The results are essentially the same; whether you have one or the other is just how your doctor inteprets it.
But the SIBO test revealed that I don't have SIBO, but that I have rapid transit.
What you are describing is not a symptom of not getting nutrients and it's probably the case as overitnow's suggested, that you are seeing the binders.
s I wonder if I am getting any nutrients at all.
This sounds like a myth, so I did some digging and it appears that vitamin B2, riboflavin, itself is yellow in color and if you take too much, you may notice your urine is a bit brighter yellow. (Urine's natural yellow color comes from a pigment called urochrome, derived from the breakdown of hemoglobin.)
There is a "peeing yellow" test, from one of the vitamins, although I no longer remember which. In any case, if your urine does not turn a much brighter yellow, you are probably not getting them into your system.
