Hyderabad: A two-day national workshop on gastrointestinal (GI) diseases was organised by Indian Motility and Functional Disease Association (IMFDA) at Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS) on Sunday. 

The workshop, attended by 200 delegates from across India, five International and 35 national faculty, also had a symposium on bloating — a common symptom among Indians. Doctors said a cordial relationship between a doctor and patient was needed to treat bowel diseases. Patients need time to understand their problem so that the ailment can be properly diagnosed. Doctors at KIMS said diagnosis should be

done with minimal investigation. 

“The conference is an effective platform for young gastroenterologists to improve their understanding about GI tract disorders, which are due to abnormal motility of muscles in the digestive tract,” said KIMS MD and CEO Dr Bhaskar Rao.

Australian gastroenterologist Dr Geoffrey Hebbard, senior physician from Sanjay Gandhi Postgraduate Institute of Medical Sciences (SGPGI), Lucknow, Prof Uday C Ghoshal, Dr Kok Ann Gwee from Singapore and Dr Nitesh Pratap from KIMS were among the noted specialists who participated in the workshop.

One of the GI disease is due to pylori bacteria. This occurs to people who are exposed to open drainage. The doctors produced in India have poor ethics. a physician tries to solve GI issues, a GI solves nephrology issues, a cardiologist solves GI issues etc. This is first things. The general public must be educated to see a relevant doctor for the specific condition. Most of the patients do not get the right treatment. The government must have a plan to get rid of open drainage at every place. There should be good recycling of waste and better waste treatment plans. These are basic hygiene issues. Without addressing this, what is the use of hosting conferences like the one in question?
