Gastroenterology in Bratislava
The Gastroenterology Department of DoctorPRO Bratislava provides diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases of the digestive system.
Gastroenterological pathologies develop due to a number of factors: malnutrition (skipping meals, overeating, eating dry food), chronic stress, bad habits (alcohol and nicotine abuse), and unfavorable environmental conditions.
The most common gastrointestinal diseases are as follows:
- gastritis is a stomach disorder which causes its mucous membrane inflammation;
- colitis is an inflammatory disease of the mucous membrane of the colon;
- pancreatitis is inflammation of the pancreas.
In addition to gastrointestinal inflammation, the DoctorPRO Bratislava gastroenterologist will also treat stomach and duodenal ulcers (mucous membrane lesion), intestinal dysbacteriosis (violation of the intestinal microflora) and other pathologies of the digestive tract.
Timely identification of gastrointestinal diseases is of high priority. If untreated, gastrointestinal pathologies can become chronic, which will lead to their aggravation, complicate treatment, higher likelihood of health risks (for example, the development of obstructive gastrointestinal diseases associated with narrowing of the lumen and blockage of the organs of the gastrointestinal tract). Obstructive diseases of the gastrointestinal tract cause obstruction of various organs of the digestive system and pose a threat to human life, can be fatal, and therefore require immediate hospitalization.
Gastrointestinal symptoms are diverse and vary depending on the damage to specific organs of the gastrointestinal tract. They can be as follows:
- stomachache on an empty stomach or after eating (nagging, sharp, cramping, bursting, girdle);
- dry or bitter mouth;
- gray or white tongue coating;
- nausea and vomiting;
- digestive disorders (constipation or diarrhea);
- feeling of incomplete bowel movement;
- mucus or blood impurities in vomit;
- increased flatulence;
- heartburn and bad breath;
- stomach bloating or rumbling;
- stomach heaviness;
- skin yellowing;
- difficult swallowing;

In the early stages, gastrointestinal problems may be asymptomatic. In order to prevent their development, preventive gastroenterology examinations are recommended.
Gastroenterology Examination in Bratislava
Gastroenterology examination at DoctorPRO Bratislava in Bratislava begins with a study of complaints, an examination of the tongue and oral mucosa. Gastroenterology examination may include:
- palpation of internal organs. The doctor probes the abdominal organs to find the localization of pain and identify any tumors;
- Gastrointestinal ultrasound. It is used to image organs and determine any pathological changes.
If necessary, blood, urine and stool tests may be prescribed. Preparing for a gastroenterology examination includes avoiding food and water on the day of the examination (so that a full stomach does not affect the accuracy of results). In the case of a visit in the afternoon, eating and drinking must be avoided for three hours before. Also, on the day of the examination, do not brush your teeth so as not to remove plaque from the tongue, which may indicate the presence of gastrointestinal pathologies.
Based on the results of the examination, the doctor will diagnose and prescribe the treatment of the identified gastrointestinal disease. Also, the doctor will give recommendations on how to improve digestion, in particular, the best diet for your gastrointestinal condition.
Diet in GI Disorders
Treatment of gastrointestinal disorders begins with proper nutrition, which allows you to improve the functioning of the digestive tract. Diet in gastrointestinal disorders should be regular and fractional (three to five times a day with small portions). Give preference to lean broth-based first courses (as they are more easily digested by the stomach and do not irritate the gastric mucosa) and do not overeat.
In case of gastrointestinal pathologies avoid fried, spicy, flour, smoked meats, canned food, alcoholic and carbonated drinks. The basis of the diet should be cereals, first courses based on vegetable or lean broths, lean fish and meat. Food should be boiled, baked or steamed.
Proper diet and careful monitoring of your well-being will help to cure gastrointestinal pathologies and prevent their development in the future. When the first pathological symptoms appear, do not hesitate to seek medical help.
