Colonoscopy? Lifeline Hygienics Can Help

May 24, 2012 12:26PM

According the American College of Gastroenterology 2006 annual report, more than 41 million Americans need colorectal cancer screenings (colonoscopies).  The pre-procedure preparation has been found difficult and at the very least, inconvenient for many people. It normally requires 24 hour fasting before the colonoscopy - which may not be suitable for some people, especially diabetics who are unable to tolerate a fast - then taking aqueous sodium phosphate, a drinkable solution taken the night before the procedure.

The good news was discovered in a single-blinded, 690 patient research study at Danbury Hospital using Colonic Irrigation as colonoscopy preparation as opposed to using the aqueous sodium phosphate drink. The findings were surprising. Those who had a colonic irrigation treatment the day of the colonoscopy procedure were rated for cleanliness and experience. The quality, comfort, convenience and overall tolerance ratings were significantly better with colon irrigation.
