Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth
I have included this disorder primarily because it is frequently undiagnosed or not even recognized as a disorder by some gastroenterologist.
The Mayo Clinic defines SIBO as an overgrowth of bacteria or the presence of specific uncommon strains of bacteria within the small intestine. This condition is more commonly found within the population of individuals who also exhibit IBS (constipation or diarrhea).
An improper diagnosis or no diagnosis at all of SIBO results in symptoms that may include:
Loss of appetite
Heartburn or reflex
Abdominal pain At Total Body Wellness Life Enhancement Center, Dr. Rudack recognizes and can properly test for this disorder, which allows for the proper treatment of the root causes.
