Join us on February 21 at 2 PM ET as Tom Fabian, Ph.D., CNTP, explains how GI-MAP™ testing can help you demystify the misconceptions related to bloating and distension.

Abdominal bloating and distension are highly prevalent symptoms associated with a wide range of gastrointestinal conditions. Emerging research is yielding surprising new insights into the pathophysiology underlying bloating and distension, including altered interactions among the microbiome, dietary factors, the immune system, and the neuroendocrine system.

This emerging understanding not only poses a direct challenge to some of the long-held assumptions about the causes of bloating and distension but also provides new opportunities for gaining important clinical insights from GI-MAP testing that allow for improved, targeted treatment approaches for these common symptoms.

Our friends at Integrative Practitioner will host Dr. Fabian on February 21, 2023, at 2 PM ET for this live presentation.
