The one thing that is consistent with SIBO is that no two people are the same when it comes to their symptoms. Some people barely feel anything while others are bedridden and unable to work. However, there are a handful of symptoms that may be experienced if you have SIBO. You can have one, some, or all of the symptoms below.
Typical SIBO Symptoms
Symptoms also change over time, so it is important to remember that just because you feel awful today, doesn't mean you will feel awful for the rest of eternity.
Abdominal pain and/or cramping
Alternating constipation and diarrhoea
Food intolerances and sensitivities
Belching and/or flatulence
Heartburn / acid reflux
Chronic digestive complaints
Depression and/or anxiety
Respiratory symptoms, such as asthma
Skin issues such as itchy skin, hives, rashes, eczema, psoriasis, acne
Vitamin and mineral deficiencies, especially Vitamin B12 and iron
Here are two of my most popular episodes on The Healthy Gut Podcast where I interview leading SIBO doctors about what SIBO actually is. My fans regularly tell me how much my podcasts have taught them about SIBO and gut health. I guarantee they'll help you too.
