This is Dr. David
symptoms of SIBO include indigestion, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and bloating, gas, loose stools,
and the disease progresses, the body is unable to absorb nutrients from the intestine which can lead to malnutrition and vitamin deficiencies
H Pylori can produce excessive stomach acid and cause gastritis inflammation of the stomach symptoms. the bacteria can produce excessive urea gas in the stomach which can cause bad breath. it can cause no symptoms as well
breath test for urea gas can check for H Pylori
breath test for hydrogen can check for SIBO
