FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is trio-smart?
trio-smart is a mail-in breath test that aids in the diagnosis of small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), intestinal methanogenic overgrowth (IMO) and excess hydrogen sulfide. trio-smart is the only three-gas breath test that measures all of the primary fermented gases produced in your gut: hydrogen, methane, and hydrogen sulfide. Breath samples can be collected in the comfort of your own home. Data from trio-smart can help you and your provider determine the best course of treatment for you.
How do I know if trio-smart is right for me?
If you experience any of the following symptoms once a week or more for at least four weeks, then trio-smart could provide you with answers about your GI symptoms: bloating (especially after eating), gas, diarrhea and/or constipation.
What does trio-smart detect?
The trio-smart breath test measures the three primary fermented gases produced in your microbiome. The gases measured are hydrogen, methane, and hydrogen sulfide.
Hydrogen is produced when certain bacteria consume sugars.
Hydrogen levels are considered abnormal when they rise greater than 20 ppm (parts per million) from the baseline within 90 minutes.
Abnormal levels of hydrogen are indicative of small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO).
Methane is produced when archaea (single-celled organisms similar to bacteria) consume hydrogen.
Methane levels are considered abnormal if they reach ≥10 ppm (parts per million) at any point during the breath test.
Abnormal levels of methane are indicative of intestinal methanogenic overgrowth (IMO).
Hydrogen sulfide is produced when hydrogen sulfide producing organisms consume hydrogen.
Hydrogen sulfide levels are considered abnormal if they reach ≥3ppm (parts per million) at any point during the breath test.
Abnormal levels of hydrogen sulfide are indicative of excess hydrogen sulfide.
How accurate is trio-smart?
trio-smart measures the levels of gases in your breath and adheres to the thresholds laid out in the North American Consensus for breath testing. trio-smart is incredibly precise with the gas measurements it provides. Conventional breath testing has a detection sensitivity of ±2 ppm. The trio-smart device had a detection sensitivity of ±0.1 ppm, significantly minimizing the rates of false negatives/positives.
Do I need a doctor to order trio-smart for me?
trio-smart is a doctor-ordered test. You can order trio-smart by working with a doctor online. Results are delivered directly to you within seven business days. trio-smart can also be ordered directly through your healthcare provider.
