A Microbiologist’s Perspective on Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth

Hi friends!

At my last webinar with microbiologist and founder of Microbiome Labs, Kiran Krishnan, (if you missed that webinar, catch up here), Kiran graciously offered to share a practitioners-only presentation he recently gave on Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth with us!

If you’re like me, you love getting access to the info that’s normally only privy to gut-health experts!

You can watch the entire presentation in the video below. And a special thank you to Kiran for sharing this important talk with us!

And don’t forget – you can also use my “Patient Direct Code” to order supplements directly from Microbiome Labs (which normally requires access to a practitioner!)

Register as a patient with patient direct code “SIBOSOS” HERE: https://sibosos.com/microbiome-labs (this is the first step – you can’t order directly from Microbiome Labs unless you do this).

Then use code “DIGESTIONSOS” for 15% off your entire order! (This coupon is one-time-use only!)

  1. Hi I have a question is there any studies about Tu erculosis bacteria and its effects im the gut? I have loved with dormant TB for more than a decade and I have been healthy.
    Please let me know thank you

    1. I hope I’m not answering out of turn but I wanted to make sure you got some sort of answer. Yes, there are several. You have probably been healthy because yours is dormant. Here are some interesting studies you can read to get you started.

  2. Sooo helpful. It was news to me that fat aggravates SIBO. The only way I can manage my loathing etc is to keep low carb, but I eat a lot of healthy fats- am vegetarian. Can you take the spore biopics, mega prebiotic and megamucosa without first having an antibiotic?

  3. OMG, the LPS/endotoxemia explanation makes so much sense as to why rounds of antimicrobials and prokinetics have not worked for me. I also get all the symptoms described – upper GI pressure, nausea, feeling awful – starting about 3 hours following a meal and for hours afterward, and why eating fat makes it all worse. God bless Dr. Krishnan for his late nights of work.

  4. In regards to Kiran’s hypothesis that gram-negative bacteria are coming through the mouth was recently echoed in a recent video by Dr Michael Ruscio where he summarizes a very recent study showing oral origin of SIBO.

  5. It’s interesting that some people are following a carnivore diet for SIBO and gut healing when all else has failed and it has apparently worked for them. Carnivore is a high fat diet yet Kiran says fat is not good for SIBO.
