The sugar absorption test is a non-invasive test for investigating intestinal permeability by simultaneous measurement of four probe sugars. In this study, we evaluated the utility of raffinose, lactose, sucrose and mannitol as probe sugars and calculated their urinary recovery as a percentage of ingested dose (mol/mol) and the recovery ratios of raffinose/mannitol, lactose/ raffinose and sucrose/raffinose. The reference ranges for these ratios, established from 39 healthy volunteers, are 0.005-0.015, 0.13-0...

A simple and reliable test for the diagnosis of hyposucrasia is required, since this may be an unsuspected cause of long-standing gastrointestinal disorder. Furthermore little has been done to define the epidemiology of this condition, possibly because of the limitations of multiple blood-sampling. Breath hydrogen (H2) production after lactose ingestion is a reliable test for hypolactasia, and has now been measured after sucrose ingestion in eleven patients with various gastrointestinal symptoms. Six who had normal sucrase activity on jejunal biopsy produced no H2 after taking 50 g of sucrose...
