A hydrogen breath test provides information about the digestion of certain sugars or carbohydrates, such as milk sugar (lactose) or fruit sugar (fructose). The test detects lactose intolerance, fructose malabsorption and abnormal growth of bacteria (Bacterial overgrowth) and can clarify the cause of symptoms incl. diarrhoea, bloating, gas, and abdominal cramps.
