HYDROGEN - METHANE - HYDROGEN SULFIDE
GET A MORE COMPLETE PICTURE
The trio-smart breath test measures the levels of hydrogen, methane, and hydrogen sulfide to aid in the diagnosis of conditions like SIBO, IMO, and excess hydrogen sulfide.
trio-smart is a doctor-ordered test. Patients interested in trio-smart should consult their healthcare providers.
Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)
No correlation with symptoms
Intestinal Methanogenic Overgrowth (IMO)
Excess Hydrogen Sulfide
The American College of Gastroenterology Clinical Guidelines for Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) provides an authoritative overview of SIBO and IMO.
The North American Consensus on Hydrogen and Methane-Based Breath Testing in Gastrointestinal Disorders establishes common standards utilized by trio-smart.
A SUPERIOR APPROACH TO BREATH TESTING
trio-smart provides the complete profile of the primary fermented gases in the microbiome.
In a recent study, it was determined that hydrogen is consumed to produce methane and hydrogen sulfide. trio-smart provides a complete picture of this complex interplay with measurements of hydrogen, methane and hydrogen sulfide.
trio-smart is the only clinical breath test to measure hydrogen sulfide in addition to hydrogen and methane.
In a recent study, subjects with elevated levels of hydrogen sulfide had the greatest diarrhea among subjects referred for testing. Patients with elevated hydrogen sulfide levels may have appeared "normal" on previous breath tests.
trio-smart measurement is precise and reliable.
In a recent study, the device used for trio-smart testing was determined to be “at least equivalent to conventional breath testing for assessing bacterial overgrowth.” The trio-smart device had a detection sensitivity of ±0.1 ppm. Conventional breath testing has a detection sensitivity of ±2 ppm.
