Breathtrackers analyse the presence of Hydrogen and Methane to assist Doctors and Practitioners in the identification of their patients gastrointestinal disorders/conditions such as carbohydrate malabsorptions/intolerances (Lactose Intolerance, Fructose Intolerance, etc.) and Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO).
Hydrogen Breath Tests (or HBT) are used as a means for clinicians to asses people various digestive disorders to see if they can help narrow down what may be causing the digestive issues such as,
Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth and/or common food intolerances. The test is simple, non-invasive, and is performed after a short period of fasting (typically 12 hours). The test itself does not diagnose, that is left up to interpretation by a medical professional.
When testing for conditions like Lactose Intolerance, Fructose Intolerance and Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO).
Studies have demonstrated the importance of Hydrogen (H2) and Methane (CH4) production, indicating more than 30% of healthy adult subjects produce Methane in addition to or instead of Hydrogen increasing the ability for medical professionals to review the most comprehensive results to best aid them in their decision of how to best relieve patients gastrointestinal disorders/symptoms.
