What does a gastroenterologist do?

Bilirubin is a yellow coloured substance formed after the breakdown of red blood cells. The unconjugated or indirect or albumin-bound bilirubin is produced by the breakdown of red blood cells. This indirect bilirubin is metabolized by the liver and produce conjugated or direct bilirubin. Bilirubin passes through the liver and excreted through urine or stool. The high level of bilirubin in the blood is the sign of excess hemolysis and the major sign of liver disease. The normal range of conjugated bilirubin in the body is 0-0.3 mg/dl and in case of Unconjugated bilirubin, the normal range is 0.1-1.2 mg/dl. Level of bilirubin higher than the given range is usually considered high.

What are the causes of gastric symptoms?

Some of the most common causes of gastric symptoms and gastrointestinal conditions are:

A diet that is low in fiber

  • Fiber is one of the most underrated components of food. 
  • However, it plays a very integral part in gut health.
  •  Fiber is a form of complex carbohydrates that are found abundantly in plant-based foods. 
  • The fiber in food cannot be digested easily and contributes to intestinal and digestive health. 
  • There are plenty of bacteria in the intestine that constitute the intestinal microbiome
  • Fiber serves as food for the infinite beneficial bacteria that populate the gut
  • The presence of fiber in the diet helps to increase the bulk of stool
  • The right amount of nutrients - proteins, carbohydrates, and fats is very important for optimal gut health
  • Fiber softens the stool and allows easy passage of stools through the anus
  • A diet rich in fiber prevents constipation- a condition that predisposes to many others
  • Fiber serves as the power that keeps the cells of the colon healthy and functioning well
  • A low fiber diet predisposes to chronic constipation that can influence colonic function
  • The chances of inflammation anywhere in the digestive system is lowered when the intestine gets the right amount of fiber from food
  • The presence of fiber in food lowers the body’s absorption of cholesterol thereby helping to maintain a healthy blood cholesterol level
  • The intake of fiber paces down the digestive process, keeps you satiated for a longer time
  • A reduced amount of fiber in the diet increases the risk of gastrointestinal cancers including colorectal cancer
  • Leafy vegetables, beans, whole grains, unpolished rice, oats, millets such as bajra, jowar, buckwheat, foxtail millet, kodu, etc are rich sources of fiber

Stress levels

Just like any other part of the body, the gut is extremely sensitive to stress

  • The gut biome is constantly influenced by the brain
  • The levels of stress impacting the brain influence the intestinal microbiome almost directly
  • The gut contains more nerve endings than the brain and it responds to the levels of stress
  • Symptoms such as inflammation may occur. 
  • Long-standing inflammation can lead to a host of other conditions
  • Bloating, cramping, etc are all reactions of the body to the increased stress


  • Intake of water is important to keep the GI tract free of toxins
  • When the water levels are low in the body, it makes way for constipation
  • The toxin build up in the digestive tract paves way for inflammation and infection

Increased intake of fat and dairy products

  • Dairy food has not essentially been a part of the human diet
  • Excessive intake of dairy products may cause overloading of protein in the body leading to bloating, gas, and cramps
  • A moderate amount of fat intake is very important to maintain intestinal health

Sedentary lifestyle

  • A sedentary lifestyle in combination with unhealthy food habits becomes the breeding ground for a lot of digestive problems and symptoms
  • It is important to include foods that help to prevent inflammation
  • Combating infections of the digestive tract comprises eating healthy and natural foods


  • One of the habits detrimental to gastrointestinal and liver health include alcohol intake
  • Excessive intake of alcohol erodes the barrier in the gut and makes the toxins enter the bloodstream
  • Alcohol intake stimulates the growth of harmful intestinal bacteria predisposing the gut to infection and inflammation
  • The presence of alcohol impairs the absorption of essential nutrients into the blood and results in deficiency

Do stomach problems lead to surgery?

Not always. But some problems can be corrected only with surgery. Samadhan clinic houses the best gastro doctor in Delhi who will diagnose and proceed with the treatment that is right for you.

These include:
