Gastroenterology is the branch of medicine focused on the digestive system and its disorders.

Many people struggle with stomach problems such as pain or discomfort, nausea, diarrhea, airborne pain or heartburn. This can be very troublesome and go beyond the quality of life to the one in question. Symptoms of the gastrointestinal system are very common. Almost everyone has experienced abdominal pain or loose stomach. Often such ailments are completely harmless, but in some cases, there are signs of acute and potentially serious illness. Gastro is one of Navamedic’s focus areas were we also see an untapped potential, especially in the Nordics.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Many people experience pain after eating and feel better after visiting the toilet. The degree of symptoms varies from person to person from acceptable to difficult. They may also vary over time in the same person, with mild to moderate symptoms at times and more prominent in others. Although the symptoms are very troublesome, irritable bowel does not develop into serious illness. In contrast, irritable bowel syndrome can significantly reduce the quality of life. (www.helsenorge.no). The condition is common and is estimated to affect between 10-15% of the Norwegian population. Irritable bowel syndrome can be seen in both sexes and at all ages, but the incidence is higher in women than in men (www.NHI.no)
