If you struggle with excess gas and bloating you might have a problem with bacterial overgrowth. The Gut Authority can address your overall health to figure out the root cause of your gas problems. Our team will work to treat the problem and not just the symptoms.
Most of the bacteria in your gut is found in your colon. However, sometimes it can creep up into your small intestine (known as SIBO or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth) and cause problems with excess gas. If you eat a meal high in carbs or fiber then an excess of these bacteria will produce two types of gas, methane and hydrogen. As the bacteria metabolize the foods you eat, they react more with carbs and fiber.
They produce gas or hydrogen gas as a defense mechanism to protect themselves against these foods. Along with the production of gas, most people will experience other types of symptoms such as diarrhea or constipation, fatigue, malabsorption, depression, trouble sleeping, and brain fog. The symptoms you experience will be different depending on the type of bacteria.
While passing gas is normal from either swallowing air or bacteria feeding off undigested food particles in your large intestine, passing too much gas can be a sign of a problem. Typically, an increase in gas is caused by food sensitivities, a leaky gut, or SIBO. Our team will work to figure out the root cause of your issue.
