  • Gastritis

    Gastritis is a digestive disorder characterized by the inflammation of the stomach lining. The condition occurs due to various reasons including bacterial infections by Helicobacter pylori (H.pylori), frequent intake of aspirin or ibuprofen (NSAID painkillers), smoking, and drinking an excessive amount of alcohol, stress, surgery, a severe injury or illness.When left untreated, gastritis and lead to other health co  Read More

  • Glucocerebrosidase deficiency

    A deficiency of the glucocerebrosidase enzyme causes the inherited (genetic) disorder known as Gaucher disease. Due to a lack of the enzyme glucocerebrosidase, Gaucher disease, also known as glucocerebrosidase deficiency, is a genetic disorder that causes aberrant accumulations of the fatty compounds known as glycolipids in various human tissues.There are numerous terms that can be used to describe Gaucher disease.  Read More

  • Glycogen storage disease vii

    Glycogen storage disease vii is a hereditary disorder. Most cases are found in children. It is caused due to transfer of genes from the parents. The cause of GSD is the lack of an enzyme responsible for the breakdown of glycogen.Breakdown of glycogen into glucose is necessary for providing energy to the body. The Phosphofructokinase enzyme is responsible for the breaking down of glycogen into glucose. The lack of glucose  Read More

Doctors will initially advise a patient to cease using any medications that have been linked to collagenous colitis.There are numerous drugs that can be used to lessen or eliminate symptoms. The majority of research indicates that the first line of treatment for collagenous colitis should  Read More

  • Phosphoglycerate kinase deficiency

    Phosphoglycerate kinase deficiency is an inherited metabolic disorder of the enzyme pyruvate kinase, which affects the survival of red blood cells, causing anemia.Cause:Pyruvate kinase deficiency is due to a mutation in the PKLR gene. There are four pyruvate kinase isoenzymes, two of which are encoded by the PKLR.Mutations in the PKLR gene, therefore, cause a deficiency in the pyruvate kinase e  Read More

  • Whipple disease

    Digestive signs and symptoms are common in Whipple disease and may include: Diarrhea Stomach cramping and pain, which may worsen after meals Weight loss, associated with the malabsorption of nutrients Other frequent signs and symptoms associated with Whipple disease include: Inflamed joints, particularly the ankles, knees and wrists Fatigue Weakness  Read More
