The digestive system works with the body in order to break down and absorb nutrients, as well as move waste through the body. It plays an important role in a person’s health, and when the digestive system is functioning well, Glendora patients feel good.
What are Common Types of Digestive Disorders?
Most digestive disorders share a common set of symptoms, including stomach cramping, upset stomach, bloating, heartburn, diarrhea, vomiting, gas, and nausea. When these symptoms occur and last for a short period of time, patients may simply be suffering from a stomach virus.
However, when these symptoms persist and the patient does not see relief after several days or weeks, it may be time to seek the help of a general surgeon. A general surgeon is an expert in this region of the body and can help diagnose and treat the specific digestive disorder that is ailing a patient.
