Pall Mall Medical - for all your private healthcare needs, whether you are self-paying or have private medical insurance.
Gastroenterology looks at issues which affect the gastrointestinal tract (also known as the digestive system) which includes conditions affecting everything from the oesophagus down to the colon and rectum. Pall Mall Medical’s private gastroenterologists offer expert gastroenterology assessments for a diverse range of symptoms, which can lead to better management and treatment of any problems.
Our consultants in gastroenterology have a range of specialist interests and experience; below are just some of the conditions we can help you to diagnose and manage.

People suffering from coeliac disease may find that eating gluten can trigger symptoms including stomach pain, bloating and diarrhoea and long term this may cause problems such as malnutrition or weight loss. Coeliac disease causes the immune system to over react when gluten is found in the body, causing the above symptoms.
A lack of iron in the body can cause anaemia which has a range of symptoms including tiredness, heart palpitations and breathlessness. People with anaemia may also look very pale. Women who experience heavy periods or who are pregnant are often at a higher risk of anaemia.
Common symptoms of being intolerant to a certain food include stomach pains and bloating as well as symptoms similar to IBS.
