MARKERS INCLUDED 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 the 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)

To test for SIBO, both hydrogen and methane gas production is measured after the consumption of a lactulose solution. Excessive gas production of either or both gases indicates the presence of SIBO.

FAQ:

  • Advantages of this test: This test uses a lactulose solution to detect SIBO. Lactulose is preferable to glucose because it can detect SIBO throughout the entire small intestine, whereas glucose only can detect SIBO in the very upper part of the small intestine. Glucose testing does not look for SIBO in the middle or lower small intestine – where the overgrowth is more likely to be.
  • Disadvantages of this test: If the test preparation instructions are not followed exactly (no fruits/vegetables/grains/sugar), the results can be greatly affected.
