I have been diagnosed with SIBO, and have both methane and hydrogen.  Thankfully I do not have diarrhea, but do have some difficulty during bowel movement and tend to be on the constipated side.  I would like to know if anyone has tried Ensure or Boost for weight gain?  I am also lactose intolerant.  I have lost so much weight and need help.

so sorry for all your problems.


i'm trying to gain weight . and i also am lactose intolerant.  i drink three boosts a day. i  use the boost glucose control because it doesn't have as much sugar in it as the regular boost does. 


good luck.

these are just my own thoughts. for expert medical advice please contact a health care professional.

I also had SIBO a few years back but thankfuly I don't have it anymore. I'm underweight and drink Ensure in regular intervals-my doctor recommended it to me and you must have a prescription for it in my country. They don't sell it over the counter so I am limited in quantity.
I did not gain weight yet but I stopped loosing it so I consider it a success. ..also lactose intolerant..
