IBS Chat Episode 4: Dr. Mark Pimentel is a pioneer in his work to uncover the role of bacteria and the link with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and was my guest at DDW

Dr. Mark Pimentel spoke to me at Digestive Disease Week (DDW) about what is the possible mechanism behind IBS and what is the role that Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth or SIBO plays? Is IBS a diagnosis of exclusion or inclusion? If I have food poisoning, will I develop IBS? Dr. Pimentel is a pioneer in motility disorder research having discovered a blood test to provide a definitive diagnosis for IBS. Dr Pimentel is the Program Director of the Medically Associated Science and Technology Program known as MAST at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles California.
