061: Removing the BS from IBS

April marks IBS Awareness Month, but let’s face it, irritable bowel syndrome isn’t an easy topic to bring up at the dinner table. If you have irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), you understand all too well how the condition can affect your life—from work and travel plans to personal relationships. With symptoms including frequent wind, bloating and constipation that alternates with bouts of diarrhea, not to mention persistent tummy ache and exhaustion, it’s a condition that can dramatically impact sufferers’ quality of life, but that many don’t feel comfortable discussing. To shed light on IBS, and help chip away the stigma associated with it, Dr. Oakley discusses the symptoms that lead to diagnosis and measures that can be taken to control the condition.
