Hi Jaeme–I know that one reason the PPI route was not suggested was that I have been on three different ones with no improvement in symptoms. Otherwise, I do not know if my current doctor might have suggested them. I think Nexium contributed to me getting SIBO in the first place. I used to eat lots of bagels (high FP) figuring that bread was good to absorb excess stomach acid. That was probably another contributing factor. I am happy that this doctor wants to find the root cause of my problem instead of labeling it as GERD based upon symptoms.
