1 SUCROSE BREATH TEST Do Not Make Situation Panic for Patient There are lots of persons who suffer from the phobia of visiting a doctor which is mainly because of their previous experiences or stories heard about the doctors from their known ones. The situation for such patients becomes more critical if they are asked to undergo any type of test to diagnose the reasons of their physical problem. Whereas the fact is that different tests are conducted by the doctors to offer required treatment to the patient rather than experimenting different medicines on his body. Moreover all going for examination is not an indication that every time you suffer from any serious physical problem. On the contrary conducting tests even for normal diseases is helpful in curing the disease and eliminating it completely from its roots. Today there are lots of persons suffering from the problem of sugar

2 intolerance or in simple words the persons suffering from intolerance of sugar are not able to absorb the sugar elements found in different types of food items and suffer from various types of physical problems. For a layman sugar refers to the common sugar that is consumed at home in tea coffee or any other drinks. But do you know that there are different types of natural sugars for example lactose fructose lactulose glucose which are natural forms of sugar and found in fruits and vegetables. Anyhow as we are unaware about the presence of such sweeten items in our food items we get scared about the problem when our doctor asks us to undergo any type of test to diagnose our problem. Whereas the fact is that tests for these problems are carried through breath test and more interesting fact about these tests is that they can be conducted at home by the patient himself. Lets talk about Sucrose Breath Test which is mainly conducted on the patients suffering from the problem of sucrose intolerance. Talking about Sucrose in simple words it may be defined as a double molecule sugar that is recognized as table sugar which is digested by the help of sucrose enzyme found in the human body. If there is lack of this enzyme in human body the sucrose taken by the person is not completely absorbed and results in form of different problems like bloating stomach pain diarrhea etc. To identify the reasons of these problems the patient is recommended to go for the breath test of sucrose. Preparing for the sucrose breath test: 1. The person recommended to for the sucrose breath test has to take special diet during the first twelve hours of his test after which during the next twelve hours he has to keep strict fast. 2. The person is not allowed to sleep or exercise during or half-hour before the test. 3. He should also not smoke for atleast three-to four before or during the test.
