Disability Involving the Digestive System

Being diagnosed with a serious digestive disease does not guarantee approval for disability benefits (with the exception of liver transplants). Social Security will grant automatic disability for some disorders (such as gastrointestinal hemorrhaging, chronic liver disease, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), short bowel syndrome, and severe weight loss)  that meet the agency's listing criteria. But applicants with other digestive disorders, including irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and celiac disease, have to show that the limitations these disorders impose on their functioning prevents them from doing even sedentary work.
