Mayo Clinic Radio: Irritable bowel syndrome / esketamine for depression / kids and vaccines

April 1, 2019

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common intestinal problem that affects more than 30 million Americans. Signs and symptoms can include cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, gas and a change in bowel habits. While IBS is a chronic condition, many people can control their symptoms by managing diet, lifestyle and stress.

On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. Robert Kraichely, a Mayo Clinic gastroenterologist, will discuss treatment for IBS. Also on the program, Dr. Jennifer Vande Voort, a Mayo Clinic psychiatrist, will discuss esketamine nasal spray — a fast-acting treatment for depression that recently was approved by the Food and Drug Administration. And Dr. Nipunie Rajapakse, a Mayo Clinic infectious diseases specialist, will share what you need to know about childhood vaccines.
