amounts may suggest another diagnosis. Diagnosis Clinical diagnosis Hydrogen breath test for confirmation Lactose intolerance can usually be diagnosed with a careful history supported by dietary challenge. Patients usually have a history of diarrhea and/or gas after ingestion of milk and dairy foods; other symptoms, such as rash, wheezing, or other anaphylactic symptoms (particularly in infants and children), suggest a cow's milk allergy . Milk allergy is rare in adults and also may cause vomiting (...) and symptoms of esophageal reflux, which are not manifestations of carbohydrate intolerance. The diagnosis is also suggested if the stool from chronic or intermittent diarrhea is acidic (pH < 6) and can be confirmed by an H 2 breath test or a lactose tolerance test. In the hydrogen breath test, 50 g of lactose is given orally and the hydrogen produced by bacterial metabolism of undigested lactose is measured with a breath meter at 2, 3, and 4 h postingestion. Most affected patients have an increase

The 14 C-xylose breath test helps diagnose bacterial overgrowth. 14 C-xylose is given orally, and the exhaled 14 CO 2 concentration is measured. Catabolism of ingested xylose by the overgrowth of flora causes 14 CO 2 to appear in exhaled breath. The hydrogen (H 2 ) breath test measures the exhaled hydrogen produced by the bacterial degradation of carbohydrates. In patients with disaccharidase deficiencies, enteric bacteria degrade nonabsorbed

147. Mild CFTR mutations and genetic predisposition to lactase persistence in cystic fibrosis. Full Text available with Trip Pro

, hydrogen-methane breath test (BT) with lactose loading was conducted and clinical symptoms typical for lactose malabsorption were assessed. The percentage of CF patients with C/C was similar to that observed in healthy subjects (HS) (31.5 vs 32.5% ). Eleven out of 52 (24.5%) CF C/C patients had abnormal BT results. The recalculated frequency of lactose malabsorption was similar for the entire CF and HS populations (6.9 vs 7.2%). Similarly as in the control group, few CF patients have identified (...) and linked to lactose consumption clinical symptoms. The frequency of LCT polymorphic variants in CF patients having and not having severe mutations of CFTR gene showed significant differences. The C allele was more frequent in homozygotes of the severe mutations than in patients carrying at least one mild/unknown mutation (P<0.0028) and in patients with at least one mild mutation (P < 0.0377). In conclusion, CF patients carrying mild CFTR mutations seem to have lower genetic predisposition to ATH

148. Effect of age on fructose malabsorption in children presenting with gastrointestinal symptoms. (Abstract)

Effect of age on fructose malabsorption in children presenting with gastrointestinal symptoms. Fructose malabsorption can produce symptoms such as chronic diarrhoea and abdominal pain. Here, we retrospectively review breath hydrogen test (BHT) results to determine whether age has an effect on the clinical application of the fructose BHT and compare this with the lactose BHT.Patients were referred to a gastroenterology breath-testing clinic (2003-2008) to investigate carbohydrate malabsorption (...) as a cause of gastrointestinal symptoms. Patients received either 0.5 g/kg body weight of fructose (maximum of 10 g) or 2 g/kg of lactose (maximum of 20 g), in water, and were tested for 2.5 hours.Patient age showed a significant effect on the fructose BHT results (P < 0.001, 0.1-79 years old, n = 1093). The odds of testing positive for fructose malabsorption in paediatric patients (15 years old or younger, n = 760) decreased by a factor of 0.82/year (95% confidence interval 0.79-0.86, P < 0.001

In combination with yucca schidigera, and zinc acetate, this was increased to an 86% reduction in hydrogen sulfide, although flatus volume and number was unchanged.

154. Investigation of Alanine in Fructose Intolerance: A Dose Ranging Study

with unexplained GI symptoms is thought to be between 11-50%, when assessed with breath tests following administration of 25 grams of fructose in a 10% solution. Restriction of dietary fructose has been shown to improve symptoms in these patients to an extent. Currently, there are no therapeutic agents that improve intestinal fructose absorption and thereby decrease symptoms. Studies in the pediatric population have shown that fructose absorption in the small intestine is increased in the presence of glucose (...) or amino acids, especially alanine. Objective: The investigators' objective is to assess whether co-administration of an oral solution of L-alanine facilitates fructose absorption and decreases gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms associated with fructose malabsorption in subjects undergoing standard fructose breath test when compared to placebo. Methods and analysis: The investigators propose a randomized, double-blind study in 40 subjects with known fructose intolerance. After an overnight fast, each

155. Validation of Breath Tests in Diagnosing Small Bowel Bacterial Overgrowth

no known hydrogen production occurs in mammalian tissue. The hydrogen breath test most often used in routine clinical practice uses glucose. However, the utility of this test is mostly limited by its low sensitivity, because there are "nonproducers" in up to 25% of the subjects tested. The investigators have developed a stable isotope breath test using 13C-labeled lactose-ureide. Glycosyl-ureides are condensation products of reducing sugars and urea in aqueous acid. Lactose-[13C]ureide has been used (...) to investigate oro-caecal transit time because it resists digestion by small intestinal enzymes and is hydrolyzed by bacterial enzymes in the large intestine. A number of studies have described the use of this substrate in adults and children. The aim of the present study was to investigate the lactose-[13C]ureide breath test in subjects with suspected SBBO and to compare its results with the results of the glucose hydrogen breath test. Microbiological analyses of upper intestinal bacterial cultures were

A comparison of diagnostic tests for lactose malabsorption--which one is the best? Perceived milk intolerance is a common complaint, and tests for lactose malabsorption (LM) are unreliable. This study assesses the agreement between diagnostic tests for LM and describes the diagnostic properties of the tests.Patients above 18 years of age with suspected LM were included. After oral intake of 25 g lactose, a combined test with measurement of serum glucose (s-glucose) and hydrogen (H2) and methane (...) %) had LM. The agreement (kappa-values) between the methods varied from 0.25 to 0.91. The best test was the lactose breath test with measurement of the increase in H2 + CH4x2 in expired air. With a cut-off level < 18 ppm, the area under the ROC-curve was 0.967 and sensitivity was 100%. This shows that measurement of CH4 in addition to H2 improves the diagnostic properties of the breath test.The agreement between commonly used methods for the diagnosis of LM was unsatisfactory.

There was no relationship between lactose intake and breath hydrogen tests in either group. There were no differences in bacterial counts between the two groups, nor was there a relationship between bacterial counts and lactose intake in either group.The differential bacterial effects of lactose were not quantitatively detected in stool samples taken in the present study.

Comparison of the prevalence of fructose and lactose malabsorption across chronic intestinal disorders. Fructose malabsorption, lactose malabsorption and an early rise in breath hydrogen after lactulose (ERBHAL) may play roles in induction of symptoms in gastrointestinal conditions.To compare prevalence and interactions of fructose malabsorption, lactose malabsorption and ERBHAL among healthy subjects and those with chronic intestinal disorders using consistent breath hydrogen testing (...) methodologies.Consecutive series of Caucasian patients with Crohn's disease (n = 91), ulcerative colitis (56), functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGID) (201), coeliac disease (136) and 71 healthy volunteers underwent breath hydrogen testing using lactulose, fructose and lactose.Early rise in breath hydrogen after lactulose occurred more commonly in healthy controls (39%) than in Crohn's disease (20%) and untreated coeliac disease (14%; P < 0.008), but not FGID (27%), ulcerative colitis (26%) or treated coeliac
