Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)
Is a chronic digestive disorder characterized by the backflow of stomach acid into the esophagus. This causes symptoms like heartburn, regurgitation, chest pain, and difficulty swallowing. Various factors contribute to GERD, including a weakened lower esophageal sphincter (LES), obesity, certain foods, smoking, and pregnancy. Our treatment options are grounded in scientific research and proven efficacy, ensuring you receive the best care.
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
Is a term encompassing two common gastrointestinal disorders: Ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. Both conditions involve chronic inflammation of the digestive tract tissues. Ulcerative colitis typically involves sores and ulcers along the lining of the large intestine and rectum, whereas Crohn’s disease most commonly involves significant inflammation of the small intestine. IBD typically causes symptoms such as diarrhea, rectal bleeding, abdominal pain, weight loss, and fatigue.
A chronic digestive and immune disorder primarily impacting the small intestine, triggered by gluten consumption, leading to symptoms like diarrhea, weight loss, fatigue, anemia, and bloating. Untreated Celiac Disease can result in severe complications, including nutritional deficiencies, osteoporosis, and an elevated risk of other autoimmune disorders. Living with Celiac Disease requires careful attention to your diet and overall health.
A condition characterized by inflammation of the pancreas and can stem from various common causes. It can be acute, occurring suddenly, or chronic, developing gradually and worsening over time. Common symptoms of pancreatitis include abdominal pain, which can become more pronounced after eating, abdominal tenderness, and an upset stomach. Common causes of pancreatitis include heavy alcohol consumption, gallstones, high levels of triglycerides in the blood, and certain medications.
Belching, bloating, and flatulence
are typical gastrointestinal occurrences. Belching results from the accumulation of swallowed air in the stomach, which is typically a normal process but may become chronic due to dietary habits or underlying gastrointestinal conditions. Bloating, characterized by a sense of uncomfortable fullness in the upper abdomen, is often the result of gas or food buildup in the stomach. Flatulence, the normal process of passing rectal gas, can sometimes persist due to specific dietary choices or underlying digestive disorders.
