Discover if Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth is a root cause of your illness. This simple, non–invasive, gastrointestinal test detects bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine, often referred to as BOSI or SIBO. Small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) is a common gastrointestinal disorder that often underlies chronic gastrointestinal symptoms of maldigestion and malabsorption, including bloating, gas, diarrhea, irregularity, and abdominal pain.
The Bacterial Overgrowth of the Small Intestine Breath Test (SIBO/BOSI) is appropriate for patients who demonstrate:
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
- Unexplained abdominal symptoms, especially gas and bloating
- The inability to tolerate sweet or starchy foods, fiber, or friendly flora supplements
