Project Description

Integrated Services for Managing IBS, IBD, and Celiac Sprue

Welcome to the GastroWellness clinic for individuals with chronic, nuisance symptoms of abdominal discomfort, gas, fullness, bloating, cramping, altered bowel habits, or things just don’t feel right. Is there a problem with gut flora, intestinal motility, or do you have an ulcer or intestinal inflammation? Could this be something more serious? These are important questions and knowing what is happening in our bodies can be confusing.

Top Conditions Treated

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
  • Celiac Disease

When It’s Time to Come See Us

So why do we highlight IBS, IBD, and Celiac Sprue in this section? Most individuals are told they have “IBS” long before anyone finally does a serious evaluation to understand the true cause. IBS is a diagnosis that should be given only after thorough testing for other possible causes. Any individual with a history of unusual gastrointestinal symptoms should undergo a medical work up. It is important to remember that inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis) and Celiac Sprue (gluten allergy) can cause significant harm to the body and can initially appear to be IBS.

In the early stages, IBD and Celiac disease cause mild abdominal pain, food intolerance, gas/bloating, chronic diarrhea or constipation. Over time, both conditions lead to increased symptoms, poor quality of life, disability due to pain and fatigue, hospitalizations, intestinal surgeries, malnutrition, arthritis, joint pain, weight fluctuation and even intestinal cancer. Fortunately, most of the disastrous consequences of IBD and Celiac can be prevented through good medical management. The key is to identify the problem early and get treated.
