Small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) is a condition in which bacterial carbohydrate fermentation in the proximal gut causes measurable rises in breath hydrogen, methane, and/or hydrogen sulfide.   Knowing which gas is dominant is important as this helps to guide SIBO treatment. Additionally, understanding patterns of gas rises over 3 hours can provide key insights into microbial activity.

In this presentation, Dr Jacobi will review key elements on breath test interpretation as it relates to SIBO as well as common patterns of treatment response. Test preparation do's and don'ts to increase accuracy of test results as well as common causes of SIBO will also be covered
