What is SIBO?

Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth is a bacterial colonization of the small intestine. These bacteria normally colonize the large intestine, but not the small intestine. The bacteria interfere with normal digestion and absorption of food, and are associated with damage to the lining or membrane of the small intestine.
