THESE 6 Drugs Are Causing IBS?!
If you have irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), you already know you would do just about anything NOT to have it.
That’s why you’ve given up inflammatory foods… drink plenty of water… and never miss your evening walks.
But as it turns out, there’s another factor to consider when it comes to your tummy troubles
New research shows that six drugs can accelerate your IBS symptoms.
And you could be taking them RIGHT NOW.
Your microbiome is that collection of mostly bacteria in your gut that have power effects on your gut health… especially when it comes to IBS.
Now we know that nearly half of all common drugs have a serious impact on your gut health.
And six of these can WREAK HAVOC.
A new study presented at The United European Gastroenterology conference took a close look at over 2,000 stool samples from both healthy people and folks with irritable bowel syndrome or inflammatory bowel syndrome.
Those stool samples showed just how devastating drugs can be to your microbiome.
Researchers logged which drugs people were taking. They found that 18 out of 41 common classes of drugs significantly affected the microbiome.
Notice that it is classes of drugs… not individual drugs!
The drugs with the biggest impact were:
- Proton pump inhibitors
- And the diabetes drug metformin.
This interruption of gut bacteria doesn’t just impact folks with IBS. Studies show a messed-up microbiome can lead to weight-grain, heart attacks, poor blood sugar control, and cancer.
That’s why it’s so important to talk to you doctor about why you’re taking a drug before you agree to take it.
And if you have IBS and are taking one of these drugs, call you doctor to discuss how to get off of them.
P.S. Before I sign off, I just wanted to wish you a very happy Thanksgiving. I hope you’ll spend today surrounded by family and loved ones, and giving thanks for all the blessings we have in life. Just go easy on that pumpkin pie!
