Gastrointestinal (GI) disorders include a wide range of conditions affecting the GI tract. The GI tract comprises a system of organs that are organised sequentially to form a hollow tube that facilitates the passage of food through the body.

In patients with gastrointestinal disorders, damage to or dysfunction of these organs can elicit some unpleasant symptoms which vary depending upon the organ affected and disease severity. Common symptoms indicative of gastrointestinal involvement include abdominal pain, bloating, nausea, vomiting and abnormal bowel movements.
