Clinically evidenced diagnostics and dietary management

We offer research led diagnostics and dietary programmes to diagnose, treat and manage gastrointestinal symptoms related to irritable bowel syndrome. Services include:

Hydrogen breath testing (HBT)

A simple non-invasive diagnostic tool for those with IBS and/or food intolerances. An HBT can identify possible factors affecting bowel conditions, such as small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, or sugar intolerances.

An HBT must be prescribed by a registered doctor and the prescription sent to the Dietetics and Nutrition team in advance of testing.


FODMAP stands for, Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides and Polyols – a group of short-chain carbohydrates that are poorly absorbed. 

Our dietitians have a programme designed to eliminate certain foods typically high in FODMAPs that can cause abdominal pain, which is then followed by a reintroduction plan to assess tolerance levels. The low FODMAP diet is scientifically proven to be effective in those experiencing irritable bowel syndrome.

All our dietitians are accredited in the low FODMAP diet and create personalised plans dependent on individual needs.
