Upper gastrointestinal disease in the elderly patient

  • RD Johnston (a1), S Singhal (a2) and TE Bowling (a1)

Abstract

Old people are a growing minority. They comprise approximately 12% of the UK population, but consume an increasing proportion of health care resources. Gastrointestinal (GI) disorders are the third most common reason why patients over 65 years seek primary care advice, and 40% of these consultations relate to the upper GI tract.
