Gall Stone Predisposition

Geographic and ethnic differences in gallstone prevalence rates and familial clustering of cholelithiasis imply that genetic factors influence the risk of gallstone formation. In rare instances, mutations in single genes confer a substantial risk for the formation of gallstones. However, in the majority of cases gallstones might develop as a result of lithogenic polymorphisms in several genes and their interactions with multiple environmental factors, rendering gallstones generally a complex genetic disorder. Gallstones are uncommon in children but frequent in adults, in particular in women, and are triggered by exogenous risk factors.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome Risk

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a chronic, relapsing gastrointestinal problem, characterized by abdominal pain, bloating, and changes in bowel habits. Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common disorder that affects the large intestine. Signs and symptoms include cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, gas, and diarrhea or constipation, or both. IBS is a chronic condition that you'll need to manage long term. Only a small number of people with IBS have severe signs and symptoms. Some people can control their symptoms by managing diet, lifestyle and stress. More-severe symptoms can be treated with medication and counseling. The signs and symptoms of IBS vary. The most common include:
1. Abdominal pain, cramping or bloating that is typically relieved or partially relieved by passing a bowel movement
2. Excess gas
3. Diarrhea or constipation — sometimes alternating bouts of diarrhea and constipation
4. Mucus in the stool
Causes:
1. Muscle contractions in the intestine
2. Nervous system
3. Inflammation in the intestines
4. Severe infection
5. Changes in bacteria in the gut (micro flora).
Triggers:
- Food, stress, hormones

Peptic ulcers are open sores that develop on the inside lining of your stomach and the upper portion of your small intestine. The most common symptom of a peptic ulcer is stomach pain.
Peptic ulcers include:

2. Duodenal ulcers that occur on the inside of the upper portion of your small intestine (duodenum)
