SIBO Test

Description

The SIBO Test evaluates whether there is bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine.

This test is a lactulose based test. A lactulose tests is preferable to a glucose test because it can detect SIBO throughout the entire small intestine, whereas glucose only detects SIBO in the very upper part of the small intestine.

Markers On This Test:

  • Hydrogen: Gas levels are measured in ppm at baseline and at 20, 40, 60, 80, 100, 120, 140, 160, and 180 minutes after the consumption of a lactulose solution.
  • Methane (Gas levels are measured in ppm at baseline and at 20, 40, 60, 80, 100, 120, 140, 160, and 180 minutes after the consumption of the lactulose solution)
