The SIBO Breath Test is an easy to perform test which identifies bacteria overgrowth in the small intestine.
Symptoms caused by SIBO include
- Stomach cramps,
- Upper abdominal pain,
- Reflux and excessive wind.
Because of the poor absorption caused by SIBO, other symptoms and health conditions can occur including fatigue, skin problems, fibromyalgia and even endometriosis.
Often those suffering from SIBO have been given a diagnosis of IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and never really sort their digestive problems out.
Risk factors for SIBO include:
Bouts of tonsillitis or tonsil removal, Apendix removal, history of food poisoning, regular ingestion of sugar or alcohol and use of antibiotics.
