Gastrointestinal Disorders

Gastrointestinal disorders include such conditions as constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, anal fissures. Functional disorders are those in which the gastrointestinal (GI) tract looks normal but doesn't work properly. The Gastrointestinal problems can be treated by increasing the amount of fiber in food and by exercising regularly. Rapid Gastric Emptying syndrome occurs when food, especially sugar, moves too fast from the stomach to the duodenum and it is also caused by problems with the storage of food particles in the stomach and emptying of particles into the duodenum. Hemorrhoids are swollen veins in the lowest part of the rectum and anus. External hemorrhoids are under the skin around the anus, where there are many more pain-sensing nerves, so they tend to hurt as well as bleed. Hemorrhoids are mainly caused by buildup of pressure in the lower rectum and it can affect blood flow and make the veins swell.
