A New IBS Solution
awillisant posted:
Has anyone read or receive any updates regarding the book from Dr. Mark Pimentel, MD? This book has info concerning a his/new IBS solution. I believe it is a good read; however, my GI specialist believes there is more to the story or there needs to be more research concerning the approach Dr. Pimentel uses. Thanks! Ant

I just looked it up and Dr Mark Pimentel has decided that all IBS is really just SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth). This has already been disproved. While there are people who have been misdiagnosed with IBS when they really have SIBO, it's not true of everyone.

I concur with Sheba_q's comment. SIBO appears to be one of the problems that may be labeled or result in IBS, but it's not the only component. It would be wonderful if it were that 'easy,' but unfortunately it's not.
