Do You Have a Gut Issue? Check the Symptoms

Too many people living in North Dakota assume gut discomfort is part of life. But that’s not true. Unfortunately, many of us have grown up eating imbalance diets and modern lifestyles don’t help either. 

If you identify with the following symptoms, you need to come visit our Fargo gut health doctor in person or online.

Chronic digestive discomfort

Persistent bloating, gas, or abdominal pain. Chronic digestive discomfort is characterized by ongoing feelings of bloating, excessive gas, or abdominal pain. These symptoms can significantly impact your daily life, causing discomfort and affecting your overall well-being. Dr. Sauer understands that identifying the underlying causes of these issues is crucial for effective treatment and will work with you to uncover the root cause of your digestive discomfort.

Irregular bowel movements

Alternating between diarrhea and constipation or experiencing long-term diarrhea or constipation. Irregular bowel movements can disrupt your daily routine and indicate an imbalance in gut health. Alternating between diarrhea and constipation, or experiencing prolonged periods of either, may be a sign of gut dysbiosis or other underlying gut issues. Dr. Sauer will help determine the underlying causes of these irregularities and develop a personalized treatment plan to restore healthy bowel movements.

Food intolerances

Difficulty digesting certain foods, leading to reactions like nausea, cramping, or diarrhea. Food intolerances can cause digestive distress when your body has difficulty digesting specific foods. Symptoms can range from mild to severe and may include nausea, cramping, diarrhea, or other gastrointestinal discomfort. Dr. Sauer specializes in identifying food intolerances and will guide you through an elimination diet or advanced testing to pinpoint the problematic foods and develop a tailored dietary plan.


Feeling constantly tired or lacking energy. Fatigue is a common symptom experienced by individuals with gut issues. When the gut is not functioning optimally, nutrient absorption can be compromised, leading to deficiencies that can contribute to persistent tiredness and low energy levels. By addressing the root causes of your gut issues, Dr. Sauer aims to restore your energy levels and improve your overall vitality.

Brain fog

Difficulty concentrating, memory issues, or a feeling of mental cloudiness. Gut health is closely linked to brain health, and issues within the gut can manifest as cognitive symptoms such as brain fog. Difficulty concentrating, memory issues, and a general feeling of mental cloudiness can significantly impact your productivity and quality of life. Dr. Sauer recognizes the gut-brain connection and will work with you to optimize your gut health, potentially leading to improved mental clarity and cognitive function.

Skin problems

Conditions like acne, eczema, or rashes that persist despite various treatments. Skin problems can often be linked to gut health imbalances. Conditions such as acne, eczema, or persistent rashes may indicate underlying inflammation or immune dysregulation originating from the gut. Dr. Sauer takes a comprehensive approach, addressing gut health as a potential factor in skin issues and developing personalized treatment plans to support healthy skin.

Mood disorders

Frequent mood swings, anxiety, or depression. The gut-brain axis plays a crucial role in mental health, and imbalances in the gut can contribute to mood disorders. Frequent mood swings, anxiety, or depression may be linked to gut issues such as gut dysbiosis or inflammation. Dr. Sauer recognizes the impact of gut health on mood and will implement strategies to restore balance, potentially leading to improved emotional well-being.

Weight fluctuations

Unexplained weight gain or difficulty losing weight. Unexplained weight fluctuations, including unexplained weight gain or difficulty losing weight, can be frustrating and indicative of underlying gut health issues. Imbalances in gut bacteria, hormone levels, or nutrient absorption can all contribute to weight-related challenges. Dr. Sauer understands the complexities of gut health and will develop a personalized plan to support healthy weight management.

Joint pain

Soreness, stiffness, or swelling in the joints. Joint pain, including soreness, stiffness, or swelling, can be associated with gut issues and chronic inflammation. Inflammation originating from the gut can affect joints, leading to discomfort and reduced mobility. Dr. Sauer will explore the relationship between your gut health and joint pain, developing a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses the root causes and aims to reduce inflammation.

Chronic inflammation

Generalized inflammation in the body, which may manifest as various health issues. Chronic inflammation can result from imbalances in the gut and is linked to a wide range of health issues. Gut dysbiosis, leaky gut syndrome, or dietary factors can all contribute to chronic inflammation, which can manifest as symptoms in various parts of the body. Dr. Sauer understands the significance of chronic inflammation in gut health and will employ a multifaceted approach to reduce inflammation and promote healing throughout your body.
