What Is Gastrointestinal and Liver Treatment?

Gastrointestinal and Liver Treatment is a medical treatment concerned with the digestive system and its diseases. Gastroenterologists diagnose and treat the diseases and disorders of the esophagus, stomach, intestines, liver, biliary tract, and pancreas. 

What Are the Signs of Gastrointestinal Problems?

Gastrointestinal diseases affect the gastrointestinal (GI) tract from the mouth to the anus. There are two types: functional and structural. Some examples include nausea/vomiting, food poisoning, lactose intolerance, and diarrhea.

Some people experience minor digestive issues that increase in severity with time. In other cases, digestive discomfort happens quickly and stays consistent. Every person is unique, which is why the symptoms can vary from one person to the next.

The first signs of gastrointestinal issues often include one or more of these symptoms:

  • Nausea and/or vomiting
  • Pain in the abdominal area
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Bloating
  • Bleeding
  • Incontinence
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Weight loss or gain

What causes different types of Gastrointestinal disease?

  • Eating a diet low in fiber.
  • Not getting enough exercise.
  • Traveling or other changes in routine.
  • Eating large amounts of dairy products.
  • Stress.
  • Resisting the urge to have a bowel movement, possibly because of hemorrhoids.
  • Overusing anti-diarrheal medications that, over time, weaken the bowel muscle movements called motility.
  • Taking antacid medicines containing calcium or aluminum.
  • Taking certain medicines (especially antidepressants, iron pills, and strong pain medicines such as narcotics).
  • Pregnancy.

What Are the Signs of Liver Problems?

Your liver is your body’s second-largest organ (after the skin). It sits just under your ribcage on the right side and is about the size of a football. The liver separates nutrients and waste as they move through your digestive system. It also produces bile, a substance that carries toxins out of your body and aids digestion.

“Liver disease” refers to several conditions that can affect and damage your liver. Over time, liver disease can cause cirrhosis (scarring). As more scar tissue replaces healthy liver tissue, the liver can no longer function properly. Left untreated, liver disease can lead to liver failure and liver cancer.

Liver disease doesn’t always cause noticeable signs and symptoms. If signs and symptoms of liver disease do occur, they may include the following:

  • Skin and eyes that appear yellowish (jaundice)
  • Abdominal pain and swelling
  • Swelling in the legs and ankles
  • Itchy skin
  • Dark urine color
  • Pale stool color
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Loss of appetite
  • Tendency to bruise easily

What causes different types of liver disease?

Different types of liver disease result from various causes. Liver disease may result from:

  • Viral infections: Hepatitis A, hepatitis B, and hepatitis C are diseases caused by a viral infection.
  • Problems with your immune system: When your immune system mistakenly attacks your liver, it can cause autoimmune liver diseases. These include primary biliary cholangitis and autoimmune hepatitis.
  • Inherited diseases: Some liver problems develop because of a genetic condition (one you inherit from your parents). Inherited liver diseases include Wilson disease and hemochromatosis.
  • Cancer: When abnormal cells multiply in your liver, you may develop tumors. These tumors may be benign (noncancerous) or malignant (liver cancer).
  • Consuming too many toxins: Alcohol-related fatty liver disease is the result of alcohol use. Non-alcohol related fatty liver disease (NAFLD) results from consuming too much fat. NAFLD is becoming more common as rates of obesity and diabetes rise.

When Should I Get Treatments?

If you have any of the symptoms mentioned above, you should visit the Gastrointestinal and Liver Center. Specialists can check your conditions thoroughly and diagnose the causes.

Moreover, Gastrointestinal and Liver Center also handle other organ condition, such as bowel. Therefore, patients with bowel abnormality can get treated here too.

Symptoms of bowel disease include:

  • Abdominal pain and cramps
  • Excess gas
  • Bloating
  • Change in bowel habits such as harder, looser, or more urgent stools than average.
  • Alternating constipation and diarrhea
