Has anyone on here had experience of the nhs testing for and/or treating SIBO?
I was diagnosed with Crohns in the terminal ileum around a year a go. Inflammation was under control having used budesonide for a bit and then Pentasa for 7-8 months.
I've still struggled with overall health, fatigue, intestinal cramps/pain/big headaches.
Recently I've been seeing a nutrionist and had a GI-MAP test which looks for pathogens, parasites, bacterial make-up, inflammation etc.
My calprotectin levels are back up to almost my initial untreated levels so that's one thing to talk to Gastroenterologist about.
Secondly, the results are also pointing to a likely case of SIBO, however there's a separate test to show for sure. I'm seeing my Gastroenterologist in a few weeks and I'm concerned he won't recognise SIBO as something real, not Willie diagnosis the short term medication shown to address it.
All experiences and thoughts would really help fore arm me!
