SIBO monitoring with AIRE 2

Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) is a build up of certain types of bacteria in the small intestine. That’s where you absorb nutrients from your food. Instead, the bacteria can ‘eat’ the food, producing gases in the process. The build up of the gases can leave you bloated and in pain, but there are loads of other symptoms of SIBO like unintended weight loss, brain fog and skin issues.

AIRE 2 can help you monitor your SIBO and track any changes over time. Monitoring your gas levels will allow to see what’s helping bring the levels down.

Here's a good approach to take:

1. Measure your baseline
See what your gas levels are like now while tracking your symptoms and other relevant aspects.

2. Make a change
Make adjustments in your diet or follow a suggested protocol to bring down the gas levels.

3. Monitor and improve
Assess your progress and keep learning about your digestion.

Please be mindful that during treatment of SIBO there is a series of complex changes happening in our gut microbiome and fermentation levels may appear erratic for some time. Again, this is why day to day breath testing can be so helpful and should help you to assess the changes happening over time.

As with any serious medical condition, when dealing with SIBO it's always best to remain in frequent consultation with a trusted healthcare provider as they can offer the best guidance and support as you undergo treatment.
