BREATH TEST FOR DETECTION OF HELICOBACTOR PYLORI, LACTOSE INTOLERANCE AND BACTERIAL GROWTH

 

Breath testing allows for a non-invasive diagnostic testing to allow for the evaluation of certain symptoms commonly experienced by our patients.  Some tests are performed in our office, while others can be accomplished at home.

Results of these tests can lead to a variety of dietary recommendations and/or new prescriptions to achieve specific symptoms.  Many patients who may have an initial negative evaluation with laboratory or imaging tests may require specialized breath testing offered by our practice to find more subtle causes of their symptoms.
