Did you know irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) affects 1 in 7 adults and is the second biggest cause of absenteeism in the workplace.
Do you or someone you know experience IBS symptoms such as bloating, flatulence, stomach pain, constipation and/or diarrhoea?
These symptoms can often be caused by your bodies inability to absorb certain sugars also known as FODMAPs or due to an overgrowth of bacteria in the small intestine.
These conditions can easily be diagnosed using simple, non-invasive hydrogen/methane breath testing
Stream Diagnostics is Australia's leading provider of breath tests and is also the longest established diagnostic laboratory for hydrogen and methane breath testing.
We offer tests for a variety of sugars including Fructose, Lactose, Sorbitol, Sucrose, Mannitol and Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO).
Lactu-lose is a synthetic sugar unable to be absorbed by the body. It is used as a control test and helps to identify SIBO.
Fructose is a monosaccharide and a natural sugar. Fructose is commonly found in some fruits, vegetables and sweeteners.
Lactose is a double molecule sugar (disaccharide) which is found in milk and milk based products and in soft unripened cheese.
Sorbitol is a Polyol commonly found in some fruits and vegetables. It is used in “sugar free” products as an artificial sweetener.
SIBO occurs due to structural changes in the gastrointestinal tract. This results in colonic bacteria invading the small intestine.
Sucrose is a disaccharide commonly known as table sugar. It is broken down in the body by the Sucrase enzyme.
Mannitol is a Polyol commonly found in some fruits, vegetables, chewing gums, breath mints, and sugar free lollies.
