The primary goal of therapy in SIBO should be the treatment of any
underlying disease or structural defect, although for many conditions,
this cannot be achieved. Management should include correction of
any nutritional deficiencies, where present. This may involve
nutritional support and/or supplemental fat-soluble vitamins, vitamin
B12 and minerals. The use of prokinetic agents may be considered
for patients with gastroparesis or intestinal dysmotility. However, the
efficacy of these agents has not yet been proven.
Treatment for SIBO aims to modify the GI microbiota, usually with
antibiotics, in a way that will result in symptomatic improvement. Due
to the limitations associated with qualitative and quantitative
bacteriological studies and because the contaminating bacterial
populations are quite numerous, choice of antibiotic remains primarily
empiric. Effective treatment generally includes one or more drugs
with activity against both aerobic and anaerobic enterobacteria.
