Gastrointestinal (GI) diseases affect the digestive system, which includes the oesophagus, stomach, small and large intestines, liver, gallbladder, and pancreas. These conditions
can vary widely in their causes, symptoms, and severity. Here are some common gastrointestinal diseases:

  1. Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD): A chronic condition where stomach acid flows back into the oesophagus, causing heartburn, regurgitation, and sometimes chest pain.
  2. Peptic Ulcer Disease: Open sores that develop on the lining of the stomach, small intestine, or oesophagus, often caused by infection with Helicobacter pylori bacteria or long-term use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
  3. Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS): A functional disorder of the digestive tract characterized by abdominal pain, bloating, diarrhea, and/or constipation. The exact cause of IBS is unknown.
  4. Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD): Chronic inflammatory conditions of the digestive tract, including Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, which cause inflammation and damage to the gastrointestinal lining.
  5. Celiac Disease: An autoimmune disorder triggered by gluten consumption, leading to damage to the small intestine’s lining, malabsorption of nutrients, and various gastrointestinal symptoms.
  6. Gastroenteritis: Inflammation of the stomach and intestines, often caused by viral or bacterial infections. Symptoms include diarrhoea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and fever.
  7. Diverticulitis: Inflammation or infection of small pouches (diverticula) that develop in the colon wall, causing abdominal pain, fever, and changes in bowel habits.
  8. Gallstones: Hardened deposits that form in the gallbladder, often composed of cholesterol or bilirubin. Gallstones can cause abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and jaundice if they block the bile ducts.
  9. Pancreatitis: Inflammation of the pancreas, which can be acute or chronic and is often caused by gallstones, alcohol consumption, or certain medications. Symptoms include severe abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting.
  10. Hepatitis: Inflammation of the liver, which can be caused by viral infections (such as hepatitis A, B, or C), autoimmune conditions, alcohol abuse, or toxic substances. Symptoms include jaundice, fatigue, abdominal pain, and nausea.
