How can IBS related to SIBO be managed?

Hi doctor,

I realize I have IBS symptoms and they seem to be related to SIBO. I need your advice on how to treat it effectively. Here are some symptoms and test results.

1. Leaky gut or intestinal permeability with multiple food intolerances.

2. Seems to have hydrogen sulfide based SIBO, severe farting with a foul smell of eating foods like cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, high protein foods. I may have an overgrowth of sulfate-reducing bacteria. Rifaximin seems to help with SIBO but it is temporary.

3. I have to eat rice as I cannot eat gluten or wheat.

Some experts on SIBO say that MMC or vagal nerve dysfunction is the root cause of SIBO. I have heard that a lot of patients get better when they increase gut motility. So I wanted to ask if taking prokinetic or cholinergic support will help SIBO from recurring.

Please guide.

Can a person with GERD get diarrhea and burps?

Hello doctor,

My doctor, a long time ago, said that I have GERD. It is an acid reflux condition. I get really disgusting burps that taste like rotten eggs and I get diarrhea. That will go on for about three hours and then I throw up and I feel fine. I take acid reducers but I still end up getting it. I have also tried eating less and drinking more water instead of tea and coke. Can you tell me anything that I can do?

What could be wrong if a person has acidity and gas problems with any food?

Hello doctor,

I am a 24-year-old female, and I have gas and acidity problems. Anything I eat causes a lot of gas. It worsens when I travel, it becomes hard to pass the stools, and when it does, it smells awful even if I eat or do not eat something. Kindly suggest.
