A great and very informative program, it's provides help, knowledge and support for anyone suffering from IBS, the diet and general information on how to deal with IBS are very helpful. I highly recommend others to join the program and inform themselves of how to make their IBS more manageable.

myIBS support programme has been very interesting. The information it provided has helped me understand my condition a lot more. It was helpful and gave me confidence to talk to friends about it. Due to COVID I have been unable to see a GP but I will be going back over the programme to get the info I need to speak to the GP about my condition. Thank you.

The programme covered every aspect of IBS. There were facts and tips about living with it, most I was surprised to find I didn’t know. Also new research has meant I understand more thoroughly how the condition works and how to manage it better.

The myibs support programme helped me a great deal. It helps you to understand IBS a lot better and it also helps to find what triggers it. The support you get is first class. They help a great deal. Also others who are the same can help one another and share diffent things with each other which is fine many thanks.
