What are symptoms of dysbiosis?

Eva B. Cwynar, MD
Internal Medicine
When there is an imbalance of bacteria in the digestive tract, an overgrowth of yeast, or the presence of viruses or parasites in the intestines, they are described as being in a state of dysbiosis.

Some symptoms or warning signs of dysbiosis include:
  • Chronic unexplained fatigue
  • Leaky gut syndrome
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Acne, eczema, and other skin problems
  • Bad breath and gum disease
  • Chronic yeast problems and candida overgrowth
  • Acid reflux
  • Frequent colds, flus, and infections
The first step in treating dysbiosis is to see your doctor or health professional to determine which organisms are causing the dysbiotic condition and what the best treatment may be. Some people may be required to change their diet and lifestyle habits.
