SIBO is a condition in which the increased bacterial load in the small bowel results in excessive fermentation and inflammation, leading to a variety of clinical complaints ranging from mild, non-specific symptoms such as abdominal pain, bloating and flatulence, to more severe manifestations such as malabsorption and weight loss. The exact prevalence of bacterial overgrowth syndrome is likely underestimated because the clinical manifestations overlap with those of many other malabsorptive and diarrheal disorders. The advanced cases of bacterial overgrowth syndrome may manifest as malabsorption and therefore it is vital that this condition is detected in the early stages, so as to lessen the significant impact of malnutrition associated with malabsorption syndrome. Treatment in bacterial overgrowth syndrome (BOS) should include correction of primary underlying disease if any, including antibiotic therapy and nutritional support. This presentation will seek to explore the best treatments available for this challenging disorder.
