When Should Patients Receive a Hydrogen Breath Test (HBT)?

Anyone with chronic gas, bloating, cramps, diarrhea and /or constipation should have an HBT. In addition, SIBO is so common in Hypothyroidism, Hashimotos disease, Anemia, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Brain Fog, Chronic pain, GERD, and patients taking proton pump inhibitors.

Many people with symptoms of diarrhea, constipation, stomach bloating, belching, gas, cramping may also suffer from lactose or fructose intolerance. Testing can also be done for lactose and fructose intolerance (each test is different) if SIBO is not found to explain symptoms. One of these tests can be done in any individual each day. So in 3 days SIBO, lactose and fructose intolerance can all be tested for.
