Yes I've had this test but I don't believe I had a high base count to start off. Do you have any symptoms of slow stomach emptying (that could give results as though you hadn't been fasting properly)?
Actually I have a tortuous colon and one doctor things I have colonic inertia. Does this mean the results will not be right? The nurse said it did peak some after I took the sugary drink they give you.
No, those conditions wouldn't affect this.
my test results are in and I do have SIBO.. they are going to try to put me on Rifaximin if my insurance will cover it. Have you taken this?? Did it help. I am reading I should take a stronger probiotic while I am on it.
I believe I was on it at one point, but it wasn't for SIBO. When I had SIBO, I took Flagyl. Yes, it would be a good idea to take a probiotic to help. I hope this clears up soon!
I have been on it for 1 week.
Have you seen any changes in your symptoms yet?
Not really... he did tell me my methane was very high in my tests. I feel the same way I did when my diet changed..
