A Revolution in the Diagnosis and Treatment of GI Disorders, Part 1
April 4, 2019
SIBO—small intestine bacterial overgrowth—is a concept that has revolutionized our diagnosis and treatment of common GI disorders, especially IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). Gary Stapleton, founder and director of Aerodiagnostic Labs, is a leading authority on the performance and interpretation of testing for SIBO. What is SIBO? Who might suspect they have it? SIBO manifestations go way beyond just gastrointestinal symptoms like diarrhea, cramps, bloating and constipation; SIBO often is an underlying cause of autoimmune disorders and even brain fog, depression, anxiety and fatigue. Why test? What’s the principal behind breath testing? How does detection of various gases guide therapeutic decisions and increase treatment success? Are there alternatives to drugs for treatment of SIBO? What can go wrong with breath testing? Improper patient prepping, imprecise collection, poorly calibrated testing machinery, and inexperienced interpretation can confuse the diagnosis. Stapleton outlines the extraordinary steps Aerodiagnostics takes to assure quality control. Breath testing can also be used to pinpoint diagnoses of lactose, fructose or sucrose intolerance.
