Digestive problems – ask an expert in a live webchat


London: Do you suffer from digestive health complaints? Have you ever eaten anything and felt bloated or sick? If so you may be intolerant to certain types of food. Thankfully such complaints can be tackled by making simple changes to your diet, so you may not need to spend time sitting in the waiting room at the doctors or put up with unnecessary discomfort.

To give you some helpful advice on food intolerances Dr Sarah Jarvis is holding a 30-minute digestion clinic online on Friday 18 January at 2pm. She will be talking about the difference between allergies and intolerances and answering all of your questions on digestive health. She’ll also be talking about the Lactofree Elimination Challenge Diet, which is a great starting point for testing your tolerance to lactose.

Digestive complaints are actually quite common in the UK, for example up to 1 in 7 people suffer from Lactose Intolerance alone. Common symptoms include bloating, stomach cramps, nausea and abdominal pains, which can prove difficult to live with. Sarah will be offering professional advice on how to rid yourself of these symptoms and will also explain how you can enjoy your food without fear of further digestive issues. So if you’ve been suffering on the food front, why not submit a question?

Dr Sarah Jarvis joins us live online at www.webchats.co.uk/webchat.php?ID=487 on Friday 18th January at 2pm to discuss digestive health.
