April is IBS Awareness Month
IBS is one of those issues no one wants to talk about. The thing is 10-15% of people are affected by this!!
Many people go years with symptoms before seeking help.
Often I'm told by patients that they go to multiple doctors and are told nothing is wrong, the labs are all fine.
Symptoms can come and go, and it can be difficult to identify what makes symptoms worse or better.
The first step towards getting relief from symptoms is having a doctor who believes you and who is going to help you navigate through the process of what triggers symptoms and what you can do to minimize or avoid symptoms.
