Gastrointestinal related diseases are one of the most common types of diseases prevailing across the population in any part of the world. This includes any disorder in esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon and rectum, pancreas, gallbladder, bile ducts and liver.
Gastroenterology concentrates on the diagnosis and treatment of diseases in the above mentioned areas and this includes the most common symptoms such as acid reflux and gastritis to bowel and colon related cancers.
Like in any part of the world, millions of Sri Lankans suffer from the symptoms and diseases related to esophagus, stomach, small intestine and colon but the awareness levels among the community seem to be very low due to the lack of health education.
Therefore the objective of this blog is to create awareness among the readers about the common symptoms of gastrointestinal diseases, the common remedies and the advanced treatments that are available in Sri Lanka and around the world, this blog will also make an attempt to update the readers about the latest developments that are taking place in the diagnosis and treatment of gastrointestinal problems.

We will also get the help of a panel of experts who are representing this field of study by way of getting them to write articles and video shows on treatments, investigations and research study findings in the context of Sri Lankans.
