NYC Gastroenterologist, Dr. Shawn Khodadadian, Announces Rise in Patients Seeking GI Treatment Due to Alcohol Consumption
Dr. Shawn Khodadadian, of Manhattan Gastroenterology located on New York City's Upper East Side (http://www.manhattangastroenterology.com), announced today a rise in patients seeking GI treatment and evaluation due to alcohol consumption. "Alcohol irritates your digestive system. Potential GI problems that can occur due to alcohol abuse can include liver disease, cancers of the GI tract, gastritis and heartburn (GERD), peptic ulcers, and pancreatitis. New York is a food and drink culture so this finding in my practice is not surprising".
