SSD 101: 'Digestive System Disorders' Type of Disability

The Law Offices of Joseph A. Romano, P.C. on Thursday, March 29, 2018.

Being approved for Social Security Disability (SSD) can be a long and winding journey. With court dates being set for 18-24 months into the future it's critical you contact an attorney to ensure your case is handled properly the first time it's tried to avoid a potential loss of benefits. This article is about Digestive System Disorders as defined by the Social Security Administration (SSA). These types of disorders involve disorders of the liver or bowels. Liver dysfunction, bowel diseases, intestinal hemorrhages, and/or malnutrition are example of digestive diseases.

Do to the nature of the digestive type of disorders, and are usually able to be treated, the severity and duration of the disease is considered in the evaluation of SSD. Symptoms and diseases that are chronic in nature are regarded differently.

The ways to prove and document the disorder medically (from a doctor) can vary depending on the type of disorder. It's important to consult an attorney and doctor when establishing your case.
