I am so happy that I tested negative for SIBO today. Eight months ago, I had a bad case. I am also delighted that the doctor who is having me get a Manometry and Ph test for GERD took me off of Prevacid. She wants to find out if my problem is due to GERD. Another doctor recently put me on the PPI to see if it would alleviate my acidic throat issues. It did nothing. I am going to ask for an H pylori test next because it is quite prevalent (over 50%) in people over the age of 50. If I test positive, the nurse said I should also get my husband and dog tested as they could be carriers. I never knew that, but it can be transmitted by saliva. We all know how dogs can slobber all over your face!
