The SIBO Testing and Treatment Clinic measures hydrogen, methane and carbon dioxide using industry leading state-of-the-art solid-state sensors and patented breath collection kits.
Our kits allow easy breath sampling in the comfort of your own home, following a challenge diet and ingestion of the sugar lactulose.
Breath tests measure activity of bacteria in the small intestine which contribute to the wide range of digestive and systemic symptoms listed below.
The detection of hydrogen and methane in the breath after ingestion of a sugar substrate can help determine what issues in the digestive system may be related to Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)
