Digestive Disorders

Digestive diseases are disorders of the digestive tract, which is sometimes called the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. In digestion, food and drink are broken down into small parts (called nutrients) that the body can absorb and use as energy and building blocks for cells. The gastrointestinal system plays an essential role in your overall health. Often, imbalances in the system lead to symptoms elsewhere in the body.
