Digestive Problems

Digestive problems such as constipation, heartburn, diarrhoea and bloating are very common. Around 40% of people have at least one digestive symptom at any one time, according to Dr Anton Emmanuel, consultant gastroenterologist at University College Hospital in London.

The most common digestive complaints are abdominal pain, indigestion, changes to bowel habits (constipation/diarrhoea) and heartburn. Most digestive problems arise as a result of our lifestyle choices, the food we eat and stress, and are usually treatable with adjustments to those same lifestyle choices and issues. The side effects to common medications such as aspirin, antibiotics and blood pressure regulators can actually upset your stomach and make the problems worse.

While many doctors will tell you that most digestive problems will get better on their own, for many people persistent symptoms should raise a red flag because a compromised digestive system could be the first sign of a serious illness and the start declining health. More serious gastrointestinal problems include the two forms of inflammatory bowel disease: Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. These conditions lead to severe bowel problems, abdominal pain and malnutrition. In some cases they can be debilitating and surgery may be required to repair the damage to the colon.

In the extensive Digestive Problems archive, you will learn about the common drugs that can wreak havoc upon your gut, in particular heartburn drugs, which have been shown to worsen symptoms in the long run. You will also uncover the best probiotics that can boost your natural immunity, as well as the foods that could help to keep those tummy upsets at bay.

Through dietary and lifestyle changes you will be able to combat the distressing symptoms of digestive discomfort. Good health starts in your gut and the Daily Health will show how to read the warning signs and what you can do to keep your gut healthy.
