Inflammatory Bowel Disease or IBD groups together two conditions: Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis.

Crohn’s Disease

Sufferers of Crohn’s disease experience the inflammation of the lining of any part of the digestive tract. Typically, it affects a part of the small intestine just before the colon.

Ulcerative Colitis

Ulcerative colitis, on the other hand, occurs in the colon and the rectum, causing long-lasting inflammation and ulcers.

What is SIBO?

SIBO or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth is a condition that results in excess bacteria in the small intestine.

Common SIBO Symptoms

As with other gastrointestinal conditions, the SIBO symptoms can be as follows:

  • bloating
  • cramping
  • abdominal pain, often after eating
  • gas
  • indigestion
  • diarrhea
  • constipation
  • feeling full

Although SIBO isn’t fully understood, it is believed to be associated with other digestive health conditions. A SIBO breath test may be used to diagnose SIBO.


Because many people find some form of relief after the introduction of a SIBO diet plan or meal plan, seeking the guidance of a nutritionist or dietitian could be an important course of action.

In conjunction with your doctor, digestion help is certainly possible. Learn more about SIBO.
