Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A staggering one in four women suffers some kind of gastrointestinal disorder. Some conditions, like irritable bowel syndrome, afflict more than twice as many women as men. Yet all too often, women suffer in silence—or fail to benefit when they receive the same treatment as men.

Now, in this accessible, comprehensive guide, one of the countrys leading gastroenterologists, Dr. Cynthia Yoshida, provides the answers every woman needs, starting with a tour of the female GI system and the profound role sex hormones play. Brought to you by the American Gastroenterological Association, the book features the newest breakthrough medical treatments, plus advice on diet and gentle natural therapies that really work. No More Digestive Problems includes:

• Handling the effects of PMS, pregnancy, and menopause

• The surprising influence of weight on digestion—with vital information

on eating disorders

• Combating common ills from bloating, belching, and heartburn

to the runs and constipation

• Meeting the challenges of reflux (GERD), food intolerances, irritable bowel

syndrome (IBS), and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)

• The crucial facts about women and colon cancer—and how to reduce your risk

Filled with revealing patient anecdotes, self-help tips, information on standard tests, and important questions you may want to ask your physician, here is an invaluable—and potentially lifesaving—resource for women of all ages.

Synopsis:

A staggering one in four women suffers from some kind of gastrointestinal disorder. Everything from menstruation to pregnancy can wreak havoc with the way a woman's body processes food, and some conditions, like the current epidemic of irritable bowel syndrome, afflict more than twice as many women as men. When Dr. Yoshida started the Women's Gastroenterological Clinic at the University of Virginia, she discovered that many of her new patients' common symptoms, such as bloating, constipation, and heartburn, had gone untreated for years. Others failed to benefit from treatment tailored to men and many were shockingly unaware of more serious risks like colon cancer. This reassuring and revealing book--filled with the most recent medical information from the American Gastroenterological Association, as well as with self-help tips and the voices of Dr. Yoshida's patients--addresses the key areas of digestive health, from the meaning of symptoms, to standard tests, to high-tech procedures and gentle natural approaches. It is an essential reference for women of all ages.
