I heard if you have SIBO your gut is damaged. I’m battling SIBO since September of last year. I had an endoscopy done two weeks ago. My Gastrointestinal Surgeon said, he went as far as he could into the small bowel and he said all looked perfectly normal. He took the biopsy and the results came back normal. It says normal villi structure or architecture. I can’t remember how it was exactly worded. What is the damage then? I need to repeat some of my lab tests but last 2 months back my folate, Vit B12, iron, and ferritin were normal.
I just had some lab work done 2 weeks ago and all came back normal. I guess as I am coming more from conventional medicine world I’m trying to understand the Naturopathic Doctor approach and validate the claims they make. I’m not against functional medicine. On contrary, I’m very interested, but I’m having a difficult time wrapping my mind around all these ideas.
