Larry TremblayIrritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) affects about one in every 10 people.  Millions of individuals of different ages, genders and ethnicities are impacted, yet we don’t talk about it.  Because of the nature of the symptoms, it feels “inappropriate” to discuss.  However, talking about seemingly private issues is essential if I want to help those out there struggling with IBS to lead more active and productive lives.

IBS is a complex digestive disease with many different symptoms that come and go unexpectedly over a long term.  People don’t know what kind they will be faced with each day – maybe pain, diarrhea, constipation, or a combination of many symptoms.  IBS has no cure and, while treatment options are available, they don’t work the same for everyone and sometimes don’t work at all.   More research and dialogue about IBS is necessary to offer the best options of care for those who are affected, many of whom are missing work, skipping outings with their families and fearful to leave the house all together.
