SIBO 

SIBO stands for Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth. While bacteria in your digestive system or "gut" are normal and necessary for the breakdown of foods and absorption of nutrients, the highest concentration is typically in your colon, not the small intestine. When bacteria overpopulate in the small intestine, you might not be able to properly assimilate nutrients from your food. This, in turn, can lead to aggravation of existing chronic health conditions, or painful side effects. If you are experiencing a cluster of these common symptoms, SIBO may be the cause

The most common symptoms of SIBO include:
  • Abdominal pain/discomfort.
  • Bloating and abdominal distention.
  • Diarrhea.
  • Constipation (generally associated with methanogens)
  • Gas and belching.
  • In more severe cases, there may be weight loss and symptoms related to vitamin deficiencies.
