The field of gastroenterology involves the health of your digestive system. This includes your stomach, intestines, liver, pancreas and gall bladder. When this nearly 25-foot-long digestive system is working as it should, the organs break down food and transport nutrients throughout your body. When it is not functioning properly, a variety of symptoms present themselves.
