Part 2: SIBO
Part 2: SIBO
Small intestine bacterial overgrowth, or SIBO for short, is a phenomenon that has gained increasing attention over the years. A healthy small intestine normally contains fairly low numbers of gut bacteria, much lower than the more densely populated colon. However, for several reasons those numbers can rise which may in turn cause symptoms ? both systemically and locally in the gut. To highlight the clinical importance of SIBO and get you familiar with testing and treatment for bacterial overgrowth, we welcome you to this half day training session on 26th November 2021.
