We’re excited to announce our partnership with Viva Health Laboratories to offer you the most advanced SIBO glucose breath test available. Utilising the cutting-edge QuinTron breath analyzer, we provide precise and reliable results for accurate diagnosis of Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO).

The Glucose Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) Breath Test is a diagnostic tool used to identify the presence of excessive bacteria in the small intestine. This non-invasive test involves ingesting a solution of glucose, a type of sugar, and measuring the levels of hydrogen and methane gases in the breath. Elevated gas levels may indicate the fermentation of the sugar by bacteria in the small intestine, pointing towards SIBO.

The price includes free delivery and return of the SIBO breath test kit.

Description

What is SIBO?

SIBO, or Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth, is a condition characterised by an abnormal increase in the population of bacteria in the small intestine.  This overgrowth of bacteria in the small intestine can lead to various digestive symptoms, including bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhoea, constipation, and excessive gas. SIBO can also interfere with the absorption of nutrients, potentially leading to deficiencies in vitamins and minerals.

Recent studies have revealed a startling statistic: up to 60% of individuals diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) may have underlying SIBO. This discovery underscores the critical importance of proper testing for SIBO in individuals experiencing symptoms of IBS.
