GI Physiology Laboratory

GI Physiology Laboratory

Access to a GI physiology laboratory vastly improves the ability to screen and test patients, especially those with symptoms that are difficult to diagnose and treat. At Temple's state-of-the-art laboratory, we perform:

  • Gastric acid secretory testing
  • Pancreatic exocrine function tests, using secretin stimulation
  • Duodenal drainage with bile analysis for cholesterol and calcium bilirubinate crystals
  • Glucose and xylose tolerance testing
  • Impedance testing
  • A full complement of breath testing (lactose, lactulose, fructose, glucose and xylose)
