Patients can do the SIBO test at our clinic in central London with the help of our nurse or we can post you a test kit to do at home.
This test measures levels of hydrogen and methane in the breath after ingestion of Lactulose or Glucose. Breath samples are collected 10 times over 3 hours done either at home or in the clinic in central London.
If you wish to do the clinic in central London there will be an additional charge.
