Advances in Gastrointestinal Diseases

Short bowel syndrome (SBS)-associated intestinal failure is a highly disabling condition that impairs quality of life and social integration will be discussed in Gastroenterology conferences. Although the condition is not uniformly fatal, it might lead to serious, life-threatening complications. The basic goals of medical treatment are reflux to maintain electrolyte, fluid, and nutrient balances and to make modifications in disease management in order to avoid side effects. Various definitions have been proposed for SBS and intestinal failure within the medical literature, but many focus on different aspects of the conditions, leading to confusion. Gastrointestinal disorders encompass Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, celiac disease, diverticulitis, irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, diarrhea, gastritis and gastroesophageal reflux, food allergies, parasites, dysbiosis, and a number of less common entities. Patients may present with abdominal pain, cramps, gas, bloating, food intolerances, or changes in bowel habits. There are often additional symptoms such as fatigue, muscle and joint pains, headaches, memory and other cognitive problems, depression, insomnia and reduced libido.
