At Weill Cornell Medicine, we understand that nutrition plays an important role in maintaining a healthy digestive tract, which includes your stomach, intestines, colon, pancreas, and liver.
Improved nutrition can lead to improved digestive disease control, enhanced overall health and wellness, lessened gastrointestinal symptoms, and higher quality of life.
