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

Are you a professional consultant or a food biologist? The research was done at Monash University in Australia.

It works very well if the diet is used rigorously. I went to a SIBO specialist dietician, referred my my consultant. She told me that most people who say it doesn’t work have found it too difficult to stick to it. I understand that, especially if the patient has a family to cook for, too. You have to be patient and determined not to stray. It takes about three months for real, long term results to appear. Sorry you didn’t have a good experience with it, but I would say find the right dietitian and really go for it.Don’t give up. That’s what the damn bacteria want you to do 😢 I know I’ll have to be on it for good – not ideal, but I feel much better.

That’s great. But the SIBO breath test is pretty accurate. I’m free of it so long as I keep the bacteria in order. It’s a bit like herding cats at times.

The FODMAP diet is required to control SIBO. Find a specialist dietician.

Ah, an NHS consultant works for the National Health Service in Britain. Sorry, I should have explained. It’s a service free to the public – not privatised in any way. You can still ask for the test in the USA but I can’t tell you how it’s financed. Good luck.

A breath test in a clinic – it takes all day. You must ask for one. I got a fantastic NHS consultant to diagnose and treat it.

Ask for the SIBO test – small intestine bacterial overgrowth. The diet is strict, but it works. Ask your consultant about the FODMAP diet, developed by Monash University. It’s not easy but I’ve gone from having a hardly functioning digestive system, always worried about going out, unable to travel, to being able to visit India ( on a very restricted diet!), Russia (Russian food is great for me) and many European countries. Good luck!
