Gastrointestinal (GI) disorders like irritable bowel syndrome, colitis, and celiac disease affect a staggering number of Americans — according to a 2018 study from the American Gastroenterology Association, they’re responsible for 30 million doctor visits a year, along with three million hospital admissions.
