Abdominal pain, bloating, cramping, diarrhoea and constipation are the most common symptoms of IBS, Irritable Bowel Syndrome. It is an incredibly common condition that affects 1 in 3 people in the UK and can be very distressing. Everyday life, for people suffering from IBS, can be very uncomfortable. With the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a great change in people’s eating habits and an increasingly sedentary lifestyle along with significant health anxieties, which has led to an increase in gastrointestinal functional symptoms. Dr Rishi Goel, Consultant Gastroenterologist at New Victoria Hospital, gives guidance on the latest approach to IBS treatment during IBS Awareness Month.
