Small Intestine Bacteria Overgrowth (SIBO)

Posted by jacque6977 @jacque6977, Feb 22, 2017

My wife, after years of suffering from debilitating nausea and fatigue, has finally been diagnosed with SIBO as confirmed by a hydrogen breath test. It is estimated the bacteria has had at least two years to grow and may be well established. She has started on Xifaxan, at $35 per pill, but it is estimated that elimination of the SIBO may take up to six months. Her day now starts with her waking up with nausea and when she has a cup of tea and toast in the morning she gets sick within fifteen minutes thereafter. Her sickness is accompanied by violent belching, and at times she regurgitates liquid vile. The only drug she has for nausea is Zofran which does nothing for her. Are there any other SIBO sufferers that are experiencing the same symptoms, and what are you taking to reduce the nausea?

I thought I would share this link for all of the Sibo-C people…. has to do with depression and constipation….. https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/325129.php

Yes, I like this scientific approach. The broad spectrum, long term, gold standard testing is important in coming to any generalised conclusion.

Hi, I was just diagnosed with this, there is a thread, but hasn't been active since 2017, was just wondering if anyone else out there has this problem. The doctor I just saw here at Mayo doesn't seem to think much of it, I was excited to be referred to a dietician, and couldn't believe she never heard of it, I thought she was going to help me the the diet that seems to be indicated for this problem. Has anyone had any luck with this at Mayo? Is there anyone here knowledgeable about this problem?

Hi @elle1233,

You may notice that I moved your message and combined it with this existing discussion. Although it was started by @jacque6977 in 2017, many Connect members have joined the conversation since then, and are actively talking about SIBO – the last message was posted by @haighsue, in May.

Oh, OK. Well, hopefully someone will see it then. This is my first day here, so I'm just getting the hang of it. May is quite a while ago, and it looked like there really wasn't much activity before that, so I thought maybe I'd start a new one, hoping maybe there'd be some current people with some info.

My wife is a two time breast cancer survivor and while going through chemo, nothing was helping her nausea, not one of the medicines prescribed. Her brother suggested letting her try Pot. He sent it to the house and when she finally got up the nerve to try it, I took the rest of our family to run errands. When we came home she was up and about and wanting to try and eat something, this in moderation got her through both battles. I wish there was real medicines from this resource like what has been developed from other plants, but there not.

THC releaves , I prefer to use the THC tablets, 2.5mg, from the Dispensary. i used street pot, when I had Breast Cancer & it saved my life 14 years ago🌹. I have Gastroparsis now & am Nauseas all the time, I use 1 THC tablet in the morning, & one before dinner. I have been taking them for 6 months now, & with correct diet I’m almost completely nausea Free.
Not sure what State you live in, but I would look into it . Good Luck & God Bless you all 🤗☘️
