For the body to feel healthy, the digestive tract must function optimally. Everyone has digestive problems from time to time—an upset stomach, vomiting, gas, heartburn, bloating, irritable bowel, or constipation. Many digestive problems may be uncomfortable or embarrassing, but they are often not serious and rarely do they last long. Many times, digestive problems are caused by food intolerances, contaminated foods, viral illnesses such as the flu, menstruation or pregnancy, or side effects from medications or supplements. However, common symptoms may sometimes be a sign of a more serious digestive problem.

Each year, millions of Americans are diagnosed with digestive disorders. Talk with your doctor about your concerns. Understanding the cause of your digestive problem requires a thorough and accurate medical history and physical examination. Some patients may need to undergo more extensive diagnostic evaluations, including lab tests, endoscopic procedures and imaging techniques – all of which can be performed at Meriter’s Digestive Health Center.
