    Hiatus hernia is a very common digestive problem, which causes heartburn, indigestion and chest pains. Evidence from general practitioners suggests that as many as one in five patients they see has a hiatus hernia. Self-management is the key to treating hiatus hernia - changing eating patterns, sleeping position and posture in order to allow the gap in the stomach to heal. Tom Smith is a qualified general practitioner. Here he explains the symptoms and discusses who is at risk.

    Osteoporosis affects around three million people in the UK, and bone loss can begin as early as the late teens and early 20s. Broken bones due to osteoporosis mean that the disease is at a very advanced stage, and, while doctors can help greatly with modern drugs, some damage is irreversible. But, equally, early attention can prevent osteoporosis getting to this crippling stage, often for decades. This book looks at the best ways to keep bones young, strong and healthy, with advice on diet, exercise and lifestyle.

    Today’s young woman is at greater risk of digestive disorders than ever before. Missed meals, crash-dieting, long work hours, and a generally frenetic lifestyle all set the scene for the chronic heartburn that is the main symptom of reflux disease (known as GORD, or gastro-oesophageal reflux disease). This uncomfortable condition, which affects up to 20% of people in the western world, is also very common during pregnancy and if you are overweight.

    Do you state your problem clearly to the doctor, or are you a 'while I'm here' or 'hand-on-the-door-knob' patient, stating your main concern just as you're about to leave? Do you save your ailments up and then go to the doctor with a 'list'? Do you write down what your doctor says, and if not, how well do you remember it? Surveys show that a staggering 40% of patients go away with a completely different message to that given by their GP, while a third leave the surgery with their questions unasked because they feel too time-pressured or stressed to ask.
