Synopsis:
The gastrointestinal tract includes the stomach, intestines, and other organs related to digestion-the process by which food and drink are changed into molecules of nutrients that can be carried to the body's cells. Disorders that interfere with this process affect an estimated 60 to 70 million Americans and account for more than 48.3 million doctor visits every year. Gastrointestinal Diseases and Disorders Sourcebook, Fourth Edition provides readers with updated health information about the causes, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases and disorders affecting the esophagus, stomach, intestines, appendix, gall bladder, liver, and pancreas. It also describes how the gastrointestinal tract can be affected by food intolerances, infectious diseases, and various cancers. The structure and function of the digestive system, common diagnostic methods, medical treatments, surgical procedures, and current research initiatives are described. The book concludes with a glossary of related terms and directory of resources for further help and information. This book is divided into parts and chapters. Parts focus on broad areas of interest. Chapters are devoted to single topics within a part.
