Bloating is often one of the first signs that something is off in your digestive system. It’s also a symptom of many gut problems. A gut doctor can help diagnose and treat bloating issues to return your digestive health to normal. The Gut Authority can work with you and look at your overall health and diet to figure out the root cause of your bloating so we can help you.

What are Common Causes of Bloating

As a stand-alone symptom, bloating can be caused by a large variety of reasons. That’s why we’ll take a look at your whole body to see what other symptoms you’re having to get a clear picture of your gut health. A few of the common causes of bloating include:

  • Malabsorption
  • Leaky gut
  • Food allergies/sensitivities
  • Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth
  • Stress
  • Not enough good bacteria
  • Too much sugar or caffeine
  • Celiac Disease

In some rare cases, bloating can also be an indicator of bigger problems such as some cancers.

How Functional Medicine Can Help You Out

Our team will take the time to get a detailed health history to help get a clear picture of the issues you’re experiencing. We don’t want to just treat your symptoms.

It’s an indicator that your gut is in poor health. And a healthy gut means a healthier you.

It’s important to restore your gut health because it can lead to poor health in the rest of your body. Some common treatment options are adjusting your diet, consuming probiotic-rich food daily, testing for food sensitivities, tracking bowel movements, and increasing physical activity.
