Autumn, and especially October, represents an exciting time for children. Kids are back in school - learning new things, engaging in sports and other recreational activities, and making new friends as well as reuniting with old ones. And, the holiday season is fast approaching, kicking off with Halloween at the end of the month.
But, all of the excitement of the season can also introduce extra challenges for a child with a functional gastrointestinal (GI) or motility disorder.
In this month's Digestive Health Monthly newsletter, we look at what parents and family members of a child with a chronic digestive condition can do to help manage symptoms and maximize the potential of the season.
