what kinds of carbs are safe for SIBO/Candida?

There are differing opinions since Candida can feed on ketones, etc.

Im confused, is it SIBO that cant feed on starchy foods like potatoes, but Candida can?

However, candida cant feed on green leafy vegetables but SIBO can ferment them?

If someone were to have both, would it be wise to do a course of antibiotics and then treat for candida? Or treat for SIBO first then treat for candida overgrowth?

Typically, SIBO is a sign of something worse. What is causing the ovegrowth, if you truly do have it? Perhaps you are to best start looking for another answer before you claim that you have SIBO. If you have alot of gas after each and every meal no matter the food, then this could be a likely sign. If you have a white filmy layer on your tongue, this indicates yeast overgrowth, a strong indicator of SIBO.

well he just told me that to keep taking probiotics and add in metamucil. He doesnt see a connection of the fatigue and lethargy to my GI symptoms. He also said he doesnt have the breath test. What do I do now?

Tell them tomorrow that you want to have this test done. I would get tested earlier than May for sure.

The underlying causes is bacterial overgrowth in the small intestines (at least I think it is). They are the ones slowing the stomach transit time and lowering the stomach acid. If you get rid of them, you will have less problems to take care of.

neverending hunger, anxiety, difficulty concentrating. If you could treat the underlying cause, such as slow transit or low stomach acid, would SIBO clear on its own?

Im going tomorrow 3/20 for a consultation. I have an appointment in May with an integrative health clinic. Im still not sure, but everything is pointing to an overgrowth. I had Spring Break last week and ate SAD the entire week and my symptoms alleviated slightly. Yet Im still having irregular BMs, brain fog, dizzyness, extremely lethargic, cold extremeties and getting really tired especially after eating.

@ David Hill 76 - I actually wanted to ask this myself. So when will you find out if you have SIBO or not?

Did it turn out you had SIBO? Or are just you assuming? Last time I checked, it appeared that you were assuming, but you did not appear to have overgrowth of bacteria. However, were you tested, and did the results prove positive?

People tend to follow a SCD (Standard Carb Diet) and avoid sugar AFTER a course of antibiotics as following a SCD prior will provide only minor relief. However, the problem with taking antibiotics is that they are often only effective in the short term because they do not treat the CAUSE of the bacterial overgrowth. Hence, remission is inevitable.

SIBO and candida overgrowth are often a sign of an underlying problem, explaining why so many people are continuously suffering as their symptoms simply need to be evaluated further. Understandably, there is some sort of malfunction in the digestive tract which leads to overgrowth of bacteria. Without treating this, you cannot quell the overgrowth.
