Answers to Common Digestive Health Questions

Premier Health providers answer frequently asked questions about digestive health.

How can an unhealthy bacteria balance present itself in a person’s health?

Bacteria that lives in our gut plays a major role in our immune system, our digestion and our bowel movements, Premier Physician Network (PPN) physicians say.

When we have an unhealthy balance in our gut bacteria, it can present itself by causing the body to have diarrhea, constipation, and a lower immunity to stomach viruses.

Talk to your doctor for more information about how unhealthy gut bacteria can present itself.
