Breath Testing

Breath testing is a noninvasive way to help doctors diagnose a number of conditions. By analyzing your breath, we can measure the amount of certain gases, allowing doctors to arrive at a diagnosis quickly and accurately.

Breath Testing Services We Perform includes

Lactose Intolerance Breath Test

This means the body is unable to digest lactose, a sugar found in milk and milk products. In order to diagnose lactose intolerance, we need to measure how your body absorbs lactose. During the procedure:

Fructose Intolerance Breath Test

This test determines whether you have difficulty absorbing fructose, a sugar found in onions, artichokes, pears and wheat. It is also used as a sweetener in some drinks. If you have symptoms such as bloating, gas, cramping and diarrhea, it may be due to fructose malabsorption.

This test is similar to the test for lactose

Bacterial Overgrowth Syndrome (SIBO)

Bacteria growing uncontrolled in the small intestine can cause small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO). You may experience excessive bloating, gas, cramping and diarrhea. To diagnose SIBO, we use a simple breath test.
