IBS may be linked to small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), a condition where abnormally large numbers of bacteria are present in the small intestine. These types of bacteria can have a similarity to those more commonly found in the colon and are considered to establish an imbalance in the gut. It is also thought that many carbohydrates (sugars) cannot be successfully broken down and absorbed within the small intestine. As a result, these sugars are rapidly fermented by bacteria in the bowel which draws in fluid and produces gas, pain and bloating.
