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 determine the root cause of your bloating so we can help you.

What are the Common Causes of Bloating

As a stand-alone symptom, bloating can be caused by many 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:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Malabsorption
  • Leaky gut
  • Food allergies/sensitivities
  • Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth
  • Stress
  • Immune system issues
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • 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, unhealthy bowel habits, digestive disorders such as inflammatory bowel disease, and others. A GI doctor can help diagnose these digestive issues.

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. Good gut health impacts your overall health and well-being, so managing your gastrointestinal tract properly is important. We want to get to the root cause of why you’re struggling with bloating. It’s an indicator that your gut is in poor gut health. And a healthy gut means a healthier you.

Restoring your gut health is important 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 such as lactose intolerance, tracking bowel movements, and increasing physical activity. It’s important that your gut bacteria levels are within normal range, and we work on resetting your gut microbiome with supplements and specific foods.
