I’ve included other useful FODMAP info here, including links to learning more about SIBO.
This video is a presentation by Professor Peter Gibson on the topic “Beating the Bloat: the FODMAP Diet & IBS” at the Central Clinical School public lecture. Professor Gibson is Head of the Gastroenterology Department in the Central Clinical and Editor of the American Journal of Gastroenterology. He has long-standing career in active clinical and research interest in inflammatory bowel disease, celiac disease and functional gastrointestinal disorders like irritable bowel syndrome.
Below are some links to info and organizations that may be helpful. I will update these as I find additional resources.
SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth) Resource
If you would like to get a Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) test done, you can look for a GI physician in your area who offers the hydrogen breath test. A few doctors can conduct the tests in-office with a special machine (usually a 4-6 week waiting list), while others will provide you with an at-home kit. I’ve had both types done and been tested positive. I do prefer the in-office tests as they seem more sensitive to detecting lower levels of SIBO.
Below are some sites which can be good starting points for finding a dietitian specializing in FODMAPs. Your GI physician might be able to make referrals as well.
