Firstly, let's talk about why you are here...

The chances are you are suffering from symptoms and want to feel great again.

We've been there too (we really have!), we understand the struggle and how hard it is to find the answers you need.

You're not alone — Healthpath can give you the expert insight, support and guidance to get your health back on track.

What is SIBO?

What is Small Bacterial Overgrowth, or SIBO for short?

What is SIBO?

Well, it’s when your small intestine hosts more bacteria, both good and bad, than it should.

This bacterial overgrowth can lead to a whole host of uncomfortable and sometimes awkward symptoms, including bloating, abdominal pain, diarrohea, fatigue, and weakness.

The symptoms can go beyond just digestive issues, so SIBO is often overlooked as a possible culprit behind various health problems such as chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, roseacea, autoimmune diseases, psoriasis, osteoporosis, fatty liver, metabolic syndrome, restless legs, cystitis and more. 

The good news is, there’s a simple way to check for it – a DIY breath test you can easily do at home. 

Don't just guess: Test and take action, with expert help.

SIBO Home Breath test

There’s many SIBO tests on the market now, but the results aren’t always black and white.

And what’s even more important, is knowing how to take action to get rid of those symptoms and improve your health in the most effective way.

This is where Healthpath comes in. 

Not only do we use a gold-standard test and methodology — which we also now supply to the NHS — you can also choose a Plan or Package where our expert practitioners look at your symptoms and health history to give you a bespoke health plan of action.

A path to a better, healthier you.

That’s why we’re called Healthpath, and why thousands of doctors & practitioners recommend us.

About the SIBO Breath Test

For this simple, at-home hydrogen methane breath test, you drink a sugary solution and collect breath samples over 2.5 hours. The type of gas found in your breath will reveal if you have bacteria where it shouldn’t be, and what type they are, to give you the insight you need.

Here's a sample report so you can know what to expect.

Trying to find solutions to your gut health issues is complicated enough. On top of that, you’ve probably discovered that there are dozens of competing companies in this area – offering SIBO or other types of microbiome testing, with a wide range of features and prices.

It’s a minefield. One which we are here to help guide you through.

We’d love to take a few moments to help you, to answer your questions or concerns, and to give you some genuine advice.

 

Frequently asked questions

Which testing option is right for me?

We believe good health should be accessible to all, this is why we offer 3 different packages all with interest-free payments.

If you’ve been suffering from long-term symptoms and want the best support to achieve your health goals, we’d strongly recommend you choose our Package option which includes a personalised plan and call with one of our practitioners.

However, no matter which testing option you choose, you can be assured that you’re getting the most comprehensive test on the market, and all test results are reviewed by our team of experienced practitioners.

Can I upgrade my package after purchase?

Yes, if you’d like to upgrade to the SIBO Plan or SIBO Package please get in touch with our team at hello@healthpath.com.

Plese note: Adding a plan or health coaching call after your test purchase may be more expensive, so we strongly recommend you opt for the SIBO Plan or SIBO Package at the point of first purchase.

Is SIBO a real condition?

Yes, with a few caveats. We refer to SIBO as a condition for simplicity, but it’s technically a dysbiotic state in which there’s too much bacteria in the small intestine. For some people this can cause no symptoms at all, but for others it can contribute to a variety of symptoms. In this way, SIBO isn’t a condition in and of itself—but an imbalance that contributes to other diagnosable conditions. Having said this, SIBO is certainly something that’s detectable and treatable. The North American Consensus, which was written in 2017, defines the state and outlines the best way to test for it. You can read a copy of this consensus here.

How do I know if I have SIBO?

The only way to be sure you have SIBO is to take a breath test. However, if you suffer from IBS, fibromyalgia or rosacea, you’re much more likely to have to condition. Other common SIBO symptoms are listed above.

Who should take this test?

Anyone suffering from IBS or fibromyalgia should take this SIBO test. This is because 84% of IBS cases are actually believed to be SIBO, while 77% of people with fibromyalgia also have SIBO. If you suffer from rosacea or digestive symptoms that haven’t responded to more common interventions, this test could be helpful for you too.

How do I take this test?

You can see full instructions on our help centre page.

Do I need to stop taking supplements or medications before taking this test?

You must not stop any medications in order to take this SIBO test. Please speak to your GP first. If you’re currently taking antibiotics or herbal antimicrobials, wait 4 weeks after finishing the course of treatment before taking the test. We recommend avoiding taking probiotics for 48 hours before taking the test.

Is there anything I need to do before taking this test?

You should avoid high-fibre or slowly digesting foods for at least 24 hours before taking the test. You must also avoid all food 8–12 hours before taking the test. The whole testing process takes 2.5 hours, so you’ll need to make sure you can fit it into your day. Visit our help centre article to learn more about what to do before and during the test.

What should I do if I have a question or an issue with taking my sample?

If you have any questions or issues with taking your sample according to the instructions provided, it is important you contact us before you send your sample to the lab.

Healthpath cannot guarantee to intercept your sample once it arrives at the lab and so it may still be processed.

Contact us on hello@healthpath.com.

How long will it take to get my results?

Return your samples using the pre-paid returns envelope via post box (choose a priority post box where available). Your sample will be sent to our partner in London (please note the tracking number) and then sent to our lab in Germany. You will receive an update when it arrives in Germany 2- 5 working days after posting.

Your results will be posted on your online account a maximum of 14 days after your samples arrive at the lab.

How do I view my results?

Simply log in to your Healthpath account here and click ‘Tests’. You’ll be able to access your results and personalised recommendations (if applicable) two weeks after returning your samples (sometimes sooner).

How will I know what my SIBO test results mean?

All your results data is accompanied by clear, jargon-free explanations. Our practitioners also review all results and include a written summary of helpful insights.

Can I claim the cost of the test on my private health insurance?

It’s possible, though you’ll need to check the details of your insurance to see what’s included.

Can I buy a test for my child?

We do offer tests for children, but it’s important you work with a practitioner experienced in working with children.

Personalised, 1 to 1 support with a practitioner is safer and more effective when analysing test results for children and providing appropriate advice.

It is important to reach out to our team to discuss the test before you purchase.
