What is HMBT?
When your food is digested, it is broken down by the bacteria in your gut and this process releases the gases Hydrogen and/or Methane, which can then be measured on your breath2. Both Hydrogen and Methane can be measured because it is estimated that 33-41% of the population are Methane3, 4, 5 producers.
Based on the levels of the gases you breathe out, healthcare professionals can determine what might be upsetting your stomach and provide you with nutritional advice or medication.
