Gastric

« Back to Glossary Index

Gastric refers to the stomach. The gastric system is responsible for breaking down and digesting food. It is made up of the stomach and a number of other organs, including the esophagus, small intestine, and large intestine. The process of digestion begins in the mouth and continues through the stomach and intestines, with the help of enzymes and other digestive juices produced by the body. Abnormalities or disorders of the gastric system can cause a range of symptoms, including abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and difficulty with digestion. If you are experiencing any concerning symptoms, it is important to speak with a healthcare professional for proper diagnosis and treatment.
