Description

SIBO is a condition in which abnormally large numbers of bacteria – the types that are normally found in the large intestine – are present in the small intestine.

When not functioning properly, the migrating motor complex (MMC) fails to effectively sweep intestinal contents into the colon during periods of fasting.

As a result, the invasive bacteria interfere with healthy digestive and absorption processed, leading to unpleasant symptoms and chronic illness. The World Journal of Gastroenterology claims a definitive association between irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and SIBO, suggesting that SIBO be excluded before diagnosing a patient with IBS.

Common conditions associated with SIBO:

  • Nausea
  • Flatulence
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation Malnutrition
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Leaky Gut Syndrome
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Acid Reflux
  • Rosacea
  • Fibromyalgia
  • GERD
