This paper reviews metabolomics/metabonomics technologies used in digestive disease clinical diagnosis, summarizes mainly two aspects for using metabolomic methods in current diagnosis for gastrointestinal disease, i.e. the one used for diagnosis of gastrointestinal malignancy, the other improving diagnosis of disease which can not be easily distinguished by traditional clinical methods. The future use of the metabonomics in clinic is also analyzed in the present paper.
