Commonly referred to as SIBO, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth is characterised by an increased number of microbes invading the small intestine. The small intestine is much more sensitive than the large intestine and so it doesn’t fare well when having to accommodate these extra microbial guests (and their fermenting feasts). As a consequence, they can interfere with the small intestine’s normal functioning, causing IBS-like symptoms, such as tummy pain, bloating, excess flatulence and diarrhoea.

Our dietitians can help diagnose SIBO with breath tests and support you through the diet and lifestyle management pathways.
