One in five people has symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and yet it still often takes the average patient an inordinate amount of time to receive a proper diagnosis. All the while they are experiencing tremendously challenging symptoms that impact dramatically on their enjoyment of life and are being subjected to unnecessary procedures and diagnostics. The symptoms typically include bloating, constipation, functional diarrhoea, chronic abdominal pain and Functional Dyspepsia (FD, the medical term for a condition that causes an upset stomach or pain or discomfort in the upper belly, near the ribs). This comprehensive book provides current and concise information and understanding on the condition of IBS and FD. Dr. Alvin Newman discusses the symptoms in a thorough yet approachable manner, including the impact of these symptoms, diagnostic tools, diseases, conditions and complications associated with both conditions. Equally vital is integral information on managing both IBS and FD through lifestyle changes, drug therapy and dietary therapy. There is also extensive information on current IBS research and self-help for patients in the form of support groups and reliable internet sources. Diagnosis can be difficult because of the range, severity and diversity of ailments, and prescribing successful treatments is no less difficult. Armed with the information found in this book, patients can come to a better understanding of their condition and ultimately a better understanding of how to mange the condition.
