SIBO Breath test (small Intestinal bacterial overgrowth)
The SIBO breath test is an in-home 2-3hr breath test in order to measure hydrogen and methane gas levels. Physicians take a breath sample after every 20-30 minutes. The test accurately diagnoses bacterial overgrowth of the small intestine through measuring the gas levels that these bacteria produce. It is a condition that cannot be diagnosed with a stool test and is estimated to affect 25-40% of the population.
The SIBO test is an excellent test to perform alongside the GI Mapping or CDSA stool test in order to get a comprehensive assessment of the full gastrointestinal tract.
It is the single largest cause of IBS type symptoms. Digestive symptoms such as Diarrhoea, Constipation, bloating, excess gas, food sensitivities, Irritable bowel disease and cramping come in this category.
