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.
- added the Filter feature back in so you can narrow food list by FODMAP level, diet and type of food
Ratings and Reviews
Not My Favorite - Deleted rather quickly
A little confusing. Can’t tell what’s good or bad with the colors. And the what’s x’d out and not.
Not sure if features have been removed or if this app needs to be updated for missing features to be visible again. One reviewer mentioned a “help section.“ If there is one, I have no idea how to get there. There’s no navigation menu and no home screen. There’s just the list of foods and the “filter“ button. Also, there really does need to be more explanation here. Although red and green are, basically, self-explanatory, yellow and orange need to be explained… as does the S A P. No idea what diets these are and whether it’s best to filter out some of them or leave them all on all the time. Some reviewers have mentioned that you need to be familiar with Monash or with Dr. Siebecker’s website. A good app should not require you to know information that can only be found elsewhere rather than in the app itself. Finally, I can’t scroll down to the “clear filters“ button at the bottom, which makes me think the app just needs to be updated.
Love seeing the different diets
This is one of a few SIBO apps I use. It offers the opportunity to see food allowances from the low FODMAP, SCD, Paleo, and AIP diets all in one place. Brilliant.
