You are not alone with IBS. Millions of people in the UK suffer from IBS and they all struggle to find the best way to manage their symptoms. IBS is a complicated condition. Only by working together and with healthcare professionals can we look to improve our understanding and treatment of IBS.
IBS Support Groups:
- Bring IBS sufferers together to share their experience in an open and non-judgemental environment.
- Educate and inform new members of the key aspects of IBS, what they can do to try and reduce their symptoms.
Your group should not aim to replace healthcare professionals, but can work with them to encourage a culture of self efficacy.
