In brief: Gut problems

Broadly speaking, digestive disease involves any problem of the gut (esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon, rectum, appendix) & organs connected to it (pancreas, gallbladder/biliary tree, liver, salivary glands).
Symptoms include: indigestion, abdominal bloating, fullness, diarrhea/constipation, GI bleeding, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting due to ischemia, infection, inflammation, blockages.

I agree with Dr. Cattano's answer. It would be helpful if the Inquirer would be more specific about his digestive disease, such as symptoms, duration, acute or chronic, nature, family history, medications, other medical issues, etc.
