Breath E-Z Systems’ HBT Sleuth hydrogen monitor is used to
perform a lactose intolerance breath test
. Lactose intolerance is the
inability to digest lactose, which is the sugar found in milk. The build up of
lactose causes severe cramping, bloating, gas or diarrhea when dairy products
are consumed. The main trigger for lactose intolerance is due to the body’s lack
of lactase, an enzyme normally produced by the small intestine.
The lactose intolerance breath test is a quick way to discover if a
patient has lactose intolerance. Studies indicate that a large majority of
patients (70%) who suffer from lactose intolerance do not attribute their
symptoms to lactose ingestion. In fact, physicians may be innocently misled
during their diagnosis by their patient’s inability to recognize the connection
of their symptoms to their diet. Our lactose intolerance breath test is
one of the most efficient ways of detecting lactose intolerance.
