Gastroenterology sloshy stomach

A gastroenterology sloshy stomach is a digestive disorder that causes a feeling of fullness in the stomach. It is also referred to as a bloating stomach.

The cause of the condition is not fully understood. Symptoms can vary from person to person.

What is a gastroenterology sloshy stomach?

The term “gastroenterology sloshy stomach” was coined in 2014 by a gastroenterologist named Dr. James O. Neslage.

In a review of the medical literature, Neslage identified more than 500 cases of gastroenterology sloshy stomach that had been published in the medical literature.

Neslage also identified a “sloshy abdomen” by the British Association of Gastroenterology in 2018. This is a condition that causes a feeling of fullness in the abdomen.

The condition is also referred to as a floating abdomen. A floating abdomen is not a floating feeling in the abdomen. It is a feeling of fullness in the stomach and lower abdomen. This is different from a bloated feeling, which is a feeling of fullness in the belly.

Causes of a gastroenterology sloshy stomach

There is no specific cause of the condition. The condition is not a result of a medical condition, such as a tumor or cyst.

The symptoms are not related to other medical problems.

Neslage notes that a symptom that is more common with the condition is bloating. Other symptoms include:

  • Abdominal bloating or distension
  • Feeling of fullness in the stomach
  • A sensation of a lump in the abdomen
  • Abdominal pain
  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting

Diagnosis of a gastroenterology sloshy stomach

A gastroenterologist may diagnose the condition based on the patient’s symptoms. They may also perform a physical examination.

If the symptoms are not consistent or if the physical examination finds no abnormalities, the patient may need further investigation.

The doctor will review the patient’s medical history and ask about other symptoms that may be present.

In some cases, the doctor may order further tests, such as:

  • A barium swallow test, which allows the doctor to view the intestines from the outside. The doctor will use a small amount of barium sulfate to coat the inside of the mouth and the roof of the stomach to help the doctor see the intestines better.
  • An upper endoscopy, which uses a thin tube with a camera at the end to view the upper GI tract.
  • A colonoscopy, which uses an endoscope to view the colon and rectum.
  • A CT scan, which is a type of X-ray that takes detailed images of the body.

Treatment of a gastroenterology sloshy stomach

The only treatment options for a gastroenterology sloshy stomach are lifestyle changes.

The doctor will work to treat any other conditions that may be causing the symptoms. For example, if the patient has a thyroid disorder, the doctor will treat it. They may also treat some underlying medical conditions.

The doctor may recommend some lifestyle changes to treat the condition:

  • Lose weight if the patient is overweight, or about 10 pounds per week. Weight loss may improve the condition.
