Gastroenterology

Gastroenterology is the specialty focusing on diagnosing and treating the illnesses affecting the digestive system, including the liver and the pancreas.

Most of these illnesses can be diagnosed and, in  some cases even treated, by way of an endoscopic investigation.

On the other hand, subtle intestine flora changes (microbiome) or subtle integrity changes occurred in the intestine mucosa, are disorders that make a patient prone to a wide range of illnesses: inflammatory intestinal diseases, food intolerance, allergies, fatty liver disease, mellitus diabetes or neuropsychological disorders.

 

These initial changes can be detected and tackled in their early stages, if the right measures are taken.
