Lesson 1 What is SIBO: Pathophysiology, Clinical Presentation, and Diagnosis
Explore the pathophysiology, signs, and symptoms of SIBO as well as risk factors for the development of this condition.
Understanding the patterns, presentations, and diagnosis of SIBO is discussed in the context of the hydrogen/methane breath test.
Hydrogen sulfide SIBO, a relative newcomer in the field of SIBO, will also be discussed.
Learning objectives ✔ Evaluate the clinical presentation of a SIBO patient ✔ Learn to identify SIBO risk factors and underlying predisposing factors for the development of SIBO ✔ Accurately predict different types of SIBO based on breath test result as well as signs and symptoms
Lesson 2 The Comprehensive Treatment of SIBO
Lesson 2 is all about the treatment approaches for the different types of SIBO we've learned about in Lesson 1.
We explore the SIBO diet and how to effectively use the Bi-Phasic Diet as a tool to manage different stages of treatment. Also discussed are antimicrobial therapies (herbal, conventional, and elemental diet) as well as other specific products often found useful in the treatment of SIBO.
✔ Understand the use of the SIBO diet and why it differs from a low FODMAP diet ✔ Understand how to use herbal antimicrobials as well as conventional antibiotics found to be effective in different types of SIBO ✔ Understand when to prescribe the Elemental Diet as an antimicrobial treatment ✔ Pre and probiotics, biofilm products, and specific nutrients and their role in SIBO treatment ✔ Practitioners will have access to the newly updated online DIspensary Guide to help with product selections
Lesson 3 Identifying Underlying Causes of SIBO to Prevent Relapse
In this lesson, we deep dive into the 4 different categories of underlying causes of SIBO:
✔ Motility disorders ✔ Digestive Deficits ✔ Obstructions ✔ Medications
Understanding the underlying drivers of a patient's cause of SIBO is a practitioner's most powerful tool to prevent the frequent relapse of SIBO as well as avoid unnecessary medications and supplements. Many conditions can affect the motility of the upper gut, thereby causing SIBO to occur. Learn about common causes of dysmotility, as well as resetting vagal function. Also discussed are prokinetic medications that aim to reset the motility of the upper gut.
Participants will be able to download the clinical tool "What caused my SIBO" Questionnaire for use with their patients.
Learning objectives: ✔ Understand how to use the "What caused my SIBO" Questionnaire ✔ Understand the 4 different categories of underlying causes of SIBO ✔ When to use and when NOT to use prokinetics in SIBO ✔ Long term management to prevent relapse
