Gut Health Q&A

What are the symptoms of poor gut health?

Gut health can suffer with many different conditions, including:

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

IBS causes symptoms like abdominal pain, cramping, bloating, diarrhea, and constipation. People with IBS may have different gut microbes than healthy people. Other factors like infections and nerve-muscle communication problems may also play a role.

Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO)

SIBO occurs when the small intestine has excessive bacteria, especially kinds that normally don’t exist in that area. It can cause gas, bloating, and abdominal pain.

Helicobacter pylori (H-pylori) infection

H-pylori is a bacteria that can cause serious infections in your stomach or small intestine. Untreated, an H-pylori infection can lead to stomach ulcers and even stomach cancer. An H-pylori infection can cause dull stomach pain, bloating, indigestion, and other issues.

Inflammatory bowel disease

Inflammatory bowel diseases include Crohn’s disease, which affects any part of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, and ulcerative colitis, which affects the colon. Both can cause significant GI distress, including abdominal pain, diarrhea, chronic fatigue, and other issues.

Gut health issues can also manifest in other ways. For example, you might experience rashes, mood swings, and other problems due to poor gut health. Evidence shows that an unhealthy gut can even trigger some autoimmune diseases.

How does gut health testing work?

Gut health testing depends on your situation, but most people who have GI symptoms need comprehensive functional medicine testing. Among the tests you may need are:

  • H-pylori breath test
  • GI map stool test
  • SIBO breath test
  • Food sensitivity testing

In addition to specific functional medicine tests, everyone with GI problems needs comprehensive blood tests to check factors like inflammatory markers, autoimmune markers, hormones, blood sugar, liver function, kidney function, electrolyte levels, and many other aspects of health.

How does gut health treatment work?

Gut health treatment at The Well-Nest depends on your condition and its root causes. In most cases, there are a few different approaches available, and your provider recommends the ideal one for your situation. For example, H-pylori infection is treatable with either herbs or antibiotics.

Your treatment helps to relieve your symptoms quickly, and because you’re addressing the true cause of the problem, you’ll have long-term relief.
