trio-smart Breath (SIBO & IMO)
The trio-smart breath test is applicable to patients who experience ongoing bloating, gas, abdominal pain, constipation and/or diarrhea. trio-smart measures the levels of hydrogen, methane, and hydrogen sulfide in your breath. Elevated levels of gases can indicate small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), intestinal methanogenic overgrowth (IMO), and/or excess hydrogen sulfide. Data from the trio-smart breath test can help guide treatment, e.g. specific antibiotics to treat the overgrowth. The test kit will be shipped to you within 7 business days. Once the breath samples are collected they need to be mailed to the lab using prepaid labels. Results are generally received within 7 business days of mailing out the specimen samples.
The price includes the clinical fees and processing fees, the doctor order, the test kit with the return shipping label, the analysis of the breath samples itself and the test results and recommendations based on your individual outcome. A consultation with a doctor providing further guidance and/or treatment based on your test result is not included but can be booked using the QuickMD app for $75.
