One of the diagnostic solutions offered is Breath Testing for SIBO & IMO. Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) and intestinal methanogen overgrowth can be diagnosed with the help of this breath test (IMO). The digestive tract may produce excessive hydrogen and/or methane gas when bacteria typically found in the large intestine are present in the small intestine. This can result in a variety of gastrointestinal symptoms, including bloating, diarrhea, and/or constipation. Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) has historically been used to identify this illness, and it has been divided into two categories: hydrogen-related SIBO and methane-related SIBO. Since methane in the gastrointestinal system is created by archaea, which are not bacteria, revised rules defining the differences between each categorization have led to the reclassification of methane-related SIBO as Intestinal Methanogen Overgrowth (IMO). The Hydrogen and Methane Breath Test for SIBO & IMO can be ordered with either a lactulose or glucose substrate. Pediatric kits are also available.

Breath Testing for Lactose Malabsorption a disease known as lactose malabsorption may happen when the enzyme required to break down lactose, a sugar frequently found in dairy products, is absent. Because the enzyme is absent, bacteria that are normally prevalent in your digestive tract can produce hydrogen and/or methane gas, which can lead to various gastrointestinal symptoms such as bloating, diarrhea, and/or flatulence. A disease known as lactose malabsorption may happen when the enzyme required to break down lactose, a sugar frequently found in dairy products, is absent. Because the enzyme is absent, bacteria that are normally prevalent in your digestive tract can produce hydrogen and/or methane gas, which can lead to various gastrointestinal symptoms such as bloating, diarrhea, and/or flatulence. Breath testing has become the recommended diagnosis plan for SIBO, IMO, and carbohydrate malabsorption disorders. CDI’s wide range of hydrogen and methane breath tests can be taken in the comfort of the patient’s home and are much less invasive than other diagnostic strategies including small bowel aspiration. 

“It is so important to drive awareness and education around GI disturbance, and it is always a push and pulls. The industry will always do what it can to drive awareness and education at the provider and the patient level. But we need patients educated, and we need both educating each other for this to work.” says Craig strasnick, President and CEO of Commonwealth diagnostics.
