Re: Probiotics May Make SIBO Worse

It is possible oral pharmaceutical probiotics cause problems in the small bowel but since them only offer temporary colonization, the problem will disapear by itself once you stop the intake. There is a big controversy about the role of probiotics to treat SIBO. I have written in this forum many times that some MDs think SIBO is a pathogenic overgrowth in the small bowel, and another group believes SIBO is an overgrowth in numbers not matter what kind of bacterias. Anyway, I think the best thing is to leave the body alone to find its balance and gives it good nutrition. I don't plan on taking more oral Probiotics. I have always thought Prebiotics are better, specially Lactulose. If I have to take Antibiotics in the future my own feces will be my probiotics when I finish the treatment.
