Summary of "High Prevalence of Pathological Hydrogen Breath Tests in Patients with Functional Dyspepsia."

The aim of the study is to investigate the frequency of pathological hydrogen breath tests (HBT) in patients with clinical features of functional dyspepsia (FD) meeting the Rome criteria and normal testing of upper endoscopy and abdominal sonography.

C-glucose breath tests: a non-invasive method for detecting early clinical manifestations of exogenous glucose metabolism in type 2 diabetic patients.

C-glucose breath tests are reported as an alternative non-invasive method to evaluate glucose metabolism. However, the metabolic results differ based on the site of the carbon atom in the glucose. The...

Hydrogen and Methane-Based Breath Testing and Outcomes in Patients with Heart Failure.

Recent evidence endorses gut microbiota dysregulation in the pathophysiology of heart failure (HF). Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) might be present in HF and associated to poor clinical ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Any tests done on exhaled air.

The constant presence of diseases or infectious agents within a given geographic area or population group. It may also refer to the usual prevalence of a given disease with such area or group. It includes holoendemic and hyperendemic diseases. A holoendemic disease is one for which a high prevalent level of infection begins early in life and affects most of the child population, leading to a state of equilibrium such that the adult population shows evidence of the disease much less commonly than do children (malaria in many communities is a holoendemic disease). A hyperendemic disease is one that is constantly present at a high incidence and/or prevalence rate and affects all groups equally. (Last, A Dictionary of Epidemiology, 3d ed, p53, 78, 80)

Diagnostic procedures, such as laboratory tests and x-rays, routinely performed on all individuals or specified categories of individuals in a specified situation, e.g., patients being admitted to the hospital. These include routine tests administered to neonates.

A pyrazolone with analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and antipyretic properties but has risk of AGRANULOCYTOSIS. A breath test with 13C-labeled aminopyrine has been used as a non-invasive measure of CYTOCHROME P-450 metabolic activity in LIVER FUNCTION TESTS.

A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of THIAMINE in the diet, characterized by anorexia, irritability, and weight loss. Later, patients experience weakness, peripheral neuropathy, headache, and tachycardia. In addition to being caused by a poor diet, thiamine deficiency in the United States most commonly occurs as a result of alcoholism, since ethanol interferes with thiamine absorption. In countries relying on polished rice as a dietary staple, BERIBERI prevalence is very high. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p1171)
