Your gastrointestinal (GI) or digestive system is a series of hollow tubes and organs involved in the breakdown and absorption of nutrients from food.
The digestive system starts at your mouth and ends at the anus. The organs in between include the esophagus, stomach and small and large
intestines along with several organs such as the liver, gallbladder, and pancreas that produce digestive enzymes to aid in the process of breaking down food. Each of these organs is susceptible to a variety of medical conditions and diseases that disrupt normal digestion and interfere with your health.
There are many different conditions that affect the digestive system. Below is a list of common conditions. For more information about living with or treatment for a digestive disease, please contact us to schedule an appointment.
