What are digestive problems?

We speak of digestive disorders when various digestive processes do not work as they might normally. Complaints include heartburn, uncomfortable belching, flatulence, abdominal pain, diarrhoea, vomiting and constipation.

Normally, digestive complaints plague us only for a short time. However, there are some circumstances and also diseases that affect our digestion in such a way that it causes us persistent discomfort. Here it makes sense to look for the cause.

Where can the digestive problems come from?

Diet, lack of exercise, psychological stress situations can alone lead to a disorder in the gastrointestinal system. But food intolerances, allergies, medications and certain diseases such as Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis or irritable bowel syndrome can also throw your digestion out of balance.

What should I do if I suffer from digestive problems?

Since so many points pay into a well-functioning digestive system, the first thing to do is to discuss your circumstances, your daily routine and your eating habits. Book an appointment for this at one of our Avi Medical practices and we will be happy to take the time!

In the next step, further clarification of the cause should take place with sensible laboratory tests and imaging(ultrasound examination). Depending on the findings, it may also be necessary to consult a specialist in gastroenterology.
