Disorders can be as mild as indigestion or heartburn to gastroesophageal reflux and Chrohn's Disease. One very common is gastritis which leads to peptic ulcers. Celiac Disease is another GI disorder that interferes with the absorption of nutrients which leads to malnourishment concerns.

Acid reflux can cause pain. Peptic ulcers can cause problems. Pancreatitis is a very serious disease that can cause death. Heartburn can cause considerable distress. Hernias can cause digestive pain. Diarrhea can cause problems. Eating an inadequate diet would cause problems. Not enough roughage could be another cause. Even food poisoning could cause this.
