Description

Test Description:
Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) is just like the name suggests, SIBO is where bacteria enter your normally sterile small intestine and begin to colonize.

Studies have indicated that potentially up to 80% of patients with IBS may in fact have SIBO which a Hydrogen/Methane Breath Test can easily and non-invasively help determine by ordering here. Treatment of SIBO can be done with a short course of antibiotics provided by your medical professional. Common symptoms and reasons to test for SIBO include nausea, flatulence, diarrhea, constipation, malnutrition, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Irritable Bowel Disease (IBD), Leaky Gut Syndrome, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Acid Reflux, Rosacea, Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS), Fibromyalgia, Gastroeseophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), Celiac Disease & Diverticulitis.

Risk factors for the development of bacterial overgrowth include dysmotility, anatomical disturbances in the bowel, including fistulae, diverticula and blind loops created after surgery, and resection of the ileo-cecal valve, gastroenteritis induced alterations to the small intestine as well as the use of certain medications, including proton pump inhibitors. Small bowel bacterial overgrowth syndrome is treated with an elemental diet or else antibiotics, which may be given in a cyclic fashion to prevent tolerance to the antibiotics sometimes followed by prokinetic drugs to prevent recurrence if dysmotility is a suspected cause.

Aerodiagnostics offers breath-test kits that assist with detection of lactose / fructose / sucrose intolerance and small intestinal bacterial overgrowth. We measure hydrogen and methane levels in breath specimens to assist patients with digestive disorders. Aerodiagnostics utilizes state of the art diagnostic equipment that incorporates carbon dioxide measurements ensuring the highest quality.

Aerodiagnostics core focus is clinical laboratory accuracy and expedited results, and we have a unique approach for the patients we serve. We offer several convenient ways to submit specimens. Breath test kits can be ordered online and shipped directly to a consumer’s home or work. We chose the most flexible model for the consumers we serve because we understand the challenges associated with scheduling a three-hour breath test. Typical hydrogen only breath-tests offered by other facilities can only be performed during work hours and come with the corresponding hassles of travelling to major medical centers, parking, and spending the day in crowded uncomfortable waiting rooms.

Aerodiagnostics offers hydrogen and methane breath testing for patients and clinicians seeking highly accurate results, convenient specimen collection and a world class customer service approach not typically found in esoteric laboratory diagnostics. We strive for the highest level of diagnostic accuracy and unsurpassed customer service.
