Pediatric Gastroenterology

Digestive disorders are common in children due to lack of Nutrition with the symptoms like abdominal pain etc. GIT and Brain are closely connected and functional conditions are due to a combination of extra sensitivity of the GI tract, with changes in the motility or movement of the digestive system. Our stomachs and intestines are moving food all the time, and some people feel this more intensely than other people. These conditions are common, sometimes run in families, and are usually found in individuals who are otherwise healthy. Children facing this problem mostly experience recurrent pain in the middle of the abdomen. When the abdominal pain or discomfort is relieved by stooling or is connected with a change in the frequency or consistency of the stool, we call that irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Treatments for functional gastrointestinal disorders differ based on the symptoms.

  • Bleeding from the gastrointestinal tract
  • Lactose intolerance
  • Food allergies or intolerances
  • Severe or complicated gastro esophageal reflux disease (reflux or GERD).
