DETROIT (WNEM) -

One in five Americans suffer from digestive issues, and a new report shows Detroit is the number one city in the country for tummy aches. 

The report comes from a study by Cara, an app that tracks your food and symptom diary. 

Researchers collected 1.2 million data points from more than 30,000 Americans who use the app. 

According to Cara, West Virginia leads all states with the worst digestive symptoms, followed by Missouri and Louisiana.
