Who is a Gastroenterologist?

A gastroenterologist is a specialist who treats GI diseases in both men and women. The function of the GI system is to digest and move food, absorb nutrients and remove waste from your body. The gastroenterologist is trained to diagnose and treat any disorder related to this system. 

Here is a list of procedures performed by the Gastroenterologist to detect the nature of the disorder and prepare an effective treatment plan:

  • Endoscopic ultrasounds

  • Colonoscopies

  • Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography

  • Sgmoidoscopies

  • Liver biopsies

  • Capsule endoscopies

  • Double balloon enteroscopy

Which conditions do gastroenterologists treat?

These specialists treat a wide range of conditions that are affecting the GI tract. This may include:

  • IBS

  • hepatitis C

  • polyps, or growths, which typically occur in the large intestine

  • jaundice, or yellowing of the skin

  • haemorrhoids

  • Ulcers

  • pancreatitis, or a rare disease-causing inflammation of the pancreas

  • colon cancer

  • acid reflux

  • bloody stool

  • IBS

When to visit a gastroenterologist?

Generally, the primary care clinicians refer the patient to visit a gastroenterologist when they observe some gastro related symptoms. There are certain conditions for which your gastroenterologist may recommend you to see the expert:

  • Difficulty in swallowing food or drinks

  • Unexplained blood in your stool

  • Experiencing abdominal pain

People above the age of 50 years should visit a gastroenterologist for preventive care. This is because they are more likely to develop major gastro problems like colon cancer. So it will be better to get yourself screened at the right time.
