What causes gut
There are many reasons for gut discomfort, even for patients getting enough probiotics and eating healthily. Some might still experience belly bloat and discomfort, gas, occasional constipation or loose stools. Even those with a healthy gut microbiome can suffer from time to time with digestive discomfort.
There are many reasons why:
- A stressful or demanding lifestyle
- A genetic disposition toward gut issues
- Undiagnosed food sensitivities, intolerances, or allergies
- A diet that’s excessive in fructose and other sugars, all linked to loose stools, flatulence, and stomach noise
- Stomach inflammation from taking over-the-counter or prescription non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.
- An issue with the gut-brain axis.
GI issues affect both men and women, but for various reasons, women suffer more than men.
