What is Zollinger-Ellison syndrome?

Zollinger-ellison Syndrome is a rare condition where one or more tumours in the stomach known as gastrinomas result in the production of too much gastric acid. The excessive acid may cause peptic ulcers in your stomach or intestine, resulting in symptoms such as heartburn, abdominal pain, acid reflux and vomiting. Zollinger-ellison syndrome is associated with hereditary conditions.

  • Diarrhea

  • Greasy stools that float, associated with problems with digestion

  • Heartburn; painful burning feeling in the chest or throat

  • Stomach feels bloated

  • Loss of appetite

  • Black, shiny stool

  • Abdominal pain
