What if my child has a gastrointestinal issue?
KixCare provides patients with on-demand access to pediatricians and specialists, who are ready with solutions for all your child's medical needs.
Gastrointestinal issues affect the organs located along within the gastrointestinal tract (called the GI tract for short).
These organs include:
Gastrointestinal issues commonly affect and cause problems anywhere along the digestive system.
There may be problems with your child’s GI tract if they exhibit these symptoms:
GERD (gastroesophageal reflux, or acid reflux)
Feelings of nausea/vomiting
It's normal for your child to deal with stomach pain from time to time. However, if your child is dealing with serious discomfort or any of the symptoms above, contact a pediatrician for medical advice. Your child's pediatrician will be able to carry out examinations to determine the cause of the condition. In addition, your pediatrician can suggest treatment/medication to help with your child's condition. Along with the initial consultation, your pediatrician will be able to schedule follow-up appointments to further evaluate and care for your child's digestive health.
Note - KixCare Pediatricians can address most questions about gastrointestinal issues, but if you believe your children’s condition is serious, please don’t hesitate to go to the hospital.
