Is a Digestive Disorder Keeping You Out of Work?
Digestive system problems can be difficult to treat and, in some cases, life threatening. When digestive disorders advance, they can significantly impact a sufferer's ability to perform routine activities and perform job duties. If you suffer from a digestive disorder and are unable to work, it is important to explore your right to Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits.

Social Security Disability Claims Involving Digestive Disorders
Digestive system impairments covered by Social Security include:
- Gastrointestinal hemorrhage
- Hepatic (liver) dysfunction
- Cirrhosis of the liver
- Inflammatory bowel disease
- Short bowel syndrome
- Barrett's esophagus
The SSA is often reluctant to grant benefits for digestive system disorders because they often do not meet the 12-month requirement for qualifying disorders.
If your digestive disorder has lasted for at least 12 months or can be expected to last for at least 12 months, it is very important to have documented proof from a medical provider. Our Social Security Disability lawyers can help you understand how to work with your doctor to increase your chances of success.
