NEVER Get a Colonoscopy Again?!
I don’t have to tell you how uncomfortable colonoscopies are.
They’re painful… invasive… and preparing for one can feel like a fulltime job.
But these may be the least of your worries when it comes to this “routine procedure”.
Because studies have shown that 1 in 200 colonoscopies results in serious injury… or even DEATH.
Fortunately, that’s all about to change…
Exciting new research has determined that pain-free, non-invasive at-home tests are just as reliable as conventional colonoscopies.
And you can get your hands on one today!
A new study, from Regenstrief Institute, has confirmed that inexpensive at-home stool tests – called fecal immunochemical tests (FITs) – are as effective at assessing cancer risk as a colonoscopy.
Where a colonoscopy looks for pre-cancerous abnormalities from the inside, FITs detect those problems via the symptoms.
You see, polyps and other signs of colorectal cancer cause trace amounts of blood in your stool.
And while you can’t see that blood with the naked eye, the FIT can detect it – and just as well as conventionalcolonoscopy.
To prove this, the Regenstrief Institute researchers analyzed over 31 prior studies involving 120,255 participants, all of whom took a FIT stool test and also had a colonoscopy.
When compared, the two screening methods had an equally high detection rate.
Unlike colonoscopies, FIT doesn’t put you at risk for a serious injury or deadly infection.
And the best part? The FITwill only cost you about $200, which is THOUSANDS less than your average colonoscopy cost.
So long as you aren’t a high-risk patient, an annual FIT might be the perfect colonoscopy alternative for you.
