I think Richard, our forum administrator, is doing a great job keeping these fraudster spammers at bay. We have a large membership base willing to help new members as well as seek help themselves.
This can only happen effectively if we keep the spammers out. There are other forums I watch which have been so flooded with spam messages as to make them unusable.

Thanks, Richard.

Hi Fiona

You are now a "Newbie Plus" - your first post has been okayed so now you can post without having to wait for authorisation.

Unfortunately we have so many attempts at spam posting we have to operate the policy so that it didn't become of forum of links to trainers and handbag sites :)

Best wishes

Hi Tel and welcome to the club.

The new Barrett's UK website (Barretts.org.uk) is a directory from where you may find all you may wish to know.
On the Links page, you will see the following progressive reading list:

1. Simply Put describes how Barrett's Oesophagus develops in simple terms.

2. The Journey on the Barrett's Wessex website is from a talk by a consultant gastroenterologist in 2012 describing the Journey from diagnosis to treatment.

3. Down With Acid is the website of the free encyclopaedia of everything to do with acid, reflux, complications and management, in layman's language.

If you want to delve deeper, the seminal work by William Beaumont, "Experiments and Observations on the gastric Juice" (1833)

freely downloadable here is a good starting point

and the wesbite, BarrettsInfo (by Ryan Hill Foundation) was good but closed due to lack of funds. Fortunately the content s available as a pdf download here.

Meanwhile, please do feel free to ask any questions on this forum. Hopefully you'll find all the answers you want.
