Raleigh Digestive Health Diagnostics and Treatment
We all suffer from abdominal pain and illness from time to time – a bit of heartburn after a rich meal or even a bout of stomach flu during the winter. However, when these acute symptoms last longer than a few hours or a few days, you may be experiencing something more serious. Digestive health issues can seriously impact your overall health and worsen if left untreated. Fortunately, our qualified specialists evaluating your abdominal pain at Med One can diagnose your ailment and provide you with the best treatment to help you recover from illness and feel better faster.
Common Abdominal Health Issues and Symptoms
Most people suffering from abdominal pain or illness refer to it as “stomach troubles,” but the abdomen houses much more than just the stomach. Symptoms could be stemming from the esophagus, stomach, pancreas, liver, gallbladder, or the small or large intestine. Gastrointestinal issues are often brushed off as being caused by stress or poor diet, but because there are so many variables and possible causes, it’s important to call our Raleigh primary care for an appointment to get to the root of what’s causing your health concerns. Reach out to us if you’re suffering from the following symptoms:
- Abdominal pain (either sharp pain or a consistent ache)
- Nausea and vomiting
- Bloating and discomfort
- Acid reflux
If you are suffering from severe abdominal pain, your symptoms worsen rapidly, you become dehydrated, or your fever reaches 104 degrees, it’s important to seek emergency medical care as soon as possible.
How We Evaluate Abdominal Pain
At Med One Medical Group, we understand the frustration of waiting for test results or having to go to several different locations to try and get answers. To save you time and get you results faster, we offer a wide variety of diagnostic tools here in our offices to evaluate the specific cause of your abdominal pain or digestive health symptoms.
In addition to a physical exam, our on-site laboratory and ultrasound allow us to screen for a wide variety of issues including gallbladder problems, H. Pylori bacteria, and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). These tools allow our digestive health doctors to ascertain the cause of your symptoms quickly, meaning less waiting for you to get the treatment plan that will help you feel better in less time.
Additional Services for Digestive Health
In addition to abdominal diagnostics and treatment, we are proud to offer additional resources to help you live your healthiest life. Our quarterly Healthy Eating Class goes beyond the salads and gives you practical guidance so you can eat specifically for your body’s needs and how to make better food choices to help you feel energized and vibrant. We also have an on-staff nutritionist if we feel that dietary changes should be a part of your treatment plan so you feel supported while being monitored.
