Constipation, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Food Intolerances @ The Marriott Hotel
Jan 28 @ 9:30 am – 10:45 am
Constipation, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Food Intolerances @ The Marriott Hotel   | Scotland | United Kingdom

Spire Murrayfield Hospital is holding a talk all about constipation, IBS and other Gastrointestinal complaints. Bowel symptoms are common causes of health concerns today. Some symptoms are signs of serious health problems such as colon cancer and need to be investigated as a matter or urgency. Other symptoms may be more suggestive of irritable bowel syndrome. Whilst this is common and relatively less serious, these symptoms are often very disturbing and worrying nevertheless.

Careful assessment of these symptoms will allow the most appropriate investigation to be chosen and a plan of treatment started that will bring benefit to all with gut symptoms. Consultant Gastroenterologist Dr Chris Fraser will talk around these issues, alongside Dr Fred Pender – Dietician. There will be ample opportunity to ask questions after the presentation.

Could women be political before they got the vote? ‘Yes’, says Catherine Allgor, Director of Education at the Huntington Library and noted scholar of women and politics. In the new capital of the United States during the early republic, white ruling class women borrowed heavily from English court culture to further their families’ political aims. In doing so, they built the structure that would support the United States’ future as a democratic nation-state.
