SIBO Challenges: Key Insights with GI-MAP
Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) has received a lot of attention in recent years as a possible cause of common GI symptoms such as excessive gas, bloating, abdominal pain, constipation and/or diarrhea.
In addition to SIBO, a wide range of other factors may cause similar symptoms, posing significant challenges for clinicians in determining the true cause(s) of symptoms, as well as effective treatment approaches. This situation may contribute to the relatively high rate of inadequate patient responses to SIBO treatments.
In this presentation, Dr. Fabian discusses how GI-MAP can provide clinicians with critical insights that can help identify specific imbalances that may underlie common GI symptoms that are often attributed to SIBO.
