About Gastroenterology and Gastroenterologists

Gastroenterology is a branch of internal medicine. It focuses on the study of the digestive system and its disorders. The digestive system includes the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, along with the liver, gallbladder, and pancreas.

Gastroenterology focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions such as ulcers, acid reflux, chronic diarrhoea, constipation, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), pancreatitis, celiac disease, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and other issues such as gastrointestinal bleeding.

A gastroenterologist is a medical doctor who specializes in diagnosing and treating diseases of the digestive system.

Gastroenterologists also perform procedures such as colonoscopies and endoscopies to diagnose and treat digestive conditions.

Lab Tests Prescribed by Gastroenterologists

Gastroenterologists usually use the following lab tests to diagnose and assess digestive health conditions: 

  • Stool Tests - To check for the presence of abnormal cells, parasites, or bacteria that can cause illness.

  • Blood Tests - To check for bacterial or parasitic infection, celiac disease, lactose intolerance, the cause of diarrhoea, etc. Blood tests may also be prescribed to rule out other serious diseases.

  • Imaging Tests - Tests such as X-rays, computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), are used to create images of the inside of the body. The results can help diagnose problems such as tumors and blockages in the digestive system.

  • Endoscopic Tests - In this test, an endoscope (a thin, flexible tube with a light and camera at the end) is inserted into the digestive tract to visualize the inside of the digestive system and detect any abnormalities.

Lab test results allow gastroenterologists to diagnose and monitor diseases such as infections, inflammatory bowel disease, celiac disease, hepatitis, or pancreatitis. They also help identify potential food intolerances or allergies.

Visiting a Gastroenterologist Regularly

You do not need to visit a gastroenterologist regularly unless you are experiencing any symptoms of digestive distress or you have a digestive condition that requires treatment and monitoring.

If you are experiencing symptoms such as diarrhoea, bloating, constipation, abdominal pain, or rectal bleeding, visit a gastroenterologist for prompt evaluation and treatment.

If you have already been diagnosed with a digestive condition, visit your doctor at regular intervals as advised by the doctor for monitoring and treating your condition.

Further, if you have a family history of digestive problems such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) or colon cancer, regular screenings and visits to the gastroenterologist can help detect and treat these conditions early.
