The gastrointestinal diseases directly depend from such factors as: alimentation, quality of drinking water, environment, life condition, educational level, presence of individual risk factors (smoking, drinking alcohol).

The incidence and mortality caused by gastrointestinal diseases are third for importance in morbidity and mortality of adult population of Republic of Moldova. The home mortality caused by the complicated gastrointestinal diseases takes the first place in the mortality caused by acute surgical states.

The incidence is increased by 1,4 times and the mortality – by 1,2 times in the last years.

Four nozologies predominate in morbidity of gastrointestinal tract: gastric and duodenal ulcer, gastritis and duodenitis, cholic inflammatory disease, pancreatitis, its cumulative incidence is growing in 1,7 times.

The most affected adult people are 42,1±4,5 years old (p<0,001). The disease debut at 34,5±6,7 years old (p<0,001), the duration of diseases are 7,7±3,9 years (p<0,05).

The women are most affected person - 64,8±2,8% (p<0,001).

The other concomitant disease are registered for 67,5±2,9% (p<0,001) interrogates persons; the most usual comorbidity are from digestive system - 39,4±7,2% (p<0,05) and circulatory system 28,6±7,7% (p<0,05).

The less instructed peoples are more affected 42,3±4,3% (p<0,001).
