IBS and Work
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a serious, long-term condition that can cause disability and disrupt both your social and working life. With around 10-20% of the UK population living with IBS, this represents a significant number who are affected in the workplace. It is estimated that Britain’s businesses lose almost £3 billion every year through sick days related to gut health.
You may feel that you are facing endless obstacles when trying to control your condition while at work. Or, if you manage someone with IBS – understanding the illness, symptoms, causes and effects within the workplace will help you and your employees reduce or even overcome many of these issues.
