Dumping Syndrome Workup

  • Author: Rajan Kanth, MD; Chief Editor: BS Anand, MD  more...
Updated: Mar 03, 2016

Approach Considerations

Note the following:

  • Signs and symptoms can be elicited with the glucose challenge test (50 g oral glucose).
  • A positive result from a hydrogen breath test after ingestion of glucose is also 100% sensitive.
  • A gastric emptying study may be helpful to document rapid gastric emptying.
  • An endoscopy or a barium study can be helpful in discerning the anatomy.
