How SIBO Testing Works

SIBO Doctor approved logo

  1. THE BREATH TEST IS A SIMPLE, NON-INVASIVE TEST.AFTER A 24 HOURS PREPARATORY DIET, THE LACTULOSE SOLUTION IS SWALLOWED.
  2. LACTULOSE IS NOT ABSORBED IN THE GUT AND SO ACTS AS A FOOD SOURCE FOR BACTERIA, IF PRESENT, IN THE SMALL INTESTINE.
  3. THE BACTERIA MAY FERMENT THE LACTULOSE AND PRODUCE HYDROGEN AND/OR METHANE. THESE GASSES MAY THEN BE DIFFUSED INTO THE BLOODSTREAM AND EXHALED VIA THE BREATH.
  4. BREATH SAMPLES ARE COLLECTED EVERY 20 MINUTES FOR 3 HOURS
