Do you need to retest for SIBO? Our daughter’s doctor wants to do another round of tests. Which she feels very strongly that she doesn’t want to do a retest. Thank you! Marianne McNally
It can be really beneficial to re-test so that you can see what impact (if any) the initial round of treatment has had on your SIBO, and I know that Dr. Siebecker and Dr. Jacobi recommend practitioners re-test to help the ongoing treatment of SIBO. For instance, if the treatment has not been working, your practitioner can then modify their protocol with the knowledge of what your hydrogen and methane levels are doing.
i am in the US. No one here has your experience or knowledge. I pushed and advocated blindly throug 17 months of acute SIBO. I was in terrific pain with distention and lost 10#. Slowly on the Fodmap and supplements I am improving.
Where can I get specific guidance from you to discuss with my Functional Medicine/Integertive medical practionaner?
The podcast #5 was so amazing and informative. I am concerned that my treatment now will not be directive enough. I have not been given a second Breathe test. I went on my own to Johns Hopkins University to even get the testing.
Thank you and I am so grateful to have found Rebecca Cooms and your site.
I am sorry to hear that you have had to experience 17 months of acute SIBO. It is not something I would wish upon anyone. If you would like to know more about the SIBO Coaching Program, you can drop us an email at [email protected] and we can discuss it with you in more detail.
