We all know how uncomfortable it is to feel bloated. While this can be a normal feeling after overindulging in a meal, it is not normal to feel bloated every day. Frequent bloating is a sign that something in your digestive system is not functioning properly.
Amy Brenner, MD & Associates has a team of experienced physicians, nurse practitioners, and wellness coaches that work together to create customized treatment plans for every patient. With specialized testing, a thorough understanding of gut function, and the right tools for treatment, we can help patients put an end to bloating after eating.
If you’re always feeling bloated, you might have a condition called leaky gut or SIBO.
Your small intestine is lined with an immune barrier that keeps in food particles, toxins, and digestive waste. However, when this barrier is compromised, it can “leak” these unwanted substances into your bloodstream.
When these toxins enter your bloodstream, your body has an immune response and inflammation occurs. This inflammation can lead to bloating, pain, diarrhea, constipation, and other unwanted symptoms.
To determine if you have a leaky gut, we conduct leaky gut testing in Cincinnati. We use a stool test that can be completed at home to test for this condition. If leaky gut is the cause of your bloating, our gut experts will put together a care plan to help you get rid of bloating for good.
Leaky gut treatments
To treat your leaky gut, we will take the following steps:
- Remove the irritants and toxins in your digestive system
- Replace stomach acid and digestive enzymes
- Repair gut health with supplements and elimination diets
- Conduct food sensitivity testing in Cincinnati
- Help you make lifestyle changes to improve your gut health (stress reduction, improved sleep habits, diet, exercise, etc.)
Good bacteria is critical to your overall health, but an overgrowth of bacteria can cause a condition called Small Intestine Bacteria Overgrowth (SIBO). This can result in bloating, diarrhea, constipation, and other uncomfortable symptoms.
We can determine if you have SIBO with an easy breath test. Learn more about SIBO in our podcast.
