SIBO - Small Intestine Bacteria Overgrowth

SIBO - Small Intestine Bacteria Overgrowth

Has anyone else been diagnosed with SIBO? I've rarely seen it mention when researching IBS, but the new doctor I went to yesterday suggested a modified fodmap diet that eliminates additional foods to address it. You can get tested for SIBO but I decided to just start treatment right away without confirmation of the test, because I am so desperate to feel better.

I gained weight after my Dr. put me on amytriptoline. Before that I lost 40 lbs. without trying. This drug doesn’t seem to help so I might go off it. I’m seeing my Dr. tomorrow.

A myIBSteam Member

I saw specialists at the beginning because I was so sick with it in the early 1990s and had to be hospitalized once or twice in 1990 and 199. For a few years I did good and I no longer saw any… read more
