Has anyone had success with treating SIBO? (Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth)

Pretty sure I have SIBO from excessive candida (yeast) growing in my body. I have all the symptoms. It’s causing a lot of issues in my life. I have a doctors appointment on Tuesday to see what is going on. Has anyone had success with treating candida and SIBO? What did you do? Did you take antibiotics or use herbal remedies? And how long did it take before you noticed any difference?

Please be careful. There are a lot of practitioners who are willing to take a lot of money from you to deal with this. Also there's several Laboratories that perform non-clinical level tests that are often used to justify expensive therapy.

Probiotics. And less sugary foods. Hard to totally get rid of but those 2 are a good start. Be a tonne of info online.

@shanefromaus my brain is about to explode with all the info online. I’ve found talking to people who’ve been through the same things is a good way to share info. But I have already cut out sugary foods and taking probiotics

Are you sure it's not C diff?

@TexChik I don’t know exactly what is going on that’s why I have a doctors appointment on Tuesday. I get chronic yeast infections that won’t go away with medication. I get bad stomach aches after eating most foods. My feet itch. I have rashes on my skin. So it could be a few things but my guess is SIBO from candida
