Lab Test Description
 

SIBO Breath Test | Lactulose | 3 Hours



Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO or BOSI) occurs when bacteria invade the normally bacterial-less small intestines. This promotes inflammation, absorption issues, bloating, gas, abdominal pain, diarrhea, and other serious digestive issues.

By testing both hydrogen and methane, this SIBO test can help indicate where in the small intestine the overgrowth is since levels of each vary by location.

Studies show that SIBO can also be attributed to:


  • Leaky Gut
  • Autoimmune conditions such as Hashimoto's, IBD, Scleroderma, and Celiac Disease
  • Osteoporosis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Anemia
  • Carbohydrate Intolerance
