IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) is debilitating and common, affecting up to 20% of the population. Typically, affected individuals struggle to find a solution. In this book, Dr Dawn aims to present effective tips and suggestions. Starting with a lucid explanation of the anatomy of the digestive system, it covers everything from conditions such as diverticulitis and coeliac disease, to food allergy and intolerance, and the difference between them. New research into FODMAPs (a type of carbohydrate in common foods) is also explored. We also look at the physiological mechanisms of IBS, including inflammation of the gut lining, along with advice on lifestyle factors and realistic tips on how to help yourself. Dr Dawn also examines medical tests and examinations, when they may be necessary, and exactly what doctors are looking for.
