It is an extremely common and distressing problem affecting up to 20% of the population at any one time. The symptoms include bloating, wind, abdominal pain, diarrhoea and constipation, and the condition can vary in severity. This introductory guide, by an experienced consultant, answers 50 key questions asked by people with IBS and their families. It provides a summary of symptoms and treatments, and offers practical advice on living life with IBS. There is a glossary at the end of this book which contains more terms than you will find within the body of the book.
