SIBO: Underlying Causes and Treatment Strategies
Join Dr Steven Sandberg-Lewis as he presents at the 2017 BioCeuticals Research Symposium
Dr Sandberg-Lewis discusses the mechanisms behind abdominal adhesions, recurrent small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) and develops a working understanding of blind loops, mural thickening and bowel obstruction as risk factors for SIBO.
He reviews the relationships between gastric acid, pancreatic enzymes and bile salts as protective factors in the prevention of SIBO and its impact on iron deficiency, malabsorption and anaemia.
Dr Sandberg-Lewis discusses the suitability of vegetarians and vegans diets versus those of meat eaters along with other dietary and therapeutic strategies to improve the function of the migrating motor complex in SIBO.
Furthermore, Dr Sandberg-Lewis discusses the key concepts for choosing effective antimicrobials based on lactulose breath testing analysis, effective symptomatic relief measures for diarrhoea and constipation that does not increase the risk of bacteria
