Customer Question

Hi, I have attended the GP for the last few years as my son has had stomachs problems. He suffered regular stomachs ache and diarrhoea and lots of gas, poi sometimes like a froth. He has had blood tests results and bone profile come back abnormal. What kind of things could this be due to? I am thinking of going private to get to the bottom of the problem.
Assistant: How long have you been in pain? Are you experiencing any vomiting or nausea?
Customer: Sometimes my son experiences nausea from time to time
Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the Expert should know?
Customer: Recently son complains of aching legs. He is 5 years old

Some food intolerance like milk, gluten sensitivity, lactose intolerance have to be looked into if stool test like culture and sensitivity does not indicate dysentery infection.

Gas may be due to hurried intake with gulping air, or food indigestion (there will be weight loss with this). Please try eating habit changes.

Meanwhile try digestive enzyme syrup after meals, with multivitamin, mineral supplement with B complex and E vitamins.
