Lactulose/mannitol test has high efficacy for excluding organic causes of chronic diarrhea

, : Lactulose/mannitol test has high efficacy for excluding organic causes of chronic diarrhea. American Journal of Gastroenterology 98(10): 2245-2252

OBJECTIVES: Diagnosis in chronic diarrhea in the absence of a distinctive clinical pattern is often challenging, as biochemical tests prescribed at the first evaluation do not show enough sensitivity and specificity to tailor further investigation. Intestinal permeability to sugars is an accurate test for detecting intestinal damage. The aim of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic value of the lactulose/mannitol (L/M) test in patients with chronic diarrhea.
