GUT FEELING - Gastrolab News for GPs
Volume 15: Autumn 2017

In this edition of GUT FEELING, Gastroenterologist and Hepatologist Dr Anil Asthana provides an overview of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD), a chronic digestive disease. GORD occurs when stomach acid or stomach content flows back into the oesophagus, with the reflux irritating the lining of the oesophagus. In most cases, GORD can be relieved through diet and lifestyle changes; however, some people may require medication or surgery.

  • The Importance of Methane Breath Testing

GUT FEELING  - Gastrolab news for GPs Volume 8: Summer

Malabsorption of dietary sugars, such as lactose and fructose commonly leads to symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome such as bloating, cramps, and diarrhoea.

The hydrogen breath test is now a well-established non-invasive test for assessing malabsorption of sugars in the small intestine, and for the detection of small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO). There are patients however, who can suffer from the same spectrum of malabsorption issues but who produce little or no hydrogen, instead producing relatively large amounts of methane. This issue of the so-called “low/non-hydrogen producer” has been reviewed in a recent publication by Costello et al 1.
