Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)

Most of your gut bacteria should live in your large intestine and colon. When these bacteria colonize the small intestine, SIBO occurs. Additionally, SIBO can be caused by an overgrowth of bacteria that normally live in the small intestine itself. The excess bacteria feed off the undigested food in your small intestine, particularly sugar, starches, and alcohol. This causes these carbohydrates to ferment, producing gas. The result is belching, flatulence, and severe bloating. However, it’s not just digestive issues. SIBO can lead to a wide array of issues from skin rashes and vitamin deficiencies to thyroid and other autoimmune disorders.
