Digestive problems can take a real toll on your wellbeing. Short-term treatment may provide temporary relief, but leave you with ongoing problems, which is why it’s important to work with a doctor who can get to the root causes of digestive symptoms. This health issue is one of our clinic’s specialties.

If you are suffering from unexplained digestive problems or if your treatment so far has been ineffective, give us a call & book your appointment at the clinic. You will be seen by an experienced doctor who will conduct thorough investigations, discuss your symptoms with you, & ensure that the root cause of your problem is identified & treated.

Diagnosing digestive disorders requires an attentive & experienced doctor, who can look at the bigger picture in what are often nuanced & complicated presentations of symptoms. Diet & lifestyle are big factors, but making changes in these areas does not always lead to feeling better. We offer an excellent team of doctors, including our head doctor who specialises in digestive health, & can recommend the most appropriate program of testing, to ensure that you get an accurate diagnosis, rule out any serious underlying health issues, & find a treatment plan that works for you.

Symptoms

Symptoms such as gas, bloating, irregular bowel movements, loss of appetite or changes to eating habits, nausea, & stomach pain may indicate an intolerance to a certain food, but they can also indicate wider health issues. Psychological issues & stress may be a factor, as well as bacterial or fungal infections. A range of serious conditions can cause digestive disorders as well, such as colitis, Crohn’s, gallstones, Coeliac disease, ulcers, haemorrhoids, diverticulitis, & some cancers.

The symptoms of digestive disorders can be wide-ranging, varying in severity, & may come & go. They may become worse or better after eating, & may be worsened by emotional or psychological triggers, or stress. It’s important to see a doctor who can help you to underst& what’s causing your symptoms, why previous treatment hasn’t worked, & why you continue to experience ongoing digestive problems.
