When to See a Gastroenterologist

A gastroenterologist can be consulted if you experience digestive problems. Symptoms usually include chronic pain in the abdominal area. Bloating, gas and diarrhea are other common digestive disorders that may require evaluation by a gastroenterologist.

Mild symptoms such as nausea, stomach upset, etc. may also indicate a larger problem. For instance, a stomach upset may uncommonly indicate malabsorption disorders such as celiac disease or lactose intolerance.

By identifying these disorders, future damage to the digestive system can be prevented. Some patients may also observe extreme symptoms such as blood in their stools. It is advisable to consult a gastroenterologist for any new symptoms of digestive disorders.
