Digestive Issues

Digestive Issues Treatment in Akron

Your gut is, literally and figuratively, the engine of a healthy body. When your digestive system is out of balance, you may need more than a simple antacid or a course of antibiotics to feel better.

Recent medical research has shown that the balance of friendly gut microbes that live in your digestive systems rule the entire health of your body. The good gut “bugs” are your first defense against harmful viruses and bacteria and safeguard proper communication from your brain to the body not only for proper digestion but also to regulate mood and manage stress levels. When your microbiome is off, everything is off.

At Forum Health Akron, our medical team is expertly trained to understand the symptoms and causes of your digestive health problems — including nutrition, undiagnosed medical issues, hormone imbalance, inflammation, and infection — and diagnose an effective treatment plan.

Gut Dysfunction Including Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Gastrointestinal disorders, such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) are becoming more common due to the overuse of NSAIDS and proton pump inhibitors (Acid blockers). We use a specialized stool test that can detect whether you have enough stomach acid, if you are digesting your food, and what kind of bacteria you have in your gut. Often we find too much or too little bacteria that can cause symptoms. We also test for SIBO with a breath test and are able to prescribe the proper treatment plan.
