on January 4, 2019

When you suffer from gastrointestinal problems, you certainly do not like to talk about it, right? Well do not keep it, these kinds of problems are more common than you imagine, so there’s no reason to be ashamed. In fact, several studies have shown that at least one fifth of the population has experienced inflammation, reflux and constipation.

The presence of obesity has been related to the existence of gastroesophageal reflux, and in recent years with the development of adenocarcinoma and alterations in esophageal motility. So yes, your stomach is partly the cause of your excess fat, well, if you want to make the excess disappear quickly you can consider a gastric sleeve in Tijuana.
Reflux: That sensation that burns the stomach, the upper abdominal part and the chest is called reflux or heartburn. According to an American study, about 20% of the population suffers from this once a week … and being Mexicans, surely the figures are even higher. Reflux can be treated easily, but if you have additional symptoms, such as swallowing problems, weight loss or anemia, you will have to consult your doctor … it will not be cancer.
Indigestion: If you suffer from pain, inflammation or nausea, after clogging food, you may have indigestion. Like reflux, it can easily be treated with medication that blocked the acid, but a change in lifestyle should also be considered if this happens on a regular basis.
Irritable bowel syndrome: This condition can come in the form of diarrhea, constipation or a mixture of 2. If your toilet habits change for a couple of days, there is no problem, but if this happens for several months and comes accompanied by chronic abdominal pain, you may have irritable bowel syndrome. What causes it? It is not exactly known, but it is more common in women than in men.
Functional constipation: In other words: you have a hard time going to the bathroom. In women, it is sometimes a sign of pelvic floor dysfunction, and can be treated with physical therapy. It is assumed that more than 15% of people suffer from regular constipation, but if it is happening to you recently, you can avoid it with a correct diet.
Pain in the abdominal wall: If that pain you can locate, instead of feeling it in the whole abdomen, you could suffer from pain in the abdominal wall, which is 4 times more common in women than in men. It usually results from the compression of the nerves in the abdomen, and although the pain becomes VERY severe, it is almost never dangerous. If it is not progressive it can be treated with an injection every couple of months and there are also positions that can give some relief.
