What is SIBO?
SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth) refers to a condition in which colonic bacteria colonize and proliferate in the small intestine. SIBO is believed to be one of the underlying causes of IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) and can cause symptoms such as gas and bloating, diarrhea, abdominal pain and, in advanced cases, nutrient deficiencies and weight loss. Fortunately, SIBO is treatable through nutritional supplementation, diet, probiotics, and/or antibiotics. The presence of SIBO is detected by methane and hydrogen breath test.
SIBO BREATH TEST
Bacteria and archaea in the gut produce the gases hydrogen and methane as byproducts of carbohydrate metabolism, whereas humans do not. These gases are released into the bloodstream and diffuse into the lungs where they are exhaled. By measuring the amount of hydrogen and methane in the expired breath, a provider can detect the presence and location of SIBO within the gastrointestinal tract. The at-home hydrogen and methane breath test has the advantages of being accurate, non-invasive, and can be conveniently performed in the patient’s home.

The test was extremely straightforward with clear instructions and a video that made the directions much easier to understand. After working with my naturopath on holistic remedies, my symptoms are all gone. I would highly recommend the SIBO at home testing kit to anyone.
The results came back quickly and insurance covered almost all cost! I think the sensitivity on their testing may be better than others.
