IBS is the most common disorder of the digestive system and also one of the most common reasons for visits to GPs.
IBS is thought to affect up to one in five people at some stage in their life, and it generally develops between 20 and 30 years of age but can begin to manifest in early teens, after pregnancy or after a disruptive event like food poisoning. Around twice as many women are affected as men. (Sources: NHS & Core Charity UK).
Market research shows that many people identify with the symptoms they suffer from, rather than having a formal IBS diagnosis. The symptoms most people identify with are:
Bloating – This can worsen throughout the day resulting in anxiety and stress. ͞My clothes don’t fit͟, ͞I need different sized jeans͟
Cramps/Hard feeling in the stomach.
Unpredictable bowel movements– alternating diarrhoea and constipation
