What is Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)?

Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) is a condition where both aerobic and anaerobic bacteria overgrow in the small intestine. Typically, the small intestine contains low levels of bacteria, unlike the large intestine which harbors a diverse and large ecosystem of microbes. Our gut microbes play a large role in health and disease. Important positive functions of microbes include degrading carbohydrates for fuel, creating vitamins for good health and maintaining normal function of our immune system.

Symptoms of SIBO mimic those found in Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) including: bloating, abdominal distention, gas, pain, fullness after eating, and alteration of bowel habit (constipation, diarrhea or alternating).

A Registered Dietitian can help SIBO patients optimize their digestion and improve their nutritional status. Customizing a diet and adopting strategies to prevent recurrence make the dietary approach to SIBO symptoms far more successful.
