Episode 18: Healing stomach ulcers

Healing stomach ulcers

Several years ago, I witnessed the type of medical emergency I had until then only ever encountered in books. A patient literally vomited up what looked like most of the blood in his body. It turns out he had a large stomach ulcer and suffered significant blood loss as a result. While few cases as so severe, smaller amounts of blood loss in our stool is more common than you might think. In this episode we discuss medically sound principles for preventing and healing stomach ulcers. We also interview Dr. Ola Olabintan, a senior house officer training to become a specialist on this, in an area of medicine known a gastroenterology.

You can also listen to the full episode on YouTube, iTunes & SoundCloud.
