SIBO, or Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth, is a chronic bacterial infection of the gastrointestinal tract. This app is designed to be a mobile resource for those dealing with SIBO. It was developed in conjunction with Dr. Allison Siebecker, ND, MSOM, Lac from the SIBO Center at the National College for Natural Medicine in Portland, OR.
The initial version of the app supplies the user with an interactive version of the SIBO Specific Food Guide which identifies foods that may aggravate the symptoms of SIBO. The SIBO Specific Food Guide was developed by Dr. Allison Siebecker, ND, MSOM, LAc as combination of The Specific Carbohydrate Diet and The Low Fodmap Diet. It includes Dr. Siebecker's clinical input and several alterations from the original diets, based on her experience treating SIBO with diet. Dr. Siebecker has found this combination best for symptomatic relief of SIBO and specifically best for those who do not get adequate symptom relief from the other diets. It combines the best of both diets, reducing a broader range of fermentable carbohydrates than any other SIBO diet. The Food Guide is also cross referenced with the Paleo and Paleo Autoimmune Protocol diets for those starting with these diets instead of SCD.
The data set currently is available per device and does not include iCloud sync in the initial release.
Fixed filtering bugs from last release
- Clear Filter didn't clear the diet filter properly
- filtering on some combinations of filters did not work properly
Ratings and Reviews
Helpful but colors not explained
I’m trying to fight SIBO and find this app to be very useful for helping me look up which foods I can have, as I am trying to do the diet recommended by Dr. Siebecker (a combo of SCD and low fodmap). However, no where on Dr. Siebecker’s website (which has the colored chart of foods that this app is based on), nor on this app does it explain the meaning of the colored circles. Clearly red is bad and green is safe. But does orange mean I shouldn’t eat it? Or can I have orange foods in moderation? Some entries have serving sizes attached to the color (it’s yellow if I eat 1/2 cup, but orange if I eat a cup), which is super helpful, but many don’t .
Great for experienced fodmapper
I've been following low fodmap with the monash app for a few weeks. I like this app because it's specific to sibo and is basically low fodmap and scd. However, you definitely need to have some familiarity with the stop light system from the monash app to understand this one. This is free but the monash app is $8-9 and is specific to Australia which can be a bit confusing. Thanks for developing!
Very helpful -- Thanks!
This app combines information on allowed foods for the Specific Carbohydrate Diet and the Low FODMAP diet, which I found very helpful when I recently started the Low FODMAP diet.
Regarding the stoplight system, go to the "Help" section in the app, and the colors are explained there.
Thanks for creating this app!
