Hey wink

I have been searching the Internet regarding information about London based clinics offering the Heidelberg test. With little luck unfortunately. 

Do anyone here happen to know about a place?

thanks and merry Christmas

    Sorry, I don't have an answer.

    Why do you want the Heidelberg test? Do you suspect you have low stomach acid and why?

    If your doctor / gastroenterologist considers this a possibility, you're more likely to be offered 24 pH manometry under NHS.

      Yes that is exactly what I expect. I already had the 24ph test, but it only measures in the throat/esophagus not the stomach. 

      The 24h test did show some reflux, but not acidic enough to conclude too much acid. Never the less I was put on ppi which made things worse. 

      Therefore I expect low stomach acid.

    Hi

    I had my 24 pH test done at the Function Gut Clinic. Upper Wimpole St. If they don't do it, they may be able to advise. I know they do it in Bristol

      Hi kjustesen

      Sorry, I meant that this clinic may do the Heidelberg test or at least point you in the right direction. There are some great gastro dr's there.
