  • IBS is the common gastro-intestinal diagnosis and affects 20% of Canadians

 

  • Symptoms include: gas, bloating, altered bowel movements, pain, diarrhea and/or constipation

 

  • But did you know that symptoms of IBS are very similar to those experienced by individuals with small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO)

 

  • In fact, studies show that up to 50% of patients who eradicated bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine no longer met the Rome criteria for IBS!

 

  • SIBO is diagnosed by a specialized breath test called a lactulose or glucose breath test.  If you’ve been diagnosed with IBS or experiencing symptoms related to it – ask your Naturopathic Doctor if SIBO testing is right for you
