I’m glad you found it helpful. I’m usually way behind, by the time I find something it’s old news. I was especially interested in knowing that hydrogen SIBO is dominant in lbs-D and methane in ibs-C.thank you so much!!!!!!!! super interview, things are really moving on now;
I take that information with a grain of salt. Unfortunately, all these doctors have interests to protect, and are going to promote their methods as the “best”. Do what’s best for you.yes there have been some deaths from FMT
I was recently researching a lab (Diagnostic Solutions) that I sent away to for testing. I found a very damning studying on pub med concerning this lab and their process. At the end of the report, I find that the study was funded by Doctors Data, a competitor lab. Bit of a conflicting interest!
This is a tough one. I’ve installed a RO system but the water is highly acidic and I don’t do well drinking it. I even tried adding a mineral cartridge that was of no help. Big waste of time and money. So I’ve had to continue on bottled water. Not good but the lesser of evils.Fluoride, as an environmental toxin, causes damage to intestinal mucosa.
I believe these could be particularly dangerous to those like us with overgrowth.Probiotics do not work for all of us.
I did a hydrogen test a couple years ago that was below the level (13/20). As my symptoms have shifted from predominantly IBS-D towards C, I suspect methane SIBO as well.But it is equally possible to generate both Hydrogen and Methane producing species together
I had along discussion with the gastrologist, and he feels my SIBO may be difficult to detect through testing, and we would be better off to treat rather than test. He has set me up with a two week supply of xifaxan.
So I’m at a crossroads...
- wait for the stool testing to be completed, see what that reveals. But stool testing for SIBO is of limited value
- start the xifaxan and hope for the best
- try and get the gastro to add neomycin to the xifaxan for the methane
