The Gastroenterological Conditions We Treat
Our gastroenterologists treat conditions impacting your digestive health. Our patients often experience some loss of enjoyment in life. Perhaps you have too. Maybe you can’t enjoy the same foods you use to, or maybe you’re suffering from consistent pain or irregular bowel movements. We can accurately diagnose your condition and treat it to restore normalcy to your life. Some of the conditions we treat include:
Abdominal Pain: Abdominal pain isn’t a digestive disease, but a symptom. However, it is sometimes an accurate indication of an underlying issue. We can help determine what causes your abdominal pain, especially if it is chronic and perpetual. Our gastroenterologists then devise a competent and effective treatment plan for whatever is ailing you. Contact us if you’ve experienced abdominal pain for weeks or months. Make sure to visit the emergency room if the pain becomes severe.
Autoimmune Diseases: When an autoimmune disease originates in the liver, it can cause a chain reaction impacting your entire digestive system. Our medical team understands the diseases we treat and how to relieve the symptoms our patients face each day. Some common instances of autoimmune diseases include autoimmune hepatitis, primary biliary cirrhosis, and primary sclerosing cholangitis.
Chronic Constipation: Like abdominal pain, general constipation can be a symptom of an underlying condition if it becomes chronic. For instance, a stool frequency of less than three per week lasting several months is considered chronic. We can help determine whether your chronic constipation is a result of a severe illness or whether more straightforward solutions will resolve the issue.
Celiac Disease: Celiac disease is a common digestive and autoimmune disorder damaging the lining of the small intestine when individuals consume food containing gluten. Bread and other grains are problematic to those who have celiac disease because the damage makes it harder for patients to absorb nutrients like fat, calcium, iron, and folate. We can help treat the illness.
Chronic Diarrhea: We understand the embarrassment and inconvenience those who suffer from constant diarrhea experience, and our gastroenterologists want to help. Frequently, this condition is related to ulcerative colitis, Chron’s disease, or irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). We can help you get to the bottom of the situation.
Colon Cancer: Colon cancer is a severe condition, and the second-leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. However, it is one of the most preventative forms of cancer and very treatable. We highly-recommend all residents over 50 years old be screened for colon cancer, especially if you have a family history of the disease or drastic changes in bowel behavior.
Crohn’s Disease: Crohn’s Disease impacts the small intestine, colon, or both. It is a chronic disease without a cure. Those who suffer from it often experience discomfort and a changed social life. Fortunately, our medical staff can treat the condition and allow patients to live a healthier life.
Diverticular Disease: Diverticular disease is three conditions. They involve the development of sacs or pockets in the walls of the colon. Diverticulitis is common but infringes on your ability to eat foods and enjoy life the way you should. Our gastroenterologists in Denver, CO can help you get better.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome: IBS is a widespread disease, but that doesn’t mean those who suffer from it are any less impacted by it. The symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome include cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, gas, diarrhea, and constipation. Many of our patients report a considerable lessening of their symptoms after visiting our gastroenterologists, so contact us today.
