Due to the way that the internal organs are innervated, it is often very difficult to decipher which systems are causing which symptoms. Often symptoms overlap, making differential diagnosis very difficult.
Which organs are part of the Gastrointestinal System?
The Stomach, Small Intestine (duodenum, jejunum and ileum) and Large Intestine (Cecum, Appendix, Ascending Colon, Transverse Colon, Descending Colon, Sigmoid Colon and Rectum)
What makes up the Digestive System?
All of the organs mentioned above as part of the Gastrointestinal System as well as the Liver and Gallbladder (accessory organs) and Pancreas. (The Salivary Glands, Pharynx and Esophagus are also part of the Digestive System but are excluded from this discussion)
