When to check Gastroenterology?

Here are some common reasons to schedule a consultation with one of our gastroenterologists:

  • Persistent Abdominal Pain: If you experience persistent abdominal pain, especially if it is severe, recurrent, or accompanied by other gastrointestinal symptoms such as changes in bowel habits.
  • Persistent Digestive Problems: If you have ongoing pain or symptoms like heartburn, indigestion, gas, bloating, or changes in bowel habits.
  • Gastrointestinal Bleeding: If you notice any signs of bleeding in your stool, whether visible or detected through lab tests, it should be evaluated by a gastroenterologist.
  • Changes in Bowel Habits: If you experience significant changes in your bowel habits, such as persistent diarrhea, prolonged constipation, or changes in stool shape.
  • Symptoms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease: If you have symptoms like abdominal pain, chronic diarrhea, unexplained weight loss, or suspect conditions such as Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis.
  • Esophageal Diseases: If you have issues like chronic heartburn, difficulty swallowing, or chest pain, a gastroenterologist can evaluate potential esophageal disorders.
