Breath Hydrogen & Methane tests are invaluable in helping evaluate functional bloating, diarrhea, constipation and suspected malabsorptions such as Lactose Malabsorption and Fructose Malabsorption. These tests are simple and safe alternatives compared to more invasive procedures such as biopsies and/or obtaining aspirates for culturing. Hydrogen breath tests aids in the diagnosis of Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) which provides a framework for understanding Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) patients. The types of gas produced by bacteria in the digestive tract are an important factor in this understanding. Studies from industry leaders using QuinTron products have demonstrated that among IBS subjects, methane produced during lactulose breath testing is associated with constipation predominance both subjectively and objectively. (Am J Gastroenterol 2007;102:1-5) QuinTron is the original manufacturer of breath-testing instrumentation to offer the ability to measure both hydrogen and methane in a single sample of breath (alveolar air), which adds reliability to the breath test and properly diagnosing patients while adding the ability to measure Carbon Dioxide (CO2) in each sample ensures each sample is of good quality and offers consistent results for the physician to review.
