GASTROINTESTINAL DISEASE CLINIC (GI)
The symptoms of a disorder of the digestive system can be difficult to identify, but they can lead to a variety of complications, such as liver failure, which is an often fatal condition. Fortunately, it is possible to take preventative measures against disorders of the digestive system and liver failure. It is very important to know what causes these diseases, and how they can be prevented.
As many as 50% of the global population may experience some form of digestive disorder in their lifetime.
There are several key factors which can affect the development of digestive disorders, including:
- genetics and family history of digestive disorders
- environment (especially pollution)
- medications (e.g. antibiotics)
- diseases, such as diabetes
One of the most effective ways to prevent digestive disorders is to maintain a healthy diet. Dietary factors are associated with a wide range of digestive disorders, including:
- peptic ulcers
- gallbladder disease
- irritable bowel syndrome
- inflammatory bowel disease
- colorectal cancer (e.g. Crohn's disease)
- liver disease (e.g. fatty liver disease)
- cardiovascular disease
The risk of developing digestive disorders can be reduced by following a healthy diet. A healthy diet is made up of all the nutrients needed to maintain good health. This includes proteins, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. The key to a healthy diet is to eat a wide variety of foods.
