Dear Heather,

Your site and info has been a help to me these now 12 years I've been dx with a "sensitive gut" with bouts of IBS-D symptoms (but did not fit full criteria). Mainly it was morning gas and discomfort, crazy gurgling stomach at night, and sometimes nausea- it's morphed all around, symptoms waxing and waning, chronic and usually mild, w/ flare ups when exhausted etc. This all followed a long trip to Central America and gastrotitis attack. New fab GI said I'm not satisfied w/ "IBS" dx with you (endoscopy and colonoscopy were negative) so I want you to go have this hydrogen breath test. So many dead endds I put it off a year. New BF who traveled in a lot of 3rd world places said you have to do this. Well GUESS WHAT?? Normal baseline 0-15, mine was 58. Average spiked count for someone w/ SIBO- 48 at END of two hour test. Mine was 120 after ONE hour!!! I am so happy that this med I read about rifaximin may cure me- or at least really reduce things- and I have to follow a diet too I think. Have not seen GI yet- only tester at hospital. But I want to pass this on bc there may be people like me who don't know about this test who had these symptoms that don't fit IBS perfectly, after a GI "attack" (food bourne in my case abroad) and must insist on this test! I will be interested to see what happens to me now! Wishing you all the best!!! Maggie
