taking the sample and warm your hands up in the sink with warm water for a few minutes. This will make your blood flow much better.
  • Fill the tubes to the top line. We don’t need much blood; filling tubes to the top line is about 15 drops of blood.
  • Post the samples on the same day you take them, before midday, Monday to Thursday. If you post it any other time it might get to us late or be stuck at a sorting office over the weekend. You will then have to do it again.
  • Package the sample in the same box the kit came in. Otherwise, Royal Mail or DPD will reject it. The sample tubes go into a pouch, then into a cardboard box, and then into a return envelope. All of this is provided in the kit: please use it.

We look forward to receiving your sample in our lab!

Frequently Asked Questions

Hi, I am Lana Nela, Lead Nurse, and here is what we are frequently asked about this test.

Why do I have to be on a gluten containing diet for this test?

One of tests we carry out is a screen for coeliac disease which is a gluten intolerance. The test looks for your body’s reaction against gluten so it only works if you have gluten in your diet at the time of the test and for about 6 weeks before. If you are on a gluten free diet, the other tests will all be accurate but you could get a false negative for the coeliac screen.

How much gluten do I need to eat for this test?

You need to have the gluten equivalent to two slices of wheat-based bread per day.

What kind of liver diseases will this test detect?

This test will determine if there is an issue with the liver or the gallbladder but won’t tell us exactly what is causing the issue. This normally needs some further tests. 

Why take this test?

Hi, I am Dr. Marco Esposito and here is why it's important to take this test.
  • You have persistent and troubling abdominal symptoms
  • You are worried about a family history of inflammatory bowel disease
  • You want to check on the health of your liver and kidneys 

Is this test right for you?

Hi, I am Jehad Al-Nashash, I am the Laboratory Director. Here are the symptoms that you may wish to address with this test.

This test is useful for those who suffer with frequent and unexplained abdominal symptoms that are often called 'irritable bowel syndrome' or IBS.

It is also useful for people who are worried about conditions such as Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn's Disease or Coeliac Disease, perhaps because of a family history of these conditions.
