    How is SIBO healed?

    The keystone of SIBO treatment is of course antibiotic therapy, decreasing or even eradicating the excessive bacteria and thus decreasing the pathological mutations they cause in the small intestine.

    How does SIBO come from?

    SIBO occurs when intestinal stasis offers the opportunity for bacteria to proliferate. Mechanical stasis, which can be seen after gastrointestinal surgery, is an obvious cause of bacterial overgrowth.

    How are intestinal bacteria treated?

    Among the measures for the treatment of gastrointestinal infections are:
    1. Rehydration - orally and sometimes intravenously.
    2. In many cases of bacterial gastroenteritis, only symptomatic treatment is needed (for fever, diarrhea, etc.).

    What is bacterial growth?

    Intestinal bacterial overgrowth, more commonly called SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, in English), is defined as an overgrowth of bacteria in the small intestine. Normally, most bacteria are found in the large intestine, also called the colon.

    How are intestinal bacteria transmitted?

    contact with animals carrying bacteria. consumption of food washed with contaminated water. ingestion of water not adequately disinfected with chlorine, contaminated by the faeces of infected individuals in swimming pools or aquatic structures. contact with infected people or with contaminated objects, such as diapers of young children.

    What is the ideal growth temperature for most bacteria?

    Based on the different growth temperatures we can divide the bacteria into: Thermophilic bacteria: they grow at high temperatures (47-70 ° C, optimum temperature: 50-55 ° C) Mesophilic bacteria: they grow at intermediate temperatures (20-45 ° C, optimum temperature 30-37 ° C)

    What pH favors the development of bacteria?

    Bacteria grow in environments with pH between 4,5 and 9, with an optimum between 6,5 and 7,5.
