Has anyone had success treating SIBO involving klebsiella oxytoca?
I had a Genova CDSA 2.0 stool test which shows dysbiosis and K. Oyxtoca overgrowth.
Bacteriology section showed:
lactobacillus - no growth
escherichia coli - 3+
alpha haemolytic streptococcus 4+
gamma haemolytic streptoccus 3+
bacillus species 2+
pseudomonas aeruginosa 1+
enterobacter species 3+
klebsiella oxytoca 4+
I also had a 2 hour lactulose breath test which came out positive for SIBO and showed I'm hydrogen dominant with lower methane.
I am seeing an integrative physician, but this is not really his area of expertise though he says he has treated other SIBO patients. My concern is that the treatment he has me on - natural antimicrobials and probiotics - may not be effective. Klebsiella is resistant to antibiotics, so I'd like to know if anyone has had K Oytoca and had success treating it? I keep reading about
a zillion different special diets for SIBO so I'm confused.
My feeling is that the natural microbials should be more selected for effectiveness towards the specific bacteria - k oxytoca - and that my doctor is taking a more generic approach to just SIBO as a generalized disorder, but perhaps the Candibactin he suggested (which appears to be primarily berberines and oils like thyme and oregano) may not be effective at treating this particular bacteria.
