A pediatric gastroenterologist can decide whether it’s a lesion of an organ or symptoms appearing as the effects of stress or diet. We examine children as early as infant age.
When should you turn to a pediatric gastroenterologist?
- Infant who falls frequently
- Stomach ache, flatulence
- Abnormal weight gain or loss
- Eating disorders, lack of appetite
- Difficulty passing stools, constipation, bloody stool, etc.
- Phenylketonuria, metabolic diseases
- Jaundice, liver disease
Examinations available at our clinic:
- Breath test to detect lactose, fructose intolerance
- Helicobacter infection screening from stool (equivalent to H2 breath test)
- Celiac test (Biocard rapid test)
- Abdominal ultrasound
- Calprotectin test: We determine from a blood sample if a gastroscopy is indeed necessary. This allows us to avoid unnecessary and uncomfortable endoscopic examinations.
- Endoscopy and colonoscopy under general anesthesia (provided by Dr Zsuzsanna Vojnisek)
