SIBO Breath Test

Aloha Natural Medicine offers the SIBO Breath Test by Aerodiagnostics to determine if Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) is a contributing factor to a patient's digestive health. SIBO occurs when there are excess bacteria in the small intestine. Symptoms of SIBO may include:

  • Increased gas in the intestine

  • Abdominal bloating

  • Abdominal pain

  • Constipation

  • Diarrhea

  • Belching

  • Floating stool

  • Undigested food in stool

  • Other IBS symptoms

SIBO can cause nutrient deficiencies such as iron and B12, poor fat absorption, food allergies and food sensitivities, chronic fatigue, body pain, neurological and cognitive symptoms. SIBO is commonly considered when a patient experiences the following:

  • Dramatic, temporary improvement in IBS symptoms with antibiotics

  • Worsening of IBS symptoms with ingesting probiotic supplements that contain prebiotics

  • Constipation with increasing fiber consumption in the diet

  • Chronic low ferritin levels with no other cause
