When your child has tummy troubles

Causes of abdominal pain in children can range from constipation and food poisoning to UTIs and appendicitis. — Positive Parenting

Gastroinstestinal (GI) symptoms, such as abdominal pain, diarrhoea, constipation and vomiting, are common reasons for parents to seek medical consultation for their children.

The GI tract extends from the mouth to the anus, and includes the pharynx (throat), oesophagus, stomach, small intestine and large intestine, as well as organs such as the liver and pancreas, which secrete enzymes and other important substances into the GI tract to facilitate digestion.
