Gastroenterology (from greek gaster ” stomach, belly”; enteron “gut” and logos “doctrine”) is a section of medicine about structure and functions of human digestive system in the conditions of norm and pathology, studying causes and mechanisms of development of various diseases of digestive organs, working out new methods of diagnostics, treatment and prophylaxis of these diseases.
Gastroenteric tract is the most complicated chemical laboratory where the food is crushed, mixes up with various digestive juices and gradually moves ahead from one section into another, staying in each of them as long as it is necessary for its digestion. Then the organism throws out everything that wasn’t used. Normal activity of gastoenteric tract is delivery of building material into all organs and tissues of organism which is being constructed and reconstructed till the end of its days, and also providing it with energetic material without which life is impossible.
The modern rhythm of life, permanent stress, improper feeding, unhealthy environment – all these factors affect our organism, including gastroenteric tract. The number of patients with chronic gastroenteric diseases is growing every year. Getting the disease into its chronic form is often caused by self-treatment which only aggravates the disease current, bringing just temporal improvement of the patient’s health condition.
