SIBO,anyone?

Today I'm blogging for help! On Tuesday,I had the hydrogen breath test. The 4 hour test that was the last in this GI workup series. For anyone who doesn't know-you go into the office, and drink this solution and about every 20 minutes you blow into this bag while a nurse collects the air that you're blowing. I didn't really do too much research on the test-but now I'm wishing that I had.

Anyways,I got the call from my doctor today saying I have SIBO-Small Intestinal Bacteria Overgrowth. For once, the doctor has stumped me! I have no idea what to expect, what to do, or anything really. The doctor put me on rifamixin 500 mg three times daily and said we will "monitor our progress".

So,anyone else with this SIBO? I would love to hear inputs from any bloggers out there, with CF or not!

So here are some simple tops to look for when picking a diet.
