Have you had a sucrose breath test . After the c.diff. I can no longer digest sucrose. I have to take the enzyme. This caused massive bloating. Table sugar is a a hidden ingredient in many foods.

Hi there ,at least sibo can be cured with the right antibiotics and probiotics. The breath test (kit) was supplied by my doctor. I did the test (thought it was a waste of time) and mailed it to the lab the results came back showing 0 sucrose activity. I also did the sibo breath test which came back negative. There are several types of breath tests. Sibo breath test looks for hydrogen in the breath meaning positive for sibo. You had an actual culture that is a definitive diagnosis. Take the antibiotics and ask which probiotic to take and when. The breath test for sucrose intolerance is as accurate as the sibo test. The sucrose test measures hydrogen methane in the breath. Thank you for responding
I had c. diff for a year and after 2 negative cultures I still had horrible bloating after meals . I finally had a sucruse breath test and I tested sucrase defficient . The question is now what. It looks like I can only eat green veggies,salad and protien.Will I survive on this diet. I certainly can't afford Sucraid ,the needed enzyme to digest sucrose into glucose and fructose. The drug is $8084.00/month . Help…anyone with this ailment ?
I have this problem post c.diff. and it is ruining my life. The only thing that helps to moderate this is creon. Now on a lark, I saw an ENT for a food allergy test. He found I was allergic to dairy. Eliminating all dairy has helped. This may help you. I had been guzzling a gallon of milk since childhood. You may be eating something you are actually allergic to. This was not a cure but it has helped alittle.
