IBS IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME


IBS IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME

DR UDI SHMUELI    Book Number: 86887    Product format: Hardback

The author is Consultant Physician and Gastroenterologist at Northampton General Hospital and here he gives practical answers to hundreds of real questions. IBS is an extremely common and distressing problem affecting up to 20% of us at any one time. Symptoms include bloating, wind, abdominal pain, diarrhea and constipation, and many experience bouts of IBS that can dominate their whole lives. Here is all about its causes, symptoms and treatment, self-help techniques that really work, guidance on other disorders that could cause abdominal pain, sections explaining relevant medical tests and investigations, the latest research on food allergy and intolerance and advice on complementary therapies. Unfortunately, conditions such as coeliac disease are still being misdiagnosed as IBS, yet for people who have had symptoms for more than six months without anything obvious developing such as weight loss or persistent bleeding, its unlikely to be a serious condition. The role of diet in disease has been food for debate for centuries and the idea that all people with IBS just need a little more fibre in their diet has been dismissed. Remember, be careful about reading health books - you may die of a misprint! All about what saliva does, where exactly the duodenum is in diagrams, the role of bile right down to the pubo-rectalis muscle in the pelvis. With plenty of tables to follow, cartoons and nice clear layout. 352pp.
