SIBO (Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth) #900



SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth) is a condition in which abnormally large numbers of bacteria – the types that are normally found in the large intestine – are present in the small intestine. When not functioning properly, the migrating motor complex (MMC) fails to effectively sweep intestinal contents into the colon during periods of fasting. Once in the small intestine these bacteria proliferate and feed off carbohydrates from food, creating fermentation gases, specifically methane and hydrogen.
It can be a cause of many health problems, including diarrhea, abdominal pain, and protein/fat malabsorption. In recent years, there has been renewed interest in SIBO since it has now been implicated in the pathophysiology of certain diseases previously not classically associated with overgrowth. The World Journal of Gastroenterology claims a definitive association between irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and SIBO, suggesting that SIBO be excluded before diagnosing a patient with IBS.
Common conditions associated with SIBO:
Constipation Malnutrition
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Leaky Gut Syndrome
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Acid Reflux
The Hydrogen/Methane breath test is a reliable and convenient method to help in assessing and classifying dysbiosis and SIBO.

How Is The Test Performed?
1. There is a 24-hour preparation phase before the test is performed.
2. In the first 12 hours, dietary restrictions must be followed. The patient must avoid all grains, fruit in all its forms, sugar in all its forms, dairy in all its forms, vegetables, nuts and seeds, alcohol and beans. Refer to the test kit instructions for permitted foods.
3. The last 12 hours is a fasting period. Only water can be consumed.

Can Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth be Treated?

Yes. Once bacterial overgrowth has been diagnosed, your health practitioner can use an appropriate antibiotics to eradicate the bacteria that are causing the uncomfortable symptoms. There can be natural remedy options too, i.e. herbs, supplements that are known to help SIBO.

How The SIBO Breath Testing Program Works:

The test is performed in the convenience of your own home, and the breath samples are returned to BioHealth Laboratory in the postage paid box.

This Amino Acids Urine profile is a complete amino acid assessment evaluating essential (obtained through the diet) and non-essential (produced within the body) amino acids. This test can be suggestive of amino acid imbalances, or the abnormal loss of certain amino acids from the body than can lead to deficiencies. Amino acid imbalances are known to create neurotransmitter problems which can lead to attention and focusing issues, mood problems, sleep issues and more. This test is useful for anyone looking to assess amino acid levels. Doctors often use this test for people with mental health disorder such as depression and anxiety, as well as states of fatigue, poor immune function, and other chronic illnesses.
