Sudden weight gain or loss is a considerable drop, or increase, in weight that arises when not expecting to do so. Both unintentional weight reduction, as well as an increase in weight, can serve as a marker of a more serious underlying issue. It is a good idea to request a consultation with a gastrointestinal provider at GastroGroup & Endocenter to ensure that you get medical care so the root cause can be confirmed. To find treatment for unintended weight gain or loss in Louisiana, please request an appointment with our providers.

Both weight surges and decreases can stem from a few different causes. As a result, it is vital to talk with a gastrointestinal doctor so that they can detect and handle the problem. There are some common reasons why you could experience gain or loss of weight. Some digestive concerns that may be causing unintentional weight loss are:

  • Celiac disease
  • Specific medications
  • Stress or anxiety
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Chronic diarrhea

A number of gastrointestinal problems that may be leading to weight surges are:

  • IBS (irritable bowel syndrome)
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease
  • Intolerance to certain foods
  • Fewer than normal bowel movements
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Duodenal or gastric ulcers

For more in-depth details and to have your problems assessed, reach out to GastroGroup & Endocenter. Visit a gastroenterologist to allow them to guide you on the track to improved well-being so you can get back to your regular routine.

Unintentional weight fluctuations should be evaluated by one of our Louisiana digestive health specialists to confirm whether existing, severe issues, are present. One particular method to address these issues is to help your GI system and nutrition. This can involve trying to drink more water, opting for whole foods, eating high fiber foods, and eating fermented foods. It is a good idea to talk to a gastrointestinal doctor in the event that you’ve seen that your baseline weight has quickly fluctuated, to help your digestive health stay in good shape.

Unintentional weight loss and gain could be an unsettling issue. If you feel your weight has gotten to the point where it is unmanageable, contact GastroGroup & Endocenter to consult with a doctor who will partner with you to attain optimum health.
