Are you feeling bloated and can’t figure out why? Low thyroid hormones can be to blame! Hypothyroidism can have a significant impact on the gut microbiome, digestion and nutrient absorption. In this post, I’m going to share with you how hypothyroidism affects your gut and how it can cause bloating.
Hypothyroidism, or an under active thyroid, is a condition that affects your body’s hormone production. With under active thyroid everything else in your body slows down as thyroid controls lots of processes and other systems, including your gut. One of the most common symptoms associated with hypothyroidism is weight gain and bloating.
