Abnormal liver enzymes are frequently encountered in primary care offices and hospitals and may be caused by a wide variety of conditions, from mild and nonspecific to well-defined and life-threatening. Terms such as "abnormal liver chemistries" or "abnormal liver enzymes," also referred to as transaminitis, should be reserved to describe inflammatory processes characterized by elevated alanine aminotransferase, aspartate aminotransferase, and alkaline phosphatase. Although interchangeably used with abnormal liver enzymes, abnormal liver function tests specifically denote a loss of synthetic functions usually evaluated by serum albumin and prothrombin time...

A diverse range of conditions share symptoms commonly identified with irritable bowel syndrome. The objective of this study was to examine the diagnostic process in identifying additional diagnoses in women who are attending a clinic for evaluation of symptoms suggestive of irritable bowel syndrome. A retrospective audit was conducted of anonymous data gathered on consecutive female patients presenting to a specialist nurse-led service in Christchurch, New Zealand, with a provisional diagnosis of irritable bowel syndrome...

This article is a literature review to determine the state of the science regarding the impact of nursing interventions in the treatment of hepatitis C. Hepatitis C is a chronic disease impacting millions of people globally. Treatment is currently available that has the potential to cure the disease. Medication adherence is vital to the eradication of the disease. Nursing interventions could possibly assist in the improvement in medication adherence. By reviewing the literature, the factors influencing patient outcomes were identified...

Our study aimed to assess the physical and mental health aspects and quality of life of patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). We were interested in determining whether IBD patients with complex disease states had higher rates of anxiety and depression than those without complications. Complex and uncomplicated IBD patients were assessed using a demographic questionnaire, Short Form-12 (SF-12), and the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS). Complex IBD patients are defined as those specifically having active inflammation, nutritional, and/or surgical issues...

The incidence of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) has increased over the past few decades because of the obesity epidemic and is also strongly associated with diabetes Type 2. Patients often present asymptomatically until the liver disease becomes advanced. Alternatively, persons with NAFLD can present with various stages of inflammation, hepatosis, or fibrosis, which can eventually result in cirrhosis and lead to hepatocellular carcinoma. Lifestyle modifications are the most important aspects of cirrhosis prevention...

Accurate and prompt diagnosis of celiac disease has proven difficult due to the myriad of presenting symptoms and a lack of a clear diagnostic protocol. This pilot study investigated the use of an evidence-based multimedia educational module on nurse practitioner confidence and knowledge of celiac disease. Thirteen nurse practitioners in Pennsylvania completed all study activities, which involved the use of an online pretest, learning component, an immediate post-test, along with 2 follow-up surveys. Results revealed that nurse practitioner confidence (p ≤ ...

Constipation is a health problem commonly seen in the elderly. In the present study, the effect of abdominal massage on constipation in the elderly was examined. The study sample consisted of 22 elderly people residing in a nursing home in the province of Manisa who were suffering from constipation in June 2014 to February 2015. The following were used to collect data: a case identification form; the Rome III Functional Constipation Diagnosis Criteria Form; the Bristol Stool Scale, consisting of the Recall Bias and Visual Scale Analog; and the Standard Diary Constipation Monitoring Form...

Fatigue is one of the most common patient-reported symptoms and can result in poor quality of life in patients with the hepatitis B virus (HBV). Little is known about the characteristics of fatigue in Korean patients with HBV. This study's purpose was to examine fatigue severity and explore health issues associated with fatigue in Korean patients with HBV. A mixed-methods research design was used. Quantitative data on fatigue severity were measured using the revised Piper Fatigue Scale (PFS) with 147 participants...

Mastocytosis is a rare and underdiagnosed disorder characterized by mast cell proliferation in the tissues and organs of the body. The gastrointestinal manifestations of the disease can be noted in approximately 70%-80% of those patients diagnosed with the disorder. Symptomatic manifestations of systemic mastocytosis can either be triggered spontaneously or be precipitated by a variety of situations, stimuli, and exposures. Common gastrointestinal complaints include abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and gastrointestinal reflux disease...

Chronic disease accounts for three-quarters of today's medical expenditures. Functional abdominal pain (FAP) syndrome and associated gastrointestinal symptoms affect 0.5% to 2% of North Americans. Persons with FAP routinely seek healthcare, with little resolution of symptoms, despite high costs. National reports advocate for innovative redesign of ambulatory care services. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a low-cost, effective self-management approach. The objective of this study was to implement a registered nurse-led CBT approach to enhance self-management and satisfaction with care for adults with functional gastrointestinal disorder (FGID)...

Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is a serious and rapidly growing problem affecting a population that was not previously recognized as high risk. Although treatments are limited, shedding light on those with a predisposition may allow for primary prevention, as there is presently no cure other than liver transplant. This study examines the risk factors, genetic predisposition, pathophysiology, and treatment options.

To obtain optimal visualization of the colonic mucosa during gastrointestinal endoscopic procedures, an adequate bowel preparation is mandatory, but a standardized protocol is still lacking for pediatric patients. Polyethylene glycol (PEG) is currently the most used laxative, but the amount of liquid to be taken orally is a large volume for the pediatric population and it may not be well tolerated. The aim of our preliminary trial was to evaluate efficacy, tolerability, and safety of sodium picosulphate-magnesium citrate (SPMC) used as bowel preparation before colonoscopy in children...
