  • Biliary conditions: Medical conditions affecting the biliary system (liver, bile ducts, gallbladder, etc.) in digestion.
  • Biliary disorder: Any condition affecting the bile ducts
  • Cholangitis: bile duct inflammation (cholangitis)
  • Cholecystitis: Inflammation of the gallbladder which concentrates and stores bile. The condition may occur suddenly (acute) or persist over a longer period of time (chronic).
  • Cholelithiasis: Is the presence of gallstones in the gallbladder
  • Cholestasis, intrahepatic of pregnancy: A rare liver disorder (impaired flow of bile) that occurs during third trimester of pregnancy with symptoms usually disappearing after delivery.
  • Colic: Abdominal spasms causing pain
  • Cystic Fibrosis: Cystic fibrosis is a hereditary disease affecting the exocrine (mucus) glands of the lungs, liver, pancreas, and intestines, causing progressive disability due to multisystem failure.
  • Diclofenac -- Teratogenic Agent: There is evidence to indicate that exposure to Diclofenac (an NSAID drug) during pregnancy may have a teratogenic effect on the fetus. A teratogen is a substance that can cause birth defects. The likelihood and severity of defects may be affected by the level of exposure and the stage of pregnancy that the exposure occurred at.
  • Digestive Diseases: Diseases that affect the digestive system
  • Epigastric pain: Pain located in the upper and middle region of the abdomen
  • Erythropoietic Protoporphyria: A condition where there is excessive formation of porphyrin or its precursor
  • Gall bladder conditions: Any condition that affects the gallbladder
  • Gallstones: Stone-like deposits in the gall bladder.
  • Haemolytic anaemia:
  • Hereditary spherocytosis: A rare genetic condition characterized by a defect of the red blood cell membrane. It is characterized by abnormally-shaped red blood cells which are spherical rather than doughnut-shaped. The abnormal red blood cells are broken down by the spleen sooner than normal which leads to problems such as anemia. There are various subtypes of the disorder which are distinguished by the origin of the underlying genetic defect.
  • Irritable bowel syndrome: Spasms in the colon wall
  • Ketorolac -- Teratogenic Agent: There is evidence to indicate that exposure to Ketorolac during pregnancy may have a teratogenic effect on the fetus. A teratogen is a substance that can cause birth defects. The likelihood and severity of defects may be affected by the level of exposure and the stage of pregnancy that the exposure occurred at.
  • Meperidine -- Teratogenic Agent: There is evidence to indicate that exposure to Meperidine during pregnancy may have a teratogenic effect on the fetus. A teratogen is a substance that can cause birth defects. The likelihood and severity of defects may be affected by the level of exposure and the stage of pregnancy that the exposure occurred at.
  • Pain conditions: Diseases characterized by pain and pain-like symptoms.
  • Peptic ulcer / duodenal ulcer:
  • Peritonitis: Inflammation of the lining of the abdominal cavity
  • Prochlorperazine -- Teratogenic Agent: There is evidence to indicate that exposure to Prochlorperazine during pregnancy may have a teratogenic effect on the fetus. A teratogen is a substance that can cause birth defects. The likelihood and severity of defects may be affected by the level of exposure and the stage of pregnancy that the exposure occurred at.
  • Shingles: Infectious viral infection occuring years after chickenpox infection.
  • Shoulder Pain: A pain that occurs in the shoulder. There is often other associated symptoms depending on the cause of the shoulder pain. For example, swelling may indicate a broken bone.
  • Somatostatinoma: A very rare disorder where tumors in glands that produce somatostatin affect the secretion of the hormone. The tumor mainly occurs in the pancreas but can also occur in the intestinal tract.
  • Tenoxicam -- Teratogenic Agent: There is evidence to indicate that exposure to Tenoxicam during pregnancy may have a teratogenic effect on the fetus. A teratogen is a substance that can cause birth defects. The likelihood and severity of defects may be affected by the level of exposure and the stage of pregnancy that the exposure occurred at.
  • Xanthogranulomatous cholecystitis: A lipid laden foam cell tumour of the gallbladder resulting in inflammation
