Update On The Hydrogen Breath Testing- The Gluten One

Recommended Posts

Yes we did it this past Monday and it was the easiest test we have done, just time consuming. The hardest part for my 3 yr old was to drink the liquid in the 10 minutes he had to drink. Other than that he just had to blow in a baggy thing that had a mouth piece on it first every 15 mins then every 1/2 hr for a total of 3 hours. He didn't seem to have any reactions or side effects. I got ahold of the GI doc today and she said everything looked good; one part the #'s are questionable but other than that she has now given us the ok to challenge him by going gluten free.

So the test didn't really tell us anything, hopefully the diet will show us improvements.
