Blind loop syndrome is a disease condition, where normal bacterias or microbes of small intestine start growing in such an uncontrolled manner that it goes in abundance and causes significan dearrangements in our physiological syatem, and thus also called as bacterial overgrowth syndrome.
It is mainly characterized by abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea, loss of appetitie and unintentional weight loss. These are common symptoms associated with many diseases but in case problem persists for a longer time then you must see a doctor.
The fundamental process causing all diarrheal diseases is incomplete absorption of water from intestinal luminal contents. Water itself is not actively transported across the intestinal mucosa but moves across secondary to osmotic forces generated by the transport of solutes, such as electrolytes and nutrients. Normally, absorption and secretion take place simultaneously, but absorption is quantitatively greater. Either a decrease in absorption or an increase in secretion leads to additional water within the lumen and diarrhea. Excess stool water then causes decreased stool consistency. Blind loop syndrome is associated with abdominal surgery also, and there researches and prevention techniques are under evaluation for this particular case.
An Australian study detected SIBO from duodenal aspirates in 0% of healthy controls (mean age 59), although 13% were positive for SIBO using a lactulose breath test.7 Healthy elderly volunteers from the United Kingdom had a 14.5% prevalence rate for SIBO based on a positive glucose breath test.8 Finally, in a study of 111 patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), 20% of healthy age- and sex-matched controls were found to have an abnormal lactulose breath test suggestive of SIBO.9 In summary, although data are limited, the prevalence rates of SIBO in young and middle-aged adults appear to be low, whereas prevalence rates appear to be consistently higher in the older patient (14.5–15.6%); these rates, however, are dependent upon the diagnostic test used.
