The Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) test is an easy and non-invasive breath test that is used to diagnose SIBO. After a 24 hr preparatory diet, the patient consumes a solution of either lactulose or glucose and breathes into a tube every 15-20 minutes depending on substrate used. This captures breath gas, including any methane and/or hydrogen. If produced in the small intestine, gas changes over the testing period can determine if a patient has SIBO. The test results can also aid the practitioner in choosing the most appropriate treatment strategies.
In this webinar Sharon will discuss;
- Why test for SIBO
- Test interpretation using case studies
- SIBO and its associated conditions
- The different types of SIBO tests available
- How to choose which test substrate to use (glucose or lactulose)
