Treatment for Gastrointestinal Diseases
What are Gastrointestinal Diseases?
Gastrointestinal, or GI, diseases occur within the GI tract. The GI tract is the part of the digestive system that helps with the processing of nutrients and the passing of waste out of your body. Gastrointestinal issues are common, and the symptoms of these types of diseases are similar. Seek immediate medical attention if you experience:
- Abdominal bloating
- Severe abdominal pain
- Bloody diarrhea
- Fever and chills
- Severe nausea, uncontrollable vomiting, or vomiting blood
- Inability to swallow or have bowel movement
Here is a list of the 6 most common GI diseases.
Gallstones are hard objects that form in your gallbladder as a result of high cholesterol, waste in your bile, or your gallbladder not functioning properly. About one million Americans develop gallstones annually.
- Sharp pain in your upper-right abdomen
