its estimated 85% of people with IBS have SIBO, and MANY people with Crohns (about 50%) also have SIBO. www.siboinfo.com They have that in common.

^^.Tru dat! We just switched GI's and our new GI told us the same thing and tells us that molder daughter has probably had SIBO all this time that the old GI was telling us IBS!

So hard when all their symptoms are the same eh?

and SIBO is complicated to treat. I finished 2 rounds (one xifaxan, one herbal) and using pro-kinetics (LDN and Iberogast) but now believe it is coming back. Getting tested again soon. Next step, physical therapist using Wurn technique. Consult next week. Good luck and make sure to read ALL of the SIBO info on the website. There is also a good FB group, SIBO SOS II. Healing IS possible! The SIBO could have caused the Crohn's or vice versa, but treating mine made me much better. hugs
