Hydrogen breath testing can provide information regarding the malabsorption of certain carbohydrates such as milk sugar (lactose) or fruit sugar (fructose).
These tests are also used to detect abnormal growth of bacteria, within the small intestine. Bacterial Overgrowth can cause a variety of symptoms including diarrhea, bloating, “gas” and abdominal cramps.
Your G.I. physician can assess your individual diagnostic needs and determine these tests are right for you.
Hydrogen Breath Testing can be scheduled in our Poughkeepsie location.
