Can I use GutPro if I have been diagnosed with SIBO?



Yes, many customers use GutPro when they have been diagnosed with SIBO. It is best to speak to your healthcare provider before adding probiotics to your routine.

Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) is exactly what it sounds like: too much bacteria in the small intestine. Everyone has bacteria in their gut; they play a key part in digestion. But if things get out of balance, problems can happen.

Your healthcare provider may recommend a low-FODMAP diet. FODMAPs are a type of carbohydrate (FODMAP stands for fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides, and polyols.). Not every carb is a FODMAP. You’ll want to talk to a practitioner who’s knowledgeable about nutrition so you can know what you can eat and how to meet your nutritional needs on this plan.

You might want to ask your healthcare provider whether probiotics could help. You can get probiotics in fermented foods like yogurt (look for “live, active cultures” on the label), kefir (a yogurt-based drink), and kimchi (a traditional Korean relish). Foods are always a good first step since you’ll get lots of other nutrients that are good for you.
