thank you so much!!!!!!!! super interview, things are really moving on now;
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!
Fluoride, as an environmental toxin, causes damage to intestinal mucosa.
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
