Tips to help relieve your IBS

As part of IBS Awareness Month this April, The IBS Network has put together tips on how to help relieve your symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

At any one time, it’s estimated that around 10-20% of the UK population will suffer from IBS, a condition that causes symptoms including abdominal pain, bloating, constipation and diarrhoea. The illness has no specific cause, no distinctive pathology and no single effective treatment. IBS symptoms can vary considerably from person to person and in the same person at different times. IBS should always be diagnosed by a qualified medical practitioner.
