What is SIBO?

 In Blog

SIBO is Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth.  The small intestine is supposed to be scarcely populated with bacteria in comparison to the large intestine, so when there is a larger amount of bacteria in the small intestine, we have SIBO.

Symptoms of SIBO include:

  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Alternating diarrhea and constipation
  • Bloating/ Abdominal distention
  • Gas/Belching
  • Abdominal pain/discomfort
  • Fatigue
  • And more…

SIBO is diagnosed via a breath test which you can do in the comfort of your own home.  SIBO can be tricky to treat due to the variety of types of SIBO so choose an expert to help you.  If you think you may have SIBO contact Arizona Natural Medicine, I would love to work with you.
