lactose breath test

Breathe E-Z systems’ HBT Sleuth hydrogen monitor is a proven method to perform a precision lactose breath test. Physicians across the U.S. successfully use our HBT Sleuth hydrogen monitor lactose breath test in order to determine if a patient has lactose intolerance.

Lactose intolerance is the inability to digest the sugar found in milk and milk products which is called lactose. After dairy products are consumed, and the body is unable to digest the lactose, the intolerance causes gas, diarrhea, cramping and bloating. By performing a simple, non-invasive HBT Sleuth lactose breath test, the physician determines in minutes if a patient has lactose intolerance.

Studies have determined there are many reasons why a person may be or may become lactose intolerant which include:

• Problematic digestive tract conditions, such as Celiac and Crohn’s disease,
• Side-effects from certain medications can trigger temporary lactose intolerance, and
• Age-related intolerance where as people get older, their bodies usually stop producing the lactase enzyme which makes
  them lactose intolerant.
