Jan 3, 2018 · Small Intestine Bacteria Overgrowth (SIBO) in Digestive Health

Well, after a Christmas where I was feeling amazing and was starving for some “good” food (the kind that is not SIBO friendly) I indulged a tiny bit for a week. I started feeling the familiar slight stabbing pain in my upper gut and I panicked. I am strict, strict, strict right now holding my breath that I didn’t bring it all back again. UGH!! On the bright side (if there is one!) my insurance company just approved a third round of Xifamin today. I will hold on to it until I know for sure it’s all back again. So frustrating!! I might go down and get another breath test just to be on the safe side to see if it’s back for sure, and also to confirm if I really can tell that it’s back from my own intuition!

Hi SweetMaize, My hydrogen breath test levels never peak until 90+ minutes, but luckily my GI doctor has figured out that’s how my body works (based on results of my gastric emptying scan). So, in my case, and possibly yours, it was diagnosed “Late Positive SIBO”. If you were given Xyfaxin and your symptoms improved significantly, that could be your answer.
