Aims to raise awareness about IBS and encourage people who have symptoms of IBS to seek medical advice.

It may come as a surprise, since it’s often regarded as a minor condition, but irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is one of the most burdensome chronic ailments reported by patients. Yet, there is a general lack of awareness about IBS, and most people suffering with the condition have not received a diagnosis.

April is IBS Awareness Month. The International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders (IFFGD) encourages people experiencing persistent or recurring symptoms that may be IBS to see their doctor for help.
