What is IBS?
Do you have IBS?
Odds are, even if you don’t, then you know someone who does. There are estimates that up to even 1 in 5 people may suffer from it!
It’s also highly likely that if someone you know has IBS they just aren’t talking about it. The symptoms are really something people like to discuss about openly and can make sufferers feel embarrassed or uncomfortable.
Irritable bowel syndrome can greatly impact the person’s daily activities and quality of life. There’s a lot of stress and uncertainty around where and when they may experience a flare-up of symptoms.
So they definitely need an extra dose of understanding and empathy!
