Permanent SIBO due to removal of ileocecal valve

For me the diet has been key after antibiotics. No complex carbs that ferment and stay in the gut for the bad bacteria to feed on. I eat protein, fruits and vegetables. Because I lost so much weight, my nutritionist has me taking supplemental enteral shakes (enzymes)which my body absorbs very quickly before the bad bacteria can get a hold of it. It is a very slow healing process. I think diet is a key component of maintaining remission if we can call it that.

Speaking of probiotics, the only ones I can tolerate are Florastor and Align. All the expensive potent ones immediately give me diarrhea.

Can you give me the name of the supplement you drink? I am good to stay at 99 lbs since my surgery. Very hard to get all the protein I need because meats are so hard to digest.

Hi, I am just finding all of this info. Did you have a surgery too or do you only have SIBO (at the time of your post)? I'm hopeful I am finally on the right track in my research

Thanks!
