Fecal muscle fiber muscle fiber is a project in fecal microscopy that can understand digestion and absorption functions and help diagnose digestive diseases. The meat that the muscle fiber eats daily is mainly the striated muscle of the animal, which disappears after being digested by protease. A small amount of muscle fibers can be seen after a large amount of meat, but should not exceed 10 in a cover sheet (18 mm × 18 mm), which is a light yellow strip, a sheet, and a fibrous transverse strip.

Basic Information

Specialist classification: Digestive examination classification: feces / parasitic examination

Applicable gender: whether men and women apply fasting: not fasting

Analysis results:

Below normal:

Normal value:

Above normal:

The negative is normal, and there is no muscle fiber or a large amount of muscle fiber after a large amount of meat.

Muscle fiber is positive, muscle fiber can be increased when diarrhea or protein indigestion, pancreatic exocrine function is reduced (trypsin deficiency) is the most common, severe muscle fibers in the longitudinal and vertical lines and nuclei can be seen, help to confirm Pancreatic dysfunction.

Tips: After the feces are discharged, they should be observed with the naked eye. If no muscle fibers are observed, they should be examined by microscopy. Normal value

A small amount of muscle fibers can be seen without muscle fibers or large amounts of meat.

Clinical significance

Animal striated muscle fibers in food disappear after protease digestion. However, muscle fibers can be increased in diarrhea or protein dyspepsia, and pancreatic exocrine function (trypsin deficiency) is most common. In severe cases, the longitudinal and longitudinal lines and nuclei in muscle fibers can be seen, which helps to confirm pancreatic dysfunction.

Need to check the crowd: severe diarrhea, signs of dyspepsia can be checked.

Positive results may be diseases: chronic diarrhea, anti-trypsin deficiency, pancreatitis, non-ulcer dyspepsia, functional dyspepsia precautions

Requirements for inspection:

1. The feces should be visually observed after discharge. If no muscle fibers are observed, a microscopic examination is performed.

2. After the specimen is collected, it should be checked within 1 hour. Otherwise, it may be destroyed due to the influence of PH gel digestive enzymes.

Preparation before inspection:

Avoid eating large amounts of food that is difficult to digest with high fiber.

Inspection process

1. Use a bamboo stick to pick up the feces, first check the naked eye to see if there is fiber. If not, take a fresh specimen. The container is clean and observed with a microscope. If muscle fibers are found, check whether the nucleus can be seen. Organelles, there is a diagnosis of pancreatic exocrine dysfunction.

2, within a cover sheet (18mm × 18mm) should not exceed 10, is a light yellow strip, sheet, with fiber horizontal stripes, plus the addition of Eosin can be dyed red.

Not suitable for the crowd

Not suitable for people:

This test is a routine check and there are no unsuitable people.

Adverse reactions and risks

This test is a non-invasive test and the test itself does not present complications and hazards.
