IBS and Acid Reflux Evening

Wednesday 22nd April, 7-8PM

Do you frequently suffer from IBS and or Acid Reflux?

If the answer is yes then you're not alone. It is estimated that 20% of people experience IBS symptoms at some point during their life, and effects twice as many women as men.

Come and see our specialist consultant gastroenterologist, Dr Robert Przemioslo, who is giving a free talk about symptom control, prevention and treatment.

During the night, patients will have the opportunity to ask questions about their condition and gain valuable advice on how best to manage it.  

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common condition of the digestive system. It can cause spells of stomach cramps, bloating, diarrhoea and constipation.

The symptoms of IBS usually appear for the first time when a person is between 20 and 30 years of age, and tend to come and go in bouts, often during times of stress or after eating certain foods.

The exact cause of IBS is unknown, but most experts agree it's related to an increased sensitivity of the entire gut, which can occasionally be linked to a prior food-related illness. Psychological factors such as stress may also play a part in IBS.

IBS can be painful and debilitating, and can have a negative impact on your quality of life. However, by making some simple changes to your diet and lifestyle, the symptoms can be minimised and patients are able to live a normal, full and active life.
