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)
- Test Type: Breath (a total of 10 samples are collected every 20 minutes for 3 hours).
- Lab turnaround time: 7 – 10 business days from when the lab receives the test sample.
