Gastrointestinal Disorders

  • V. Diane Garrett
Part of the Springer Series in Rehabilitation and Health book series (SSRH)


Disorders of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract constitute a major health problem in the United States. A report from the National Foundation for Ileitis and Colitis (1986) suggested that more than 34 million Americans have diseases of the GI tract. GI diseases account for approximately 15% of all admissions to general hospitals and 200 thousand absences from work per day. As many as 60% of all consultations to physicians result from GI complaints. Moreover, GI disorders are a major cause of death in the United States, resulting in approximately 200 thousand deaths yearly. Estimated economic costs (both medical costs and losses from reduced work productivity) are greater than $50 billion annually.
