First off, I am sorry if I am posting in the wrong section. The only place I saw anything about SIBO, was here. I've posted on the board before, but haven't in awhile. I am currently lost and unsure of what to do. I was diagnosed with IBS at age 14, due to daily diarrhea. Sometimes increasing fiber would work, but that was my only recommendation that only helped sometimes. Around the age of 20, I thought I grew out of it, until I was slammed daily with bloating and gas. I still get diarrhea at least once a week, but my main problem is the gas and bloating. I mentioned to my doctor to try the SIBO test, after reading about it online. Bingo. She put me on an antibiotic for a week or so. And it seemed to maybe help but once I was off, back to the same old same old. When I stick to a diet of rice, some veggies, some fruit and meat, I'm fine. When I eat like a normal human being, all of the sudden the symptoms come back. I don't see that gastro anymore, as I have different insurance, however she really didn't know how to help me anyway. I don't know what to do. I can have my regular doctor prescribe antibiotics, but he doesn't know anything about it either. While on antibiotics, should one take probiotics too? or once the antibiotics are done? What diet should one stick to while on antibiotics? I'm confused and not having a doctors help is unsettling. Does anyone know of any SIBO smart doctors in New York? I live on long island.
