In Topic: FODMAP Diet Versus Specific Carb Diet Question

01 November 2011 - 12:21 AM

Kathleen and Kayo,
I was wondering the same thing. I have celiac and SIBO.

I wonder if perhaps one type of bacteria - the main classifications I know about are hydrogen versus methane producing bacteria - tends to have different preferences so that folks who have methane bacteria do better on SCD and folks who have hydrogen bacteria do better on FODMAP, for example? Just wondering. I have absolutely no idea.

But I too am comparing these two diets to start myself, and was noticing how they are almost opposite each other.

In Topic: Rifaximin For Sibo

01 November 2011 - 12:18 AM

Check out Dr. Pimmental's info and you'll come up with some answers. Rifaximin is good stuff for hydrogen producing bacteria (the diarrhea type) but I was told by my GI motility doc that it's not nearly as effective for folks who have methane producing bacteria (constipation type). Both are types of bacteria that can be found in SIBO.

Are you making dietary changes (GAP/SCD or FODMAP) and/or taking probiotics along with the Rif treatment? There are a number of ways to go about it, but given the expense of the Rif, its good to consider how to MAINTAIN any progress you make during and after treatment to prevent relapse. Good luck!

In Topic: Celiac Disease And Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (Sibo)

Was diagnosed with Celiac 2010 (had started gluten-free diet 100 percent strict in mid-2009), and in 2011 was diagnosed with SIBO. Lived almost all my life with chronic diarrhea until several months after going gluten-free. Then after a few months, I had my first run-ins with constipation which was a new animal to me altogether. Its gotten worse and worse and now i have full-blown SIBO with methane producing bacteria (constipation-causing type...hydrogen producing bacteria causes diarrhea usually). celiac disease opens you up to getting SIBO. Yes, its very complex.

We need a buddy group for moms with little ones. These are some great ideas! Thanks!

Just wanted to say that reading your posts is entirely entertaining (perhaps I'm easily entertained...???? :huh: ) and I've been chuckling :D . Thanks for posting. B)
