The digestive system plays a critical role in how our body takes in and processes food. Organs of the digestive system are usually referred to as “your gut.” It is also the beginning of the process in which our body receives nourishment. Understanding this process can be helpful when communicating with patients or when analyzing charts for assigning the correct medical codes. If you had to explain the point at which the digestive process actually begins and one related disease or disorder, how would you describe it? Be sure to use your medical terms!
