Bloating is the #1 condition we treat at modrn med, you are in good hands

What is bloating?

It can mean a lot of things to different people. What we are referring to is an increase in the amount of gas in the gastrointestinal tract or a feeling of distention (feels like your stomach is pushing out due to gas build up). 

There are many causes for bloating so our first job is to figure out what is causing your bloating. 


Common causes of bloating

  • SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth)

  • IBS

  • Anxiety

  • Increase in visceral hypersensitivity 

  • Overeating

  • Infections

  • Eating too many gas producing foods

  • Malabsorption of nutrients 

  • Motility disorders

  • Endometriosis

  • Celiac disease

  • More


We ensure that our patients go through comprehensive testing to rule out any other causes of gastrointestinal symptoms.


Tests may include: 

  • Stool tests for infections or inflammation

  • Lactulose breath test for small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO)

  • Blood work to look at inflammatory markers, micronutrients, thyroid issues and more

  • Imaging studies

  • Motility studies and more  

Tips to reduce bloating

Dr. Mary is one of the nicest doctors I've met. I've been dealing with GI (SIBO) issues for a really long time. It's been a couple of weeks since I started my treatment and I've already noticed a difference - my bowel movements, sleep and energy levels have improved drastically. I love the fact that she took time to hear me out and then suggested a treatment plan. If you've been dealing with symptoms that other doctors may have ignored, please meet with Dr. Mary, your body will thank you and it's a blessing to have a doctor listen to all your concerns and treat the entire body as whole. She's kind, caring and knowledgable. She has helped me develop a healthy relationship with food and my body. Thank you, Dr.Mary for being accessible
