What's the benefit of doing the small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) test and a Gut Health Test together?

Doing the SIBO and a Gut Health Test together gives a comprehensive picture of what's going on in your gut.

A SIBO test reveals whether or not you have too many bacteria in your small intestine, while a Gut Health Test analyses your lower intestine, or colon.

The Gut Health Test can help shed light on some possible underlying causes of SIBO. If you have SIBO and we do not remove the underlying cause then you will be susceptible to SIBO coming back.

Read our blog post: SIBO symptoms: what they mean to get the full rundown on SIBO.

If you don't have SIBO, the reasons behind your symptoms could be revealed in the Gut Health Test.

The biomarkers in the Gut Health Tests help direct our practitioners to the right supplements for you, or to other ways to support you back to health.

You'll get extra food recommendations based your microbiome report, and dedicated practitioner support if the test picks up parasites or overgrowths.

The general meal plan that you will follow will be the same as you'd get with just one test, and some of the supplements will be the same: a supplement that helps SIBO could also be appropriate for a parasite or overgrowth in the large intestine, for example.

Most importantly, you'll get specific advice dependent on the outcome of your tests.
