Who is a gastroenterologist?

First of all, I would like to bust a myth over here according to which the gastrointestinal system only involves the stomach and the intestines. But the gastroenterology system is that system that involves the following:

  • Oesophagus

  • Stomach

  • Small Intestine

  • Colon

  • Rectum

  • Bile ducts

  • Pancreas

  • Gallbladder

Which symptoms indicate that a visit to a gastroenterologist is required?

Following symptoms should be treated as a “Red Alert Sign” as these should not be ignored at any cost:

  • Atypical Bowel Movements

  • Constipation:

The ideal bowel activity includes more than 3 bowel movements per week. If it is fewer than that, that one of the following issues could be held responsible:

    • Blockage

    • Neurological Issues

    • Dietary factors

    • Hormonal Imbalance

If you are having blood in your stool, then it could be because of many reasons. The most common among them are:

  • Anal Fissure

If heartburn is emerging as a usual phenomenon that is not normal and serious actions need to be taken against it. The constant heartburn indicates that you are down with GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Diseases)

  • If your age is more than 50 years

If you are more than 50 years of age, then you must consider undergoing a screening test as this age is quite common to suffer from Colorectal Cancer.

  • Pain in Abdomen

If after having each meal you suffer from intense pain in the abdomen, then it is not something that you can take as normal.

Certain elements make you unable to swallow things properly. Those conditions are never to be ignored and an immediate appointment with the reputed gastroenterologist should be made.
