Through your generous donations I have been able to order my first test kit!
SIBO stands for small intestine bacterial overgrowth and causes symptoms such as bloating, diarrhoea, malnutrition, joint pain, fatigue and constipation. I tend to avoid talking about my “toilet symptoms” because I’ve suffered with chronic bloating/constipation/diarrhoea for as long as I can remember. This was improved by taking out gluten from my diet but still I suffer a lot of “toilet issues”.
SIBO is deeply connected to many other chronic illnesses that I potentially have and explains a small chunk of my health issues, but definitely not all.
SIBO is definitely treatable and sometimes it is curable too! However, treatment/cure requires a very very strict diet and a very long list of “do not eat” foods plus long-term antibiotic treatments.
Thank you for helping me afford this, I will keep you all updated on how I am using your generous donations!
