While some changes associated with aging GI system are physiologic, others are pathological and particularly more prevalent among those above age 65 years.
The effects of ageing (young and elderly) on the physiology and function of the gastrointestinal tract have been investigated using various models leading to reports suggesting changes in circumstances such as gastric pH, gastrointestinal motility, serum albumin, hepatic and renal function, lean body mass and body fat when compared to younger adults influence pharmacokinetic Cited by: Gastrointestinal Society () “Aging Digestive Tract.” Accessed June 5, Halter, J.

Functional bowel distress represents the most common gastrointestinal disorder found in the elderly. The aging process has clinically significant effects on oropharyngeal and upper esophageal motility, colonic function, gastrointestinal (GI) immunity, and GI drug metabolism (Figure ).On the other hand, because the GI tract exhibits considerable reserve capacity, many essential aspects of GI function, such as intestinal secretion, are preserved with aging.
The book covers a wide range of conditions, from food allergies, constipation, chronic liver disease and IBS, also exploring emerging techniques to diagnose and normalize functions of the GI tract.
