IBS and SIBO are common gastrointestinal conditions that often share symptoms, overlap, and can coexist. In fact, up to 80% of patients with IBS may also have SIBO. Recognizing this synergy between the two conditions is essential for effective treatment planning.
Post-infectious IBS is IBS caused by food poisoning. 1 in 9 patients who experience food poisoning will develop IBS as a result. Traditionally, IBS was an exclusionary diagnosis, meaning other diseases had to be ruled out in order to diagnose IBS; however, an antibody blood test is an alternative to diagnose IBS more accurately.
