Let's understand common Disorders of the stomach:

Gastritis: Inflammation (swelling) of the mucosal lining of the stomach is called gastritis. The most common cause of gastritis is the use of aspirin for a long duration of time and the ingestion of alcoholic beverages. Symptoms include a feeling of fullness, nausea, anorexia (reduced appetite), and pain in the upper abdominal region. Reducing stomach acid is the first and foremost step to treat gastritis. This can be achieved by taking antacids and other proton pump inhibitors. Individuals suffering from gastritis are advised to eat food at regular intervals. The foods which can cause stomach discomfort and flatulence (mostly cruciferous vegetables) are avoided. High-fat foods, heavily spiced foods, and strong flavoring compounds are also restricted.

Peptic Ulcers: A bacteria, called Helicobacter pylori is usually responsible for causing sores/ulcers in the mucosal lining of the esophagus/stomach/duodenum. Along with the infection by H. pylori, the usage of a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSIAD) can also significantly increase the risk of the formation of peptic ulcers and can cause ulcer bleeding. The treatment includes prescribing antibiotics to kill infections along with sucralfate/carafate which aids in coating the mucosal lining and reduces the formation of ulcers. The patient should take three regular meals and in-between snacks with no added spices and irritants.

Correct diagnosis: Accurate diagnosis is the key to treating gastroenterology diseases. Sprint Medical E-clinic and online doctor consultation with gastroenterologist and stomach specialist doctor will help address diseases of the stomach, oesophagus, small intestine, rectum, colon, bile ducts, liver, and gallbladder. Gastroenterology specialists also offer surgical advice and recommend patients to gastroenterologist surgeons.

Disorders of the Intestines: The top function of the intestine is to digest and absorb nutrients and water from the food passing through its lumen. Disorders associated with the intestine results in impaired function and can significantly affect the absorption of nutrients from the food. Common problems with frequency and consistency of bowel movements are:

  • Crohn’s Disease: It is a long-term (chronic) inflammatory disorder of the intestine. It affects the GIT right from the oral cavity and extends to the rectum. In this disease, the lumen of the intestine decreases. This results in slower movement of food which causes cramping/abdominal discomfort when the food is ingested. Other symptoms include fever, weight loss, nausea, mouth ulcers, anal fissures, vomiting, etc. Chronic watery diarrhea may occur resulting from bile salt malabsorption, microbial overgrowth, and ulceration. Anti-inflammatory and anti-diarrheal medications are mostly prescribed. A low fiber diet with high protein and energy is suggested for such patients along with a limited intake of fat.

  • Diverticulosis: Diverticulosis is a medical condition characterized by the development of various small pouches (diverticulums) in the mucosal lining of the colon due to chronic constipation. Most people suffering from this disease do not show any symptoms. The main goal of treating diverticulosis is to cure constipation. For this reason, a high fiber diet accompanied by adequate intake of liquids is suggested for such individuals.

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS): IBS is a functional bowel disorder characterized by discomfort or pain in the abdominal region along with various other symptoms such as diarrhea, constipation (or episodes of both), and flatulence. Treatment of IBS depends on the symptoms. Offending foods that can trigger diarrhea or constipation should be identified and avoided. The most common foods identified as a causative agent for IBS are lactose (milk and milk products) and gluten (wheat and wheat products). Treatment of IBS aims to relieve symptoms. Usually, a high fiber diet is suggested to cure constipation and certain lifestyle modifications (such as regular exercise) is advised before prescribing any drug to the patient.

  • Ulcerative Colitis: It is a form of inflammatory bowel disease that causes ulcers and inflammation in the inner lining of the colon and rectum. Major symptoms include abdominal pain, pus and mucus in stools, bloody diarrhea, anemia, and anorexia. Treatment of ulcerative colitis focuses on reducing inflammation. Probiotic bacteria are reported to provide relief in this disease by reducing inflammation and increasing the number of anti-inflammatory molecules in the gut. Medications may be prescribed to reduce inflammation. A low fiber diet is needed to minimize fecal volume as excessive fecal matter can create an obstruction. Red meat, dairy products, artificial sweeteners, and caffeine consumption is restricted.
