Most digestive diseases are very complex, with subtle symptoms. The causes of many digestive disorders remain unknown --they may be inherited or they may develop over time from a combination of factors such as stress, fatigue, diet or smoking. The abuse of alcohol creates the greatest risk of all for digestive diseases.
An accurate diagnosis can often only be made by completing a thorough medical history and physical examination. Some patients may need to undergo more extensive diagnostic evaluations, including lab tests, endoscopic procedures and imaging techniques to discover the source and best treatment for their condition.
