SIBO Breath Test

SIBO or Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth may be one of the causes of your digestive symptoms. It occurs when the bacteria that is normally present in the large intestine, migrates up into the small intestine, producing large amounts of gas.

 

Symptoms of SIBO include excessive gas, indigestion, stomach pain, bloating, cramps, diarrhoea and/or constipation. It can also lead to malnutrition as the bacteria start to use up the body’s nutrients.

 

The SIBO Breath Test measures gasses such as Hydrogen and Methane that are produced when large numbers of these bacteria are present. The test can provide valuable information as to the cause of many digestive issues.

 

If SIBO is contributing to your digestive issues, Heidi can skilfully guide you through a program to eliminate this bacterial overgrowth and ease your symptoms.
