Xpeer course: Gut microbiota in the management of gastrointestinal symptoms
About this article
Synopsis of the course
Does the microbiota affect GI symptoms? The answer is yes, as largely demonstrated in the literature. But then, can we use the microbiota to treat GI symptoms? Join Dr. Eamonn Quigley in this review of the most recent and interesting data on the interaction between the microbiota and GI symptoms. We will review the effects of the microbiome on upper, and lower GI symptoms (focusing on IBS), bowel habit, bloating, flatulence, and distension, and we will get some practical tips to provide the best care to our patients with GI symptoms. Are you going to miss it?
