A road map for understanding and managing children's stomach
problems -- from symptoms to treatment, and everything in between


From baby's colic to an older child's complaint of "my tummy hurts," abdominal distress is painful for kids and worrisome to parents, ranking second only to upper respiratory tract infections as the most common reason for non-routine visits to the pediatrician. In many cases, the discomfort is easily remedied and even prevented -- but some kinds of pain indicate a more serious affliction. How can parents make the distinction?

Drawing from more than two decades of experience as a pediatric gastroenterologist, Dr. Joseph Levy offers a prescriptive guide to children's digestive complaints. My Tummy Hurts equips parents with the information they need to help alleviate their children's pain and prevent many disorders from occurring. They'll discover how to ask the right questions, identify problems, recognize the symptoms requiring urgent medical attention, and much more, including:


  • How the digestive system works and why it sometimes malfunctions
  • The major causes of stomachaches
  • Identifying disease triggers, including those related to stress and diet
  • What to do if your child is lactose- or wheat-intolerant


My Tummy Hurts, organized for easy reference, is an indispensable handbook for parents and caregivers.

Book Description Fireside Books. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 288 pages. Most parents feel insecure about appraising the symptoms, and evaluating the degree of discomfort: all they can see is that their child is in pain. My Tummy Hurts will provide parents and care-givers with a guide devoted to the puzzling and often frightening topic of stomachaches. It will equip them with the ability to ask the right questions, to identify the problem(s), to offer practical advice, and to draw a clearer road map: how to manage common problems and how to recognize the important factors that make the difference between benign forms of pain and those requiring immediate or even urgent medical attention. My Tummy Hurts will cover the issues and necessary guidelines that play a central role in the health of growing children. It will allow the care-giver to handle the problem with a clear head and factual understanding of the possible triggers for discomfort, discovering the culprits and acting effectively. Taking care of children is a partnership between the caregiver and the healthcare provider. The better the communication is between them, the better the care will be. Therefore, Part I of My Tummy Hurts is developed to provide a general foundation on how the digestive system works its components and inter-relationships. Part II discusses the causes and function of pain, while Part III gives parents a wealth of information to help them decide if their childs pain is manageable or if it requries a visit to the doctor. Part IV addresses serious digestive problems that must be treated by a specialist, each chapter outlining the current thinking on a wide variety of conditions, their clinical symptoms, what is needed to confirm the diagnosis, as well as the management options on hand.
