Preparation for the test

You will be sent full instructions with your Smart SIBO test kit. To do the test you will need to follow a prep diet for 1 day, or if constipated 2 days before the Smart SIBO test and then you will need to fast overnight before doing the test. Water is allowed whilst fasting. Your instructions include details about which foods you can eat and provide a meal plan as well.

On the day of the test

In the morning you will take a control breath sample and then drink a solution of glucose. You then collect a breath sample every 20 minutes for the next 3 hours. After the last sample has been collected you can then eat and drink as normal.

Returning your samples

The lab we use prefer samples to be returned by guaranteed next day delivery. Unfortunately as Royal Mail will not allow us to supply you with pre paid guaranteed delivery packaging so you will need to arrange and pay for this. Your package will however come with an addressed envelope.

Samples need to arrive back at the lab within 7 days of completing the samples.
The vials can be posted by airmail should you be outside the UK.

Getting your results 

Once processed (using the certified Quintron equipment) your results will be plotted on a graph. A rise in either hydrogen, methane or both at inappropriate points on the graph will demonstrate fermentation and the presence of bacterial overgrowth – SIBO.

We send out your results and let you know if your results are positive for hydrogen or methane SIBO. We also send a test interpretation guide which you can share with your GP or health care provider.

We are also happy to refer you to the IBSandSIBOclinics should you want help treating your SIBO or other digestive problems
