Is SIBO Driving Your IBS and Weight Gain?

Is SIBO Driving Your IBS and Weight Gain?

April 8, 2021

Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, or SIBO, is a relatively common condition, and is believed by many experts to be one of the most common causes of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). It has also been shown to contribute to weight gain. There are many things that can contribute to the development of SIBO such as poor digestion, chronic constipation, imbalanced gut bacteria, low stomach acid, poor diet, etc. Fortunately, there are some things you can do to help support your gut such as certain supplements, different types of probiotics, having regular bowel movements, and several other things. In this week’s show, we’ll discuss if SIBO could be driving your IBS and weight gain, and some things you can do to help support your gut health.
