WELCOME TO EIRA STOMACH CLINIC!

There are different types of problems and it is often impossible to simply point out one specific cause or solution to the problem. Sometimes the symptoms are short-term, but in case they are prolonged, you should seek help from a specialist. At Eira Stomach Clinic, you will receive individual care that is tailored to your needs.

Specialists at Eira Stomach Clinic have several years’ experience and wide knowledge of intestinal and stomach problems. The expertise of our specialists from various fields offers an extensive basis for finding the best possible treatment path for you. Here at Eira Hospital, you can easily access several specialists and nutritionists.

You don’t need to be afraid of the examinations. At Eira Hospital, we can, if necessary, perform your procedure while you are sedated. 

 

CONSULTATION WITH THE PERSONAL NURSE AT EIRA STOMACH CLINIC

You do not need to know which specialist you should see – your Personal Nurse at the Stomach Clinic will refer you to the correct one. The Personal Nurse at the Stomach Clinic is a nurse who will chart your symptoms and their duration during your first visit and determine possible causes for them and review your former diagnoses, if any. You can book your first consultation with your Personal Nurse conveniently via our online booking. You can also contact your Personal Nurse later on.

You can, if you wish, book an appointment directly with one of the specialists at Eira Stomach Clinic. We want to provide you with the mode of operation that suits you best – from your perspective.

IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME IS CONSIDERED A FUNCTIONAL DISORDER

Irritable bowel syndrome is a common cause of stomach problems. It is twice as common in women as in men. This syndrome is sometimes referred to as an irritated colon (also colon irritabile), but it causes symptoms in the intestines as a whole.

This syndrome is considered a functional bowel disorder. Even thorough examinations may not reveal any visible cause for the symptoms in the bowel, but the normal function of the bowel is disturbed, causing embarrassing and even painful symptoms.

Many people suffering from this syndrome have more gas than usual. With some patients the amount of gas is normal, but the bowel contracts easily and reacts strongly at the stretching of the bowel wall, which causes a feeling of pain. This ailment is not dangerous, but it can cause problems in everyday life and should therefore be treated.

COMMON SYMPTOMS OF IBS

  • Bloating and gas that get worse towards the evening
  • Non-specific abdominal pain in various parts of the stomach
  • Irregular bowel movements; both diarrhoea and constipation
  • Incomplete bowel movement.

The presentation and number of symptoms varies. Sometimes the symptoms manifest themselves quite often and they are painful; at other times they appear infrequently and are only minor.

No specific or unambiguous causes can be defined for the onset of irritable bowel syndrome.

The type of food, however, has been found to have a clear effect on the onset of the symptoms. Similarly, for some patients psychological factors increase the symptoms as the bowel reacts to anxiety and nervousness. Depression has also been found to affect bowel movements.

EXAMINATIONS AND TREATMENT METHODS OF IBS

If you are having new stomach problems or the symptoms are prolonged, it is worth seeing a specialist. That way we can rule out malignant diseases and eliminate unfounded anxiety. The specialist will assess the need for endoscopy and other examinations and their benefits. You don’t need to be afraid about endoscopic examinations. At Eira Hospital, we can, if necessary, perform your procedure while you are sedated.

The symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome can often be alleviated by a change in diet, by avoiding certain ingredients. Request further information from a nutritionist.
Medication may also help. Medication used for constipation and reducing the contractions of the bowel may alleviate the symptoms. Some patients find psychotherapy or hypnosis treatment beneficial.
