Breath test

My consultant has booked me in for a breath test to see if there is any infections, has anyone had one and should I be worried?

Thanks Twiglet12

    Never had a breath test. They check infection by a blood test usually.  I would rather have had a breath test.

    I have no idea why my post was removed as only mentioned the breath test can be for testing on small intestinal bacteria overgrowth. Oh well. Anyway good luck with you test and hope it gives you the results you want and a way forward.
