Why Use the Hydrogen Breath Test to Assess for Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth?

Medical professionals agree that the glucose hydrogen breath test is the best option available to test for SIBO.  Glucose is more sensitive than lactulose to a wide range of bacteria, can be ordered online without a physician and unlike lactulose is not a prescription laxative.   The lactulose test is available by obtaining a healthcare professionals order and contacting us.  Gut-Chek gives you easy, at home access to this leading technology.

  • Fast Results: All tests are analyzed immediately upon arrival in our lab and the results sent by email to you within 24 hours of test receipt.

Why is Testing for SIBO Important?

The incidence of bacterial overgrowth increases with age. Atrophic gastritis (chronic inflammation of the stomach), estimated to occur in 20 to 30% of healthy seniors, is the most common cause of reduced gastric acid secretion. This is a predisposing factor for bacterial overgrowth.

Recent research by Dr. Mark Pimentel has suggested a link between irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and bacterial overgrowth. In one study 78% of the 157 patients diagnosed with IBS also tested positive for SIBO using the hydrogen breath test. This is an important finding for people that suffer from IBS because SIBO can be successfully treated.

Patients with the following clinical conditions are at potential risk of SIBO:

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Diabetes
  • Rosacea
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Cirrhosis
  • Immunodeficiency syndromes
  • Chronic pancreatitis
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease
  • Celiac Disease
  • Long-term treatment with anti-secretory (e.g. PPI’s) medications
