7 Most Common Signs Of Unhealthy Gut

There are many factor in life that can affect our gut microbiome such as high stress levels, too little sleep, eating processed and high-sugar foods and taking antibiotics.

In turn this might affect other aspects of our health, such as the brain, heart, immune system, skin, weight, hormone levels, ability to absorb nutrients, and even the development of cancer.

There a number of ways an unhealthy gut might reveal itself and here are seven of the most common signs:

  1. Upset stomach

Stomach disturbances like gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, and heartburn can all be signs of an unhealthy gut.

A balanced gut will have easier time when processing food and eliminating waste.

  1. A high-sugar diet
Consuming processed food and added sugars can decrease the amount of good bacteria in your gut.

 

This imbalance can cause increased sugar cravings, which can damage your gut further.

High amounts of refined sugars, particularly high-fructose corn syrup, have been associated to increased inflammation in the body.

In fact, inflammation can be the precursor to a number of diseases and even cancers.

  1. Unintentional weight changes

An imbalanced gut can weaken your body system’s ability to absorb nutrients, regulate blood sugar, and store fat.

Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) may be the cause of weight loss and

 insulin resistance or the urge to overeat because of decreased in nutrient 

absorption may cause weight gain.

 


 

 

 

 

 

  1. Sleep disturbances or constant fatigue

Another sign of unhealthy gut is when gaining or losing weight without making changes to your diet or exercise habits.

An unhealthy gut may contribute to sleep disturbances such as insomnia or poor sleep, and therefore lead to chronic fatigue.

 

In fact serotonin, a hormone that affects mood and sleep is produced in the gut.

Therefore, damaging our gut can impair our ability to sleep well and can also affect our mood.

Some sleep disturbances have also been linked to risk for fibromyalgia.

  1. Skin irritation
Skin conditions like eczema may be related to a damaged gut.

Poor diet or food allergies can cause inflammation in the gut, which can may cause an increase leaking of certain proteins out into the body.

This increased of certain proteins can irritate the skin and cause conditions like eczema.

  1. Autoimmune conditions

Autoimmne diseases, where the body attacks itself rather than harmful invaders can be cause by unhealthy gut. Medical researchers are continually finding new evidence of the impact of the gut on the immune system. Unhealthy gut may increase systemic inflammation and may alter the proper function of the immune system.

  1. Food intolerances
Food intolerances are the result of difficulty digesting certain foods.

 

Having a poor quality in the gut can cause food intolerances.

This can lead to difficulty digesting the trigger foods and unpleasant symptoms such as bloating, gas, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and nausea.
