Well SIBO could be the cause of all your issues.....
A double blind randomised study revealed that 84% of IBS patients exhibited bacterial overgrowth based on the lactulose breath test.
So what is SIBO?
Small intestine bacterial overgrowth
It is a condition, where bacteria that may be healthy in other areas of the body, overgrows in the wrong location, in the small intestine. This can lead to a huge variety of symptoms, that do overlap with IBS. SIBO can actually be the cause of your IBS symptoms. This is why it is so important to be properly tested, to see if you are positive and then begin the very specific and effective treatment.
Not all testing for SIBO is created equal and it is important that you are guided through all the steps.
To find out if your symptoms could be due to SIBO
