  1. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    I've been dependent on glycerol suppositories for 2 years and although it's not an ideal situation it doesn't bother me because I feel so in control and better than I had done in years. I can even administer the thing while standing up in a public lavatory, and it only takes a couple of minutes...
  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...

    Hello everyone, I have been plagued with stomach problems ever since 3 rounds of very strong and nasty antibiotics for an infection in the uterus. I finally found out about SIBO and decided to get tested. Well I just got my results and I produced a whopping 51ppm within an hour! Yet my doctor...
  4. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    Hi, Last 2yrs I have had daily type1 constipation. Hard dry rocks, not nice. I tried Movicol (polyethelene glycol?) and after a week it helped but gave me horrible bloating and gut pains. For years I have heard of Lactulose and it seems to have a bad rep with IBS so I avoided! Well, I see a...
  5. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    I have had IBS for about 15 years now. I have IBS-C which means I don't go at all for a week to 10 days and then when I do go I pass very large, painful BM's followed by overflow which is basically diarrhea and leakage for the following 24 hours (horrible). I also suffer from episodic severe...
  6. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    I've noticed that whenever I take probiotics, lactulose just doesnt work as well for me. It used to work like a charm, and it was part of my daily routine, but I also felt terrible (extremely lethargic) because I had so little gut bacteria going on. I noticed that when I ate yogurt, my mood...
  7. 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!
  8. GI-related Diagnostic Tests
    Last Friday I did the hydrogen breath test to see if I might have SIBO. It involved drinking a solution of lactulose. I felt fine for 24 hours, then I had awful diarrhea and cramping all of Saturday afternoon. Since then my gut has been crampy and sore, and I haven't had a bowel movement. Could...
