Jun 13, 2017 · Small Intestine Bacteria Overgrowth (SIBO) in Digestive Health

It was $27-$28 for 30 tablets. The maintenance dosage is 1 tablet/day. Intensive treatment is up to 3 tablets/day. I started with one, and that seems to work for me. Hope it brings you some relief.

What probiotic are you taking? I was taking Align, as recommended by my Mayo gastro doctor, but begin having some signs of bacteria overgrowth again. I switched probiotics to Hyperbiotics Pro-15 with 15 billion CFU-15 strains (bought it at Target). I felt better one day later, and have had no more symptoms since I’ve been taking it.

Sure. Dr. Andres J. Acosta Cardenas.

Yes, I was at the Mayo in Rochester, MN. I was treated by Dr. Andres J. Acosta Cardenas. I hope you can get the correct diagnosis and treatment plan.

No, I have not heard of Iberogast. I favor natural treatments whenever possible. I would’ve explored my options if my life hadn’t been at risk. I’m going to check it out for future reference though.

Phenegran, or Promethazine, is used for nausea. It’s the best option in my opinion, the only one that worked for me.

After leaving the Mayo in November, I went through a round of Diflucan, Flagyl, and Cipro. That’s it! The GI doctor at the Mayo said that was all I needed to do, and then take a daily probiotic. He strongly recommended Align, so that’s what I take. I guess the bacteria is gone? I sure feel like it is, at least for now. I no longer have excessive gas, bloating, stomach pain, indigestion, diarrhea, vomiting, etc. Of course, SIBO wasn’t my sole diagnosis, so some of my symptoms could’ve been related to other issues. Anyway for now I feel great. If at any point I have recurring symptoms, I was told to contact my Mayo GI doctor, and he’d reassess my situation.

Mar 23, 2017 · Small Intestine Bacteria Overgrowth (SIBO) in Digestive Health

I was diagnosed with SIBO, EPI, and small bowel damage (partly caused by the bacteria, and partly caused by a birth defect). I suffered with chronic diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and weakness for over 20 years. I had multiple endoscopies, colonoscopies, blood tests, MRI’s, CT scans, fecal analysis, allergy testing, and so on. My last GI doctor referred me to the Mayo Clinic because he would not accept that even though every test was “normal”, there was something very wrong. The GI doctor at the Mayo did an endoscopy at my first appointment, and found everything that he needed to from that. Why no one else could find the source of my problems from the past endoscopies I’d had is baffling.
