Gastroesophageal reflux

Understanding digestion related symptoms and features

Symptoms may affect multiple parts of the body. Understanding which part of the body a symptom affects, can help us to better understand the potential underlying causes of a symptom, including a rare disease or genetic syndrome.

The digestive system is made up of the mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, and anus (known as the GI tract). It also includes the liver, pancreas and gallbladder.

Generally, symptoms affecting the skin can not be seen with the eye. Although diagnosing a digestive system related symptom may involve different tests and assessments, both subjective and objective.

Symptoms relating to the digestive system may be temporary and the result of an infection or virus. In other cases they may be more permanent, serious and affect the ability of an individual to eat, and digest food. This might in turn affect a person’s growth and development.

What is Gastroesophageal reflux?

More commonly known as acid reflux or heartburn this condition occurs when the contents of the stomach leak backwards and into the esophagus.

What should I do next?

In some instances gastroesophageal reflux may be one of the features of a rare disease or genetic syndrome. In this case fast, targeted genetic analysis can give you a more accurate diagnosis.
