What is the Digestive system?
The system of organs responsible for

getting food into and out of the body

and for making use of food to keep

Eating a gluten free diet.

This means avoiding foods with wheat, barley and

rye. Also avoiding beer unless it is gluten free, if you

have gluten free diet you will also need to eat a lot of

rice, corn, millet and buckwheat.

If you have Ulcerative Colitis it is more likely for you to need surgery.




Mesalamine is delivered as either a rectal enema, suppository or a pill this works to open up the small intestine.

Crohn's Disease
A chronic inflammatory disease primarily of the bowel. Typical symptoms are

abdominal pain, weight loss, diarrhea. There may also be rectal bleeding that can lead to

tissue from its normally contained space. In the

abdomen, a hernia usually involves a piece of

bowel, or omentum that acts as a piece of fat that

invades a weak area of the abdominal wall.


•Swelling beneath the skin of the abdomen or the groin

•Tenderness/ discomfort in the abdomen

•Heavy feeling in abdomen

•Constipation or bloody stool



•The inguinal hernia surgery may be performed by laparoscope
or by an open procedure called a herniorrhaphy

Hernia Facts

•The abdominal wall is made up of layers of different muscles and tissues.
Weak spots may develop in these layers to allow contents the abdominal cavity to protrude.

•There are different types of hernias like the inguinal hernia. This one occurs in the groin, the hiatal hernia is in the diaphragm. The last type of hernia is the congenital Hernia, this one may be present at birth or they may develop at any time after.

Gastro esophageal reflux disease

This is the weakness of the valve between the esophagus and

stomach it may allow stomach acid to regurgitate into the

esophagus and irritate and inflame the lining. This results in

chest pain which can mimic that of angina (pain of cardiac
