Doctor: Well…, you’re Jennifer Black, aren’t you? The sixth form?

Jennifer: Yes, Doctor, it’s me.

Doctor: Your teacher said you suddenly fell ill in the PE lesson. What exactly happened?

Jennifer: To tell the truth, I’ve been feeling unwell all morning. When I tried to get up I felt very weak and stayed in bed for an extra fifteen minutes to cope with the weakness and the pain in my stomach. I was nearly late for the first class because of that.

Doctor: OK, but during the PE class… did you do any tiring exercises? Too much running or any difficult exercises?

Jennifer: No, not really! We did some aerobics and played volleyball. I felt sick during the game and nearly fainted. .

Doctor: OK, let me take your blood pressure. … Well, it could be higher… You are feeling weak because of a drop in your blood pressure. Don’t worry — it can be easily raised with a cup of strong sweet tea. What did you have for breakfast, Jenny?

Jennifer: I didn’t have any breakfast actually.
Doctor: Was it because you were going to be late for school? Did you skip breakfast as you didn’t have time for it?

Jennifer: No, it’s not that. I don’t normally eat breakfast because I want to lose weight. I want to be slimmer.

Doctor: Yes, I see. Can you describe in detail what you usually eat during the day? How many meals do you have? Lunch? Dinner? Supper?

Jennifer: One. At about 4 o’clock… I don’t know what to call it. I have a glass of juice and some salad, and a yogurt. Sometimes I skip the yogurt.

Doctor: Look here, Jenny, can’t you understand that you are ruining your body? This dieting will end up in an eating disorder, which will cause serious stomachaches, which you mentioned you’ve already been having, heart problems, kidney problems… You may become an easy target for any infection or disease. For now, I strongly recommend the medical examination called endoscopy. You’ll swallow a small flexible camera, so we will be able to see your stomach from inside.

Jennifer: No-o-o…

Doctor: We’ll have to, unfortunately. I’ll call the hospital and make an appointment for you. And I’ll let you know about the exact date and time tomorrow, OK?

Jennifer: OK. Will you call me?

Doctor: It would be better if you drop in. I want to check your blood pressure just to be sure. And now we are going to design your new diet. You must follow it.
