Gastroenterologists (GI doctor) are doctors that diagnose and treat cancers and other illnesses that affect the GI tract (gastrointestinal, colorectal, liver, pancreatic). Much like the doctors and researchers at the Investigative Clinical Research Group, GI doctors are driven by a passion to provide relief and the best medication possible for GI patients. Doctors work miracles, but if you do not visit one, you will never know what can be done. You have to go to the doctor when things are not working the way they are supposed to.
Heartburn happens. Chili dogs, spicy food, alcohol, tomato sauce, etc…there are numerous different triggers for heartburn. Each person feels it differently, and everybody gets it from time to time. When heartburn happens more frequently, it is a good idea to visit the GI Doctor. They can help you manage your symptoms.
Blood found in your stool can often indicate an issue somewhere in the GI tract. There is a wide range of things that may cause bleeding, but if that is the situation, then it is a GI problem. Often when you find blood in your stool, you will experience abdominal pain. Abdominal pain and bloating can occur after eating something that just does not sit right, from overeating, and many other causes. Random, infrequent pain or discomfort will usually pass. If the pain persists and increases in frequency, it is time to see the GI Doctor.
The idea of going to a GI doctor or researcher is most likely not on anyone’s bucket list. But it is essential to living a long and healthy life. The ICR Group is dedicated to finding relief for those who suffer from any type of GI symptoms. The ongoing clinical trials focus on everything from Celiac Disease to NERD (Non-erosive Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease).
They have covered all the bases and they show up to work every day ready to save lives. If you have any questions about whether or not you need a GI Doctor, make an appointment. Something put the thought in your head. For any other questions, please visit www.icrmd.com.
