How can a Gastroenterologist help you?

Since what you eat affects your whole body, your Gastroenterologist will ask you detailed questions about your symptoms before deciding how to proceed. They use a variety of non-surgical procedures to diagnose gastrointestinal problems like-
  • Endoscopy, which involves the use of a narrow flexible tube with a built-in video camera inserted into the intestinal tract, to visualise inside and effectively diagnose intestinal disorders.
  • Colonoscopy is used to detect colon cancer, colon polyps, etc.
  • To identify tumours or stones in the bile duct area, they use endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography(ERCP).
  • Sigmoidoscopy to evaluate blood loss or pain in the lower large bowel area.
  • If there is inflammation or fibrosis in the liver, they will biopsy it.
  • Capsule endoscopy & double-balloon enteroscopy to examine the small intestine.
Gastroenterologists may, however, refer the patient to a gastrointestinal surgeon if surgery is required.

Common illnesses treated by Gastroenterologists

Some of the common diseases treated by Gastroenterologists online are –
  • Celiac Disease Celiac disease is an acute sensitivity to gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley. When they consume gluten, the body’s immune system goes on the attack and ends up destroying the villi, the fingerlike protrusions in your small intestine that help absorb nutrients from food. This causes bloating, malnutrition, bowel damage, intestinal lymphoma etc. The only solution is to avoid those foods and instead consume brown rice, quinoa, lentils, soy flour, cornflour, etc.
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) IBS is a group of gastrointestinal conditions where one experiences a combination of frequent abdominal pain, bloating and cramps, diarrhoea or constipation. The cause of IBS is not known but the treatment of the symptoms is largely on diet and lifestyle changes such as eating low fat, high fibre meals and avoiding dairy products, alcohol, caffeine, etc. Probiotic yoghurt may also help relieve the symptoms.
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) GERD is when you have symptoms of acid reflux twice or more times a week. Acid reflux or heartburn occurs when stomach contents and acid spill over to the oesophagus causing a burning sensation and chest pain. If not treated soon, it might lead to damage of the oesophagus and other complications.
  • Gall Stones Gallstones happen when small lumps or obstacles form in the bile ducts or gall bladder. These can be as small as a sand grain or the size of a golf ball. This causes the gall bladder to not produce bile which aids in the digestion of fat. This happens when there’s too much cholesterol or waste in your bile. Medication can dissolve the stones, if not surgery is the way to go.
  • Crohn’s Disease Crohn’s disease is a chronic inflammatory disease that can affect any part of the digestive tract from mouth to anus. The symptoms include abdominal pain, diarrhoea, rectal bleeding, weight loss, and fever. Although there are some treatments, avoiding trigger foods like dairy products, carbonated beverages, alcohol, coffee, raw fruit and vegetables, red meat, and foods that are fatty, fried, spicy, or gas-producing can also help prevent flares.
  • Ulcerative Colitis Ulcerative Colitis is caused when the immune system mistakes the food for invaders and inflames the inner lining of the colon, rectum or both making you experience urgent bowel movements, pain with diarrhoea, blood in your stool, or abdominal cramps. Medication and diet changes are usually prescribed to handle UC. In extreme cases, they may suggest removing the colon altogether.
