Understanding Stool Reducing Substance in New Delhi

What is Stool Reducing Substance in New Delhi?

Stool Reducing Substance is a test used to detect the unabsorbed sugar in the stool. Sugars like fructose, glucose, lactose, and galactose can be identified in the stool sample with this test.

This test is usually done to check for lactose intolerance. Lactose intolerance may occur after a prolonged episode of viral gastroenteritis, due to inadequate absorption of the sugar lactose by a damaged intestinal lining.

This test is useful in distinguishing between diarrhea caused by viral infection or diarrhea caused by abnormal excretion of various sugars. A positive test result means there are reducing sugars in the stool that have not been absorbed by the body. A high level of reducing substance in the stool suggests the presence of conditions such as lactase deficiency, short bowel syndrome, and carbohydrate malabsorption.
