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.

An essential survival guide for parents whose children suffer with persistent and often debilitating pain Approximately ten million children are living with chronic pain. Most people would be surprised at such numbers, but for the parents of these children, the challenge of helping a pain-stricken child live a normal life is a frightening and frustrating reality. Chronic pain in children can manifest as abdominal, migraine, or facial pain. It also stems from a wide variety of disorders such as juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, cystic fibrosis, hemophilia, and childhood cancers. No matter what type of chronic pain the child suffers with, a parent must be armed with an understanding of how a child's expression and experience of pain differs from an adult's. Trained in pediatric anesthesia and intensive care at Boston Children's Hospital, Dr. Elliot Krane has devoted his entire professional life to refining and innovating techniques, strategies, and therapies to relieve the suffering of children with pain.

It will help you: Recognize, measure, and evaluate your child's pain properly Learn about the many alternative pain-management approaches that can be used at home Dispel fears about addiction if your child is prescribed a narcotic Find an appropriate pain-management clinic for your child Reduce the stress and anxiety in the home in a way that benefits the entire family You may not always be able to eliminate chronic pain entirely, but you can succeed in minimizing your child's suffering.
