The branch of medicine focused on the digestive system and its disorders.
This can include conditions of specific organs within the system, but may also relate to secondary illnesses that indirectly effect digestion and the absorption of nutrients.
Problems with digestion and nutrient absorption can be mechanical or function based. This means that issues in one part of the digestive tract can be affecting overall gut health, but that organ dysfunction or chronic illness may be impacting the symptoms that are expressed.
A number of different conditions or diseases can affect the digestive tract and have an impact on digestion:
As many as 70,000 new cases of IBD are diagnosed
in the United States each year.
Many diseases are included under inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), with two of the most common being ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn's disease (CD).
Ulcerative colitis involves inflammation of the large intestine while Crohn's disease can cause inflammation in any part of the digestive tract. The exact cause of IBD is unknown. However, primary risk factors for ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease include immune system dysfunction, genetics and age.
The typical age of onset for both UC and Crohn's disease is between 15 and 30 years old. Symptoms of IBD vary depending on the location and severity of inflammation, but may include diarrhea, bleeding ulcers, stomach pain, cramping and bloating.
Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis can often require surgery to remove or repair damaged sections of the bowels or to remove obstructions. Early immunology treatment can help patients stay in remission. Therapeutic options depend upon the disease location, severity and complications.
Crohn's disease can be both painful and debilitating, and sometimes may lead to life-threatening complications. While there's no known cure for Crohn's disease, therapies can greatly reduce the impact of symptoms and even bring about long-term remission.
In general, the more of the colon that's affected, the worse the symptoms will be. In severe ulcerative colitis cases, people may experience diarrhea 10 to 20 times per day. The disease can also cause other problems such as joint pain, eye problems or liver disease. While it has no known cure, digestive health treatments can greatly reduce the impact of symptoms of the disease and even bring about long-term remission.
For some, Hepatitis C is an acute illness. However, for more than half of people who become infected, the virus is a chronic (long lasting) infection. People with chronic Hepatitis C often have no symptoms and don't feel sick. When symptoms do appear, they are often a sign of advanced liver disease. There is no vaccine for Hepatitis C, although, many are cured with treatments.
