The Social Security administration has strict requirements for each of these conditions and requires certain findings on examination together with medical studies to confirm your diagnosis.

The Social Security administration recognizes that digestive system disorders will result in the marked impairment because of the interference with your nutrition, the number of times these problems can recur, and the many complications. These complications must be expected to last for a continuous period of at least 12 months.
