What effect does a colonoscopy have on the gut flora?
Colonoscopy, better known as colonoscopy, is now recommended to all people over the age of 50 as a preventive examination to detect any changes in the (large) intestinal tissue. In order to have a really free bowel, appropriate preparation is required, among other things in the form of a thorough bowel cleansing.
The condition of the intestine can only be reliably assessed when it is empty, and a laxative (lavage) is taken with sufficient liquid to empty the intestine completely and rinse it thoroughly. However, colon cleansing temporarily leads to a significant change in the natural intestinal flora. This is reduced to less than one-thirtieth during colonoscopy preparation.
Immediately after a colonoscopy, the intestine may be susceptible to new foreign germs due to the reduced competitive pressure. This is noticeable in up to 80% of people after a colonoscopy: Almost half experience bloating, followed by diarrhoea, abdominal pain and constipation.
However, the fact that unwanted intestinal inhabitants such as putrefactive germs and co are also flushed out offers the intestine and its microbiome the opportunity to rid itself of old "burdens" and start anew. Ideally with as many useful bacteria as possible, so that undesirable germs no longer have room to settle.
