The Educated Patient - About IBS

The International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders created this website for patients who have been diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome.

The International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders created this website for patients who have been diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). It details the characteristics and treatment of IBS, features links to informative clinical publications and press releases, and provides information about advocacy and support resources. Visitors will find information on diagnosing IBS, bacteria, stress, IBS in men, celiac disease, constipation, and the burden of the illness, among many other topics. Of great use is the “Courageous Stories” section, which houses hundreds of stories from others with IBS, categorized by such topics as daily living, stress, sacrifice, and support for teens.
