Obesity-Related Gastrointestinal Issues in Children

Obese children are at higher risk for a wide range of gastrointestinal diseases than children of normal weight. These “comorbidities” include cholecystitis (inflammation of the gallbladder), reflux esophagitis (an inflammation of the esophagus that is a risk factor for Barrett’s esophagus), non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, hyperuricemia (high uric acid in the blood), irritable bowel syndrome, dyspepsia and even colon cancer. A gastroenterologist or bariatric physician can monitor and address these conditions in children while helping them to reduce their weight and get back to a healthier lifestyle.
