Breathalizer Test For IBS

I heard about a test that shows bacteria in the intestines. Can anyone tell me anything about this...I heard it's some kind of breathalizer test. Thank you.

Re: Breathalizer Test For IBS

I had heard about that, too--so at least you're not the only one. I don't know anyone who's had it done, though.

I just signed up today, and I've been reading all of the posts. There seems to be a lot of emphasis on bacteria, and it's making me wonder because I had food poisoning once and took antibiotics a lot as a kid. If it is "bad" bacteria, couldn't the docs give us some other antibiotics and we'd all be cured? I guess not, since many of you have been seeing your doctor regularly.

I'd like to hear more about the bacteria idea if anyone knows anything...
