High Likelihood of an Unhealthy Gut
Results and Recommended Next Steps
The symptoms of an unhealthy gut can sometimes be challenging to solve for without the correct information. In general, the symptoms below are commonly seen in individuals with an unhealthy gut:
• GI upset, stomach pain, or cramps. If you get frequent gastrointestinal upset after eating in the form of stomach pain, cramps, gas, bloating, or other discomforts, this can be a sign of poor gut health
• Feeling sluggish and fatigued or having a poor sleep. As the gut is a strong communicator with the brain, poor gut health could be a factor here.
• Having a depressed mood. If the gut microbiome is not in balance and communicating with the brain correctly, this can certainly affect mood.
• Being frequently sick. Good gut health is correlated with higher levels of immunity, and if you find that you catch nearly every cold or illness that comes around and your immunity is low, it can be a sign of poor gut health.
• Sudden gains or losses in weight. If you’ve experienced recent unintended changes in weight, it can be due to poor gut health.
The nice thing is there are many options for a simple test that can be done in the comfort of your own home and can help guide you with options such as personalized recommendations for probiotics or diet changes.
