Hi there, just wondered if I could get some thoughts on what to do next. I have been under the gastro since September 2012. Had celiac ruled out in November. Started myself on FODMAPS in feb and been on it since (bar a couple of mistaken lapses). Still waiting to be tested for SIBO. I am now reluctant to do this until at least July as I have an exam to sit in June and cannot risk a flare up leaving me in a bad state before that.
I think my issue is definately bacterial but also a major sugar problem so possibly hypoglycaemia too.
So my questions are:
1) besides SIBO tests where I have to ingest lactose or sucrose( have I got that right?) are there any other tests that can be done? And what tests for hypoglycaemia?
2) in the mean time should I start taking a probiotic or anything else to get my insides working properly?
ANY thoughts, suggestions are welcome as I have had enough of 'blackout' moments and need to get on with my life sooner rather than later when the DRs finally get around to actually seeing the bigger picture of what is actually going on in me.
