lactose intolerance breath test

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.
