Breath Testing

A hydrogen breath test is a test that uses the measurement of hydrogen in the breath to diagnose several conditions that cause gastrointestinal symptoms.  These include: Lactose Intolerance, Sucrose Intolerance, Fructose Intolerance, Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO). Many gastrointestinal disorders exhibit similar symptoms and are difficult to distinguish such as gas, bloating, diarrhea and other symptoms. These substances  can also be triggers for patients with irritable bowel syndrome or IBS.   At Manhattan Gastroenterology, hydrogen breath tests are now available to help us distinguish some of these causes of common gastrointestinal symptoms.  These tests are useful to diagnose intolerance to lactose, fructose, sucrose and Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO).  SIBO is a condition affecting the small intestine and occurs when bacteria that normally grow in the colon start growing in the small intestine in large amounts.  By simply testing the breath of our patients after ingesting certain substances, we can help to diagnose these conditions which may be trigger for their symptoms.For more information about Manhattan Gastroenterology practice or to schedule an appointment, please contact our Union Square office at (212) 378-9983 or our Manhattan’s Upper East Side office at (212) 427-8761.
