    Hi there, I am currently trying to rule out SIBO in my quest for figuring out what is up with my gut health. I have just spent a THIRD day trying to do the proper eating prep for the SIBO (hydrogen breath) test in the morning. I have already tried this twice before and both times screwed...
  2. GI-related Diagnostic Tests
    Hey everyone, So German doctors really don't like diagnosing SIBO. I've now seen 7 gastroenterologists none of whome will diagnose SIBO. I paid privately to get my own lactulose test to try to diagnose distal SIBO (the pain and problems are near my ileocecal valve). Here is my test overlaid...
  3. Diarrhea Prescription Medications
    So I have been reading a lot of medical reports from NCBI. And I have been trying to figure why at such a young age, I have been sick for so long.

  8. General Discussion
    Hello, I am new to the forum but have had symptoms of IBS/SIBO for over 10 years. I was wondering if anyone has had the experience of being diagnosed and/or treated for SIBO in Wales and whether the Wales NHS covers procedures and tests, such as lactulose-based breath testing. Thanks!
  9. Diet
    I was dxed with IBS as a teenager, but was told by the doctor there was nothing he could do. He suggested I eat more fiber, which made things worse. I've had low level digestive issues, with some flares, throughout my adult life. I've had other health problems-significantly thyroid cancer...
