SIBO (Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth) Breath Testing $250
SIBO is an overgrowth of bacteria in the small intestine. It can be good bacteria or bad bacteria that is imbalanced. It can be caused by multiple reasons including frequent antibiotics, abdominal surgeries, impaired stomach acid, impaired digestion, absorption or motility and multiple reasons.
It is tested primarily by breath testing. You ingest a glucose solution and collect breath samples at various intervals. These breath samples are collecting your exhaled methane and hydrogen levels. When these levels are elevated, it is reporting that the bacteria overgrowth in your small intestine is digesting the glucose solution and rapidly releasing gasses produced form that glucose solution.
This test indicates whether you have SIBO. Symptoms common with SIBO include gas, diarrhea, bloating, irritable bowel syndrome, abdominal pains, malabsorption of nutrients and other symptoms of malaise.
