Dysfunctional Gut Syndrome - Gut fermentation

Abnormal gut fermentation frequently presents with symptoms of irritable bowel, catarrhal symptoms and mild cerebral dysfunction such as inability to concentrate, fatigue and "brain fog or fag.” The best test is excess ethanol production on a fasting sugar challenge (normal < 22 micromoles per liter). Excess β-alanine excretion is another test. [J Royal Soc Med, 1995;88:63-66. 22682 (1995)] Summary Interview
