April is IBS Awareness Month: Time to Diagnose and Treat Your IBS

IBS is an increasingly common condition characterized by frequent abdominal pain and diarrhea or constipation. Various triggers for IBS exist and vary with each person, although the condition can be treated with patient-specific therapies. Every year since 1997, April has been IBS Awareness Month, and there is no better time to talk to your gastroenterologist about your symptoms, to determine whether you have IBS, and to create a treatment plan to address the condition. IBS is becoming more recognized nationwide as more people are diagnosed, and so you shouldn’t let social perceptions prevent you from having a higher quality of life and treating your IBS.
