FEEL AWFUL, BUT TOLD YOUR BLOODWORK IS GREAT?

YOU FEEL “OFF” AND JUST CANNOT FIGURE IT OUT.

AFTER sharing your feelings with your physician, you are told to get some bloodwork done.

But, when the bloodwork comes back, you hear “Your bloodwork looks GREAT. All is good”.

See you next year.

What?! You still feel awful. How can this be?

According to studies conducted at the Harvard Medical School, you may be suffering from DGBI or Diseases of the Gut-Brain Interaction. A problem with communication between your brain and your digestive system.

This has been one of the more challenging issues for gastroenterologists and, one they are seeing more and more of in recent years.

DGBI’s can include things such as irritable bowel syndrome, reflux hypersensitivity, or functional dyspepsia.

DGBI’s can be treated in various ways, lifestyle, medications, alternative medicine, and behavioral therapy.

Eliminating very “fatty” and overly processed foods may improve this condition but, it’s hard to sustain such a severe change in your dietary habits.

Low-Fodmap eating is often used as an option but, patients are warned against it if they’ve had any sort of eating disorder.

If you feel you have this disorder, talk openly with your medical professional and let them know how severely this disorder is impacting your lifestyle. Stay with it until YOU feel your doctor understands your symptoms.

Stay strong and keep moving,
