Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) is excessive bacteria in the small intestine. It can cause non-gastrointestinal symptoms and gastrointestinal symptoms similar to IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) symptoms. Both SIBO and IBS are closely linked.
The main problems of SIBO are:
Problems with normal gut digestion and absorption of important nutrients
Deficiencies of vitamins A & D and fatty stools
Bloating, abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhoea or both (the symptoms of IBS). Excess gas can also cause flatulence.
Damage to the intestinal lining increasing risk of food intolerances and food allergies. It can also lead onto leaky gut syndrome
Systemic problems such as Chronic Fatigue
Neurological and cognitive symptoms if acids secreted in large amounts into the blood.
This test measures levels of hydrogen and methane which are produced by bacteria in your gut after ingesting different sugars. The levels of hydrogen and methane will be measured from your exhaled breath and analysed to determine whether your gut is able to process different sugars appropriately.
The hydrogen and methane breath test is now a well established non-invasive test for assessing malabsorption of sugars. Currently, it is also the ‘Gold Standard’ test.
The dietitian will discuss your options for treatment with you if the test comes back positive. The main treatment options are:
Specific Dietary change
Carbohydrate Malabsorption Testing
Malabsorption is the inability to absorb important nutrients, including proteins, fats and vitamins. If your bowel can’t absorb these nutrients you may suffer from symptoms such as diarrhoea, abdominal pain, bloating and flatulence. This can cause malnutrition in the longer term.
In our clinic we can test you for fructose and lactose malabsorption.
The most reliable way is the widely used and well validated breath test. An intolerance is diagnosed according to the symptoms which arise after the test.
The dietitian will discuss your options, help you better understand the intolerance and create a personalised plan to help you manage symptoms through diet and healthy living.
