Liver Disease Treatment in Southeast Georgia

liver disease treatment options
The gastroenterologists at Digestive Disease Consultants in southeast Georgia do not just treat disorders of the digestive tract. They also help with other organs that play a role in the digestive system, including the pancreas and the liver. Liver and pancreatic disease treatment differs depending on a variety of considerations, including the severity of the disorder, the type of dysfunction and more.
There are several liver diseases that may impair the function of this important organ, which helps to synthesize protein, remove toxins, play a role in vitamin D synthesis and digestion, regulate cholesterol levels, and is the site for glycolysis and gluconeogenesis. Symptoms of dysfunction include unintended weight loss, nausea and vomiting, weakness, fatigue and jaundice. Several disorders could be the cause, including cirrhosis, hepatitis, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, alcohol abuse and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis. The management of the dysfunction depends on what is wrong and may include lifestyle modifications, medication and/or surgery.

Different Types of Pancreatic Disorders

The pancreas is not an organ but a gland that plays an important role in digestion. It secretes digestive enzymes into the small intestine to help further break down food so that nutrients can be absorbed. It also releases important regulating hormones, such as insulin. One of the most common pancreatic diseases is diabetes. Other common disorders include pancreatitis (an inflammation of the pancreas), pancreatic cancer and enzyme insufficiency. Cystic fibrosis also affects the ability of this gland to work efficiently.
