    Hi all. my doctor wants me to get a breath test for bacterial overgrowth but he wants the one by QuinTron.

    has anyone out there had this test? my doctor wants me to have it in person and not use a mail-in kit. apparently, they test your breath intermittently for 3 hrs or something.

    I cannot find anyone near me who does this. I am in Toronto. Strangely, I cannot even find anyone in Niagara Falls or Buffalo! There appears to be a hospital in buffalo but from the net, it looks like they do the test only on children!

    Interested to hear your results. Is this a mainstream or alternative medical test? I haven't heard of this.

    Strange, I had it done at my local university hospital 2 times. Once with glucose and once with fructose.
