On Saturday, Nov. 2, pediatric gastroenterologist William Faubion, M.D., will join us to discuss the major complaint he hears about most from his patients, bellyaches. Abdominal pain is troubling for both young patients and their parents, and while the usual reason for this type of pain is constipation, that is not always the case. Sometimes it's more serious, involving weight loss, a flattened growth curve and chronic diarrhea. We hope you’ll join us.
Myth or Matter of Fact: Swallowed gum can get stuck and is a cause of bellyaches.
Note: You can hear the program LIVE Saturdays at 9 am CT on I Heart Radio via KROC AM. The show is taped for rebroadcast by some affiliates. On Twitter follow #MayoClinicRadio and tweet your questions.
