Gastrointestinal Conditions Treatment in Hyderabad

Gastrointestinal Illness

Whatever we eat needs to be broken down into simpler substances for the body to use and the nutrients from simpler substances need to be absorbed by the intestines so that we get energy and stay healthy. Digestion and absorption are two essential biological processes that take place in the gastrointestinal tract. They go about seamlessly but sometimes they become more complex, get impacted, and make a person sick. At some point in our lives, we may fall sick due to gastrointestinal conditions. Gastrointestinal conditions refer to the illnesses, disorders, or diseases affecting any part of the digestive system. With Gastroenterology Treatment in Hyderabad at Sree Nandaka Advanced Surgery Clinic one can correct all their digestive issues with expert treatments.

A digestive/gastrointestinal system comprises the mouth, oesophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine (colon), rectum, and anus. The digestion process is even incomplete with the healthy functioning of the liver, pancreas, and gallbladder. A gastrointestinal condition can be a problem with any of these organs. It can happen due to many reasons ranging from genetics to lifestyle. Thankfully, gastrointestinal conditions are treatable with the help of gastroenterologists and Best Doctors For Digestive Disorders Treatment in Hyderabad at Sree Nandaka Advanced Surgery Clinic.

Some common Gastrointestinal Conditions

  • Defecation problem- Constipation is one of the common gastrointestinal complaints. It is the unsatisfactory passing out of stools with either infrequent hard stools, trouble in passing stools, straining during bowel movements, or a feeling that the bowel is not completely emptied. Laxatives and stool softeners can help relieve constipation. For constipation treatment in Hyderabad visit Sree Nandaka Advanced Surgery Clinic.
  • Acid Reflux, heartburn, GERD (Gastro-oesophageal Reflux Disease)- Acid reflux is a gastrointestinal condition where there is regurgitation (backflow) of stomach contents including the acid. It can be acute, occasional, or chronic and it can lead to a burning sensation in the chest behind the breastbone- called heartburn. GERD is a chronic condition where the patient after having food and even on an empty stomach feels acid coming upwards from their stomach into the chest and oesophagus. GERD is manageable with medications and lifestyle modifications but if not, surgery is needed to strengthen the barrier between the stomach and oesophagus.  For best Acid Reflux or GERD treatment in Hyderabad visit Sree Nandaka Advanced Surgery Clinic.
  • Bloating, Belching, and Flatulence- Bloating is a sense of fullness in the upper abdomen due to gas and/or food accumulation. Belching is the process where swallowed air builds up in the stomach and either belches back or passes out of the stomach into the intestines and finally passes as rectal gas. The passing of rectal gas is called flatulence. This gas is usually a mixture of the swallowed air and gas produced by colon bacteria's action on undigested carbohydrates. It can get trapped in any part of the abdomen and cause pain and discomfort. Dietary strategies, lifestyle changes, and medications can help.
  • Functional Abdominal Pain Syndrome- It is a gastrointestinal disorder where there is frequent abdominal pain. It is usually caused by the alteration in the brain-gut axis and the nervous system's ability to regulate the pain signals of the gastrointestinal tract. Those who have recurrent infections of the gastrointestinal tract, have had multiple abdominal surgeries, repeated abdominal injuries, and have records of physical violence or sexual abuse usually suffer from this abdominal pain.
  • Acute/Chronic Diarrhoea- Diarrhoea is a gastrointestinal condition where the patient frequently passes out loose, watery stools and even experiences abdominal cramps, nausea, fever, vomiting, urgency, and fatigue. Acute diarrhoea is usually caused by a bacterial infection or viral gastroenteritis. Chronic diarrhoea can be due to inflammatory bowel disease- Ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease, malabsorption of fats, or even colon cancer/polyps. For more details on abdominal pain treatment in Hyderabad get in touch with a stomach doctor at Sree Nandaka Advanced Surgery Clinic.
  • Biliary tract disorders, Gallbladder disorders, Gallstone Pancreatitis- Gallbladder stones are extremely common gastrointestinal disorders that can affect the production and transportation of the bile juice made by the liver for the digestion of fatty foods. They are formed by the build-up of cholesterol and/or bile pigment in the gallbladder or the bile ducts of the liver. Gallstone pancreatitis is a life-threatening condition where the gallstone blocks the pancreatic duct, thereby making the pancreas inflamed.
  • Indigestion treatment in Hyderabad /Dyspepsia- People with indigestion usually experience fullness while having a meal and are overly full after a meal or/and epigastric pain/ burning. Antacids, H2 receptor antagonists, prokinetics, and protein pump inhibitors can provide relief.
  • Peptic Ulcer Disease – It is the gastrointestinal condition where an ulcer (open sore) forms due to acids in the stomach or duodenum, mostly because of Helicobacter pylori infection. It is treatable with medications.
  • Rectal problems- These include haemorrhoids, anal abscess or fistula, anal fissure, rectal pain, faecal incontinence, and pruritus ani.
  • Coeliac disease treatment in Hyderabad- It is a gastrointestinal condition, an autoimmune disease where the gut cells get attacked by the immune system cells upon intake of gluten.  

Causes of Gastrointestinal Conditions

Gastrointestinal conditions have many potential underlying causes. In some cases, it’s not possible to pinpoint the direct underlying cause of gastrointestinal conditions. Some common causes include:

  • Bad lifestyle- This includes smoking, having an unhealthy diet, stress, not drinking enough water, lack of exercise, alcohol and drug abuse, and sleep deprivation. Dehydration leads to constipation. A low-fibre diet results in constipation, piles, diverticulitis, and more while intake of a lot of high-fat dairy products may lead to inflammation of the digestive system and should be avoided if having Inflammatory Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Crohn’s disease. Stress and anxiety can ultimately lead to IBS while an inactive lifestyle puts an individual at risk of diarrhoea, constipation, and stomach pain.
  • Predisposed genetic conditions- Genetics have a major role in deciding whether one is likely to get sick or not. It is one of the unavoidable causes of gastrointestinal conditions like Celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, and Ulcerative Colitis.
  • Environmental factors- An individual’s place of living or the environment in which the individual remains exposed also can be the culprit for some gastrointestinal conditions. Gastrointestinal infections can be caused because of viruses, bacteria, and parasites in the environment. Other gastrointestinal conditions can be caused by exposure to a polluted environment, toxins, chemicals, or radiation.
  • Aging- Age is another unavoidable cause of gastrointestinal conditions such as problems with gut motility and digestion and acid reflux. That’s because, when we get older our digestive glands naturally have reduced activity. Aging can even increase the risk of gastrointestinal cancers.
