    Is this something you have been reading about and worrying over or something you have been diagnosed with?

    nic14120 replied to georgiagail's response:
    Gail- I was diagnosed with the SiBO as we discussed. My sis is in the medical field and we were discussing my enlarged spleen. She said the spleen is reacting to something, then we got on the topic of leaky gut issues. I did research that SIBo can lead to a leaky gut. I have to follow up with the Gi anyway, but am now curious if this is to be a situation for me, would the toxins and such that are leaking out- what kind of risk could that pose on the pregnancy, if any at all.

    Why don't you find out if you have this syndrome first.

    nic14120 replied to georgiagail's response:
    I will be calling for my GI f/up appt, but I am just curious what affects this could have on a pregnancy, if by chance this was an issue.
