Customer Question

Hi,
I recently had a stool test done as I have an annoying taste in my mouth that wont go away even after dental check ups. I was just wondering if you could check my results for me please and see if theres anything wrong? My anaerobic bacteria results look really bad I guess? I dont have any symptoms other than the mouth problem, I have no stomach problems, no diahrea or anything like that.
Have put links to my results below :

Hi. I looked at your links

Let me ask, even though you said you had no stomach problems--no indigestion or gas problems at all?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Hi,

I have gas on occasions, like last night I had wind for around 2 hours but I'm not sure if its any worse than the average person or not.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

OK John.

Looks like you have something called SIBO--small intestine bacterial overgrowth.

You need to get an upper endoscopy study with duodenal samples taken for cultures to diagnose that and it's treated with probiotics and antibiotics

So basically you need a referral to a gastroenterologist

Let me know if you need any more information please
