Thanks for the Query!

The GI system not only involves gastrointestinal system but also the liver along with gall bladder and pancreas also. The problem with liver is also dealt by the Gi doctor. The symptoms your are having is due to the liver disease and the GI doctor is appropriate for your further management.
