SIBO profiles are non-invasive breath tests which capture exhaled hydrogen (H2) and methane (CH4) gases following patient ingestions of a lactulose solution to evaluate bacterial overgrowth of the small intestine.

 

Symptoms of SIBO are non-specific, encompassing abdominal pain/distention, diarrhea, and flatulence. Conditions commonly associated with SIBO include IBS, IBD, Celiac Disease, Diabetes, Fibromyalgia, Rosacea, Parkinson's Disease, and Obesity.

 

Risk factors for development of SIBO include structural/anatomic issues, motility disorders, organ system dysfunction, elderly age and various medications (recurrent antibiotics, PPIs) that alter the gut microflora populations. In general, clinical management of the SIBO patient involves antimicrobial therapy, prokinetic agents, nutrient supplementation, dietary interventions, and treatment of comorbid conditions. ~GDX.com

**Once the test is purchased, please call our office at 308-386-4799. You will need to set up an new patinet appointment  and a follow up visit to go over results after the test is completed. Insurance does not pay for the functional test, but the medical portion of your visit is often covered by insurance. We do recommend setting up an extended visit to go over results, as there is a lot of information, this additonal time will be out of pocket.
