It’s associated with various medical conditions and anatomical anomalies. While it’s diagnosis and treatment are not yet solidly defined, it can be diagnosed via breath test and treatment regimes are antibiotic based.

Any idea how the carbohydrate breath test for SIBO diagnosis ordered in Canada? I'm a family practice resident in Ontario and I've only heard of the hydrogen breath test for lactose intolerance. A quick Lifelabs search came up negative. Thanks!

Hi Jessica - Vanessa has heard they do it at Queen's in Kingston. Maybe a place to start asking around?
