Should everyone be tested for SIBO? How do you know your gut is healthy? A leaky gut would be very non-optimal...

You know your gut it healthy if you aren't thinking about your gut, digestion, excretion. It just does its thing and you do yours.

Agreed. It's both the type and the experience of passing it.

Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth. You can check out paleo acronyms here : http://paleohacks.com/questions/1138/what-are-all-of-these-paleo-related-acronyms-and-terminologies#axzz1IbWJR32X (I see SIBO is not on that list).

SIBO? What's it with paleo types throwing around these obscure acronyms without any explanation. CLO, PUFA, WTF.

The barometer of my digestive health is my poop.

You might listen to a podcast from Dr Allison Siebecker - who seems to be pretty knowledgeable about SIBO. http://www.siboinfo.com The podcast is on the front page of the website that she did with Dr. Lo. I believe Allison recently participated in the Paleo Summit which you can google and find more information about... Here's info about being tested for SIBO www.siboinfo.com/testing1.html

You should be tested for SIBO if you have digestive symptoms, such as bloating, abdominal pain, gas, GERD, constipation/diarrhea. SIBO can cause a leaky gut but if you have SIBO, you will have both digestive symptoms + leaky gut symptoms. You can find more information about how to adapt your Paleo diet with SIBO here.
