Jun 24, 2017 · Small Intestine Bacteria Overgrowth (SIBO) in Digestive Health

CAN ANYONE TELL ME “WHAT TO EAT???” I am so tied of hearing “eat this, no don’t, eat that, OH no that bad for you”…..no one seems to know what diet to follow. The FODMAP diet is a joke!! Half the stuff on there I can eat due to my re-flux and the other half is horrible! I know to avoid sugar (SIBO) and acid foods (re-flux), so what’s left?? I am going to try the gluten free for now UNLESS someone clues me in on another way to go….so frustrated!!!

“Ask a doctor, pharmacist, or other healthcare provider if it is safe for you to use this product if you have:

I am lactose intolerant.

Talking about VSL#3, is that the actual name or kind of probiotic? My gastro’s PA said Align was the best, but I am not sure about that. She had no proof. I have had two bouts of SIBO since January. EVERYTHING I eat seems to either cause gas, upset stomach, bloating or with luck sometimes I get it right and nothing happens. I am “trying” to follow the FODMAP diet, but with my reflux, there is so much I can’t eat on the list. I am so tired of this whole thing. I feel like my doctors just don’t really care to help me. Please list what VSL#3 are and what names they are sold as. Thanks!

Here is the name of the lab that did my test, maybe they can guide you: Commonwealth Laboratories, LLC. They are located in Belfast, ME 04915-4033. Here is a number listed on my “billing”, but they might also be able to help: 978-599-1380. I would try that number and ask for customer service. I have to warn you, without insurance, my bill would have been $6,540.80. I ended up paying 108.79. We lost our insurance two months back and now we are trying to get another company. My gastro doctor had the kit in his office, so I am not sure how much help I can give you.

ANYTHING is worth trying at this point. I am on day 12 of being drained and dizzy. I believe my vitamins are totally depleted. The pro-bio I am trying to really harsh (small white tablets that are hard to swallow). I am on the 14 day challenge with Activia, but soon want to start maintenance tablets. Thanks for sharing. BTW, Herb.com had a better deal.

Thanks, I will have to go by Target and get it. Do you happen to know the cost?

My gastro put me on the FODMAP diet, however, I can’t swear by it. I am still having issues after meds, so anyone on here might have a different one to try.
