What Is Fiber?

What is fiber?Posted June 5th, 2019

As gastroenterologists, a common topic of conversation with our patients is “fiber”. Questions range from “What is fiber?” to “Why is fiber important?” to “How much fiber do I need?”. In an effort to answer these questions, as well as a few others, please read on.

Dietary fiber, frequently referred to as roughage, is essentially indigestible plant material. Unlike proteins, carbohydrates and fats, which are broken down and absorbed by your body, fiber passes through the GI tract undigested. Although fiber isn’t digested and absorbed, it does play a key role in keeping your digestive system functioning properly.

APRIL IS ESOPHAGEAL CANCER AWARENESS MONTH

Your esophagus is the hollow, muscular tube which connects your throat to your stomach. It is roughly 20 cm long and allows swallowed food, liquids and pills to pass from your mouth into your stomach. Esophageal cancer develops when some of the cells lining the esophagus turn malignant/cancerous. It is estimated that approximately 17,000 people will develop esophageal cancer this year and that there will be approximately 15,000 esophageal cancer-related deaths. The lifetime risk of developing esophageal cancer is ~ 1 in 130 men and ~ 1 in 450 women.

BlueCross BlueShield of Texas’ recent decision to start denying coverage of certain ER visits that it deems unnecessary

Posted August 14th, 2018

We here at Northeast Tarrant Gastroenterology Associates are well-aware of the alarm created by BlueCross BlueShield of Texas’ recent decision to start denying coverage of certain ER visits that it deems unnecessary. We would like all of our current and future patients to know that while we share their concerns, we have absolutely no influence with BCBS in regard to whether your visit will be deemed necessary or not. Our recommendation is to be judicious with your ER visits and to consider using urgent care facilities (i.e. CareNow) when routine clinic visits aren’t an option.
