The Essential IBS Book
IBS is an increasingly common disorder, and this book comprehensively addresses all the issues associated with it.
Hundreds of thousands of people have symptoms of IBS, yet it often takes an inordinate amount of time for patients to receive a proper diagnosis. While they are subjected to unnecessary procedures and diagnostics, they are experiencing tremendously challenging symptoms that have a dramatic impact on their enjoyment of life. These symptoms typically include bloating, constipation, diarrhea, chronic abdominal pain and functional dyspepsia (the medical term for a condition that causes an upset stomach or pain or discomfort in the upper belly, near the ribs).
Discussed in a thorough yet approachable, easy-to-understand manner are symptoms, the impact of these symptoms, diagnostic tools, and diseases and complications associated with IBS. Equally vital is integral information on lifestyle changes, drug therapy and dietary therapy.
Armed with the information found in this book, patients will come to a better understanding of their condition and, ultimately, a better understanding of how to manage the condition.
