In this text, a leading specialist in gastroenterology focuses on some of the most common problems of the lower intestinal tract - the bowel or "gut" - and offers new ways of coping with afflictions and reliable approaches to prevention. Dr Janowitz explains new methods and instruments of diagnosis and outlines the risks they carry. In addition, he shows how to determine whether such day-to-day problems as diarrhoea, constipation and rectal bleeding should be treated at home or brought to a doctor's attention. Covering the wide range of colonic and intestinal disorders, from the most common irritable bowel syndrome, to more serious complaints like ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease, colon cancer and sexually transmitted disorders, the author provides basic information on the symptoms and causes of each problem, the possible diagnostic tests, recommended treatments and outlook. Dr Janowitz also discusses high fibre diets, food allergies and the impact of a person's emotions on his or her lower intestine.
