What is SIBO??
Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth or “SIBO” occurs when there is an abnormal increase in the overall bacterial population in the small intestine, particularly types of bacteria not commonly found in that part of the digestive tract. SIBO commonly results when a circumstance — such as surgery, infection, illness, or excess antibiotic use — slows the passage of food and waste products in the digestive tract, creating a breeding ground for bacteria. The excess bacteria can cause symptoms such as loss of appetite, abdominal pain, nausea, bloating, an uncomfortable feeling of fullness after eating, and constipation.
Our clinic is conducting a research study to determine the efficacy of one of two dosing regimens of AEMCOLO (Rifamycin SV MMX), non-absorbable antibiotic in the treatment of Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO).
