    Best gastroenterologist In Dubai | Dr. Dawood Ismail Kazia

    Dr. Mohamed Dawood Ismail

    If you have severe stomach upsets, the chances are you will be recommended to go for gastroenterology in Dubai. Gastroenterology is a field of medicine which mainly focuses on the health of the digestive system. It is concerned with the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. If you are experiencing symptoms such as rectal bleeding, abdominal pain, irregular bowel movements, frequent heartburn, trouble swallowing food, bloating, and other similar conditions, then it might be the right time to visit a gastroenterologist. 


    You might want to go to your regular physician at first if your symptoms are new or they are mild in severity. This allows for preliminary testing, which determines whether or not you require the specialized treatment of a gastroenterologist. 

    Who Exactly is a Gastroenterologist?

    Many people are often tempted to associate the gastrointestinal system with the stomach and intestines only. In reality, gastroenterology consists of all parts of the body which have one or two direct interactions with what you eat. In a nutshell, a gastroenterologist covers the diseases associated with the following areas:

    • Esophagus – the tube which connects your mouth to the stomach
    • Stomach
    • Small intestines
    • Colon
    • Rectum
    • Pancreas
    • Bile ducts
    • Gallbladder, and
    • Liver

    Conditions Treated by a Gastroenterologist in Dubai

    Many conditions can bring issues to the digestive tract, eventually causing the patient to experience problems with their digestion. While chronic pain is usually the most common reason for people to visit a gastroenterologist, the symptoms might vary. They might also be nagging symptoms such as bloating, diarrhea, and such like signs.

    However, at the start, when the symptoms are still new, and the severity is still mild, one doesn’t need to head straight to a gastroenterologist. 

    The first step may be to get an appointment with a family or general physician. Initial tests will be carried out, and if the condition requires the attention of a specialist, you will get referred to a gastroenterologist. 

    Some of the reasons to see a gastroenterologist include:

    • Abnormal Bowel Movements

    Bowel habits vary from one person to another, and a sudden change, although harmless, usually signifies an underlying condition. A bowel movement is technically how the food moves through your digestive tract up to the time it is passed out as stool.

    The two most popular types of abnormal bowel movements are constipation and diarrhea.

    • Constipation – constipation, in layman terms, happens when you pass out the stool too slowly. At times, if you have very few bowel movements in a week ( which are sometimes accompanied by some struggle to defecate), a gastroenterologist might help find to find out what the issue is. 

    Constipation might be caused by several factors such as muscular or hormonal malfunctions, neurological issues, blockage, diet, etc. 

    • Diarrhea – diarrhea happens when the stool passes through the large intestines too quickly. If the runny stool lasts for a few days (read more than a day), then it could have been caused by many factors such as a virus, bacteria, reaction to various medications, or due to lactose intolerance. 

    It is sometimes an indication of other digestive tract disorders such as Crohn’s diseases or ulcerative colitis.

    • Frequent heartburn

    Occasional heartburn happens to many people; hence, it is nothing to become really concerned about. This can be controlled by taking plenty of water or by using over the counter drugs.  However, if you experience frequent heartburn, then it is highly advisable to get checked. It might be an indication of an underlying condition such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), Barrett’s Esophagus, or worse esophageal cancer.

    GERD is the most common cause of heartburn, where the acid from the stomach irritates the esophagus. Some people describe it
