Does SIBO Cause IBS? Guest: Dietitian Alicia Galvin

Are you confused on the question of “Does SIBO cause IBS”?

If so, don’t miss this podcast episode with two GI-Focused Registered Dietitians!

Have you ever wondered: does SIBO Cause IBS?  If you’re confused at all about small-intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) and how it relates to digestive problems, don’t miss this episode with GI-focused, Integrative and Functional Registered Dietitian Alicia Galvin!

Alicia and Erin both specialize in helping our patients recover from IBS.  In this interview, we discuss the statistics of how many people have SIBO (it’s more than half of people who meet IBS criteria)!  We also discuss the way we identify people who may have SIBO in our clinic (the common signs and symptoms).  Alicia also shares the possible causes of SIBO (some will surprise you), how we test for SIBO, and what interventions exist for resolving SIBO.  We also share some details about the dietary approaches that we both take every day in clinic with patients who have SIBO and IBS.

Finally, we share details about the training program we created for Registered Dietitians who want to become proficient at working with SIBO patients (that’s right, we teach other Dietitian’s how to be successful with SIBO)!  You can learn more details about the SIBO Academy at www.siboacademy.com

We hope this interview was helpful if you work with SIBO patients, have a loved one with digestive problems, or if you have them yourself.  You especially need this information if you suffer from gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, reflux, or belching.
