SIBO Breath Testing with Dr. Carr-Update as of late December, 2020

Update regarding Lactulose Breath Testing for SIBO

We have decided to again pause office breath testing for SIBO because of the COVID-19 surge here in Southern California.

Instead, we are helping patients to perform a very good new type of breath testing that includes testing for hydrogen sulfide as well as hydrogen and methane.  This test is called Trio-Smart.  It is provided using a kit that can be used at home or in the office.  At this time, we will help patients to receive this kit at home, and we will take care of helping patients to get the lactulose dose, which is not included in the testing kit.  The website for this new test is

See the other page on this website about the Trio-Smart breath testing.

Fax number to send orders for breath testing is 714-446-7910.  Phone number for messages to Dr Carr’s office is 714-446-5831 ext 1322.  We now also have an email address to aid in scheduling patients.  Please continue to include patient email addresses on the forms for ordering breath testing.  This makes it much easier to communicate with your patients.

We will update again when office breath testing can resume.

Thank you for your patience, and we hope you and your families all remain well during this challenging time.
