The HBT Sleuth hydrogen breath test is a precision instrument for detecting lactose intolerance. This monitor does hydrogen testing, which is among the gases produced in the intestinal lumen by the bacteriological breakdown of carbohydrates in the intestine. After diffusion into the bloodstream, the H2 is expired in the exhaled breath through the alveoli. This measure of H2 in exhaled breath is used to detect abnormal breakdown or malabsorption of carbohydrates in the intestine.
