A lactose intolerance test is typically ordered by a
physician if he suspects the patient's ongoing symptoms of flatulence, bloating,
stomach cramps and diarrhea. Physicians using Breathe E-Z Systems’ HBT Sleuth's lactose intolerance
test within the privacy of their clinic and obtain
results within minutes.
A lactose intolerance test measures the amount of hydrogen within a patient’s
breath sample. Healthy individuals have very little hydrogen in their breath.
However, patients with lactose intolerance have a high level of hydrogen in
their breath. This surplus of hydrogen is created by undigested lactose in the
colon, which ferments and produces various unhealthy gases, including hydrogen.
Adverse affects from the build-up of these gases can range from bloating to
stomach cramps and nausea.
Systems to set up an appointment for a demonstration of our HBT Sleuth’s
lactose intolerance test. Our HBT Sleuth is a powerful machine that measures
hydrogen levels in expired breath in accurate ppm (parts per million). The HBT
Sleuth is affordable, easy to use and provides an added in-office lactose
intolerance test for the convenience of your patients.
