Written by leading medical experts from County Durham and Darlington NHS Trust, myIBS provides 12 weeks of dedicated information, sent to you by email in bite-size chunks.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a common condition affecting the digestive system. The main cause is unknown but eating certain foods and stress are known to exacerbate symptoms that can last for a day or so, to several weeks or even months.
Some of the topics the programme covers include:
- Symptoms & treatments
- Common triggers & irritants
- What to ask your GP or consultant
- Patient stories and hints & tips
- Latest research and much more!
Such a fantastic program packed with helpful information. I've been living with IBS for years, with very little support from my GP or hospital consultants. The weekly IBS segments have been very interesting to read. I didn't feel bogged down with the usual medical jargon, everything is very user-friendly. If you suffer from IBS or know someone who does, then this program is for you. Thank you for yet another insightful and helpful guide.
This programme is very informative & empowering. It helps to build your confidence because you realise that there is support available when you need it.
The mains support programme was really helpful and informative and gave me lots of advice on things I could do myself to improve my condition
The myIBS was a really accessible, helpful programme with lots of useful tip that can easily be be applied in day to day life.
I would highly recommend this course it’s gives so much information will definitely learn something new that you didn’t know before so helpful
I managed to learn a lot of information from this programme and it has really helped me in my dealings with my IBS. Knowing that there is a lot of support out there really helps my cause and I would thoroughly recommend the programme to all IBS sufferers and their families/support.
Access to information in clear concise way to help me manage the condition
The myIBS support programme have covered everything important to me, yet no one wants to talk about, including my own family, i was able to print and send to family members to help them understand better what I am dealing with.
A brilliant support programme, that makes you aware of all the problems you come across with IBS and how to deal with them. This programme gave me the confidence to seek help from my doctor and with both help from the doctor and this amazing programme, I feel I can control my IBS better.
I was diagnosed with IBS 19 years ago and have had no support from any healthcare professional in this time...they just didn't want to know. This course has taught me a lot about my condition (which is both C and D at times) and has given me pointers which have improved my life! I would recommend it to anyone who has IBS...even if you think you know most things about it (as I did)...you will get something out of it!
The programme is full of useful and informative information which covers everything from the causes of IBS, the signs to look for and the treatments available to help ease the problem. As the weeks go by the programme builds up into a very comprehensive set of sheets covering all you need to know. Each sheet is laid out with easy to follow information and detailed diagrams explaining what to look for etc. If you suffer from IBS and you want to find out more about it, where to go to get more information and how to deal with it, then I would definitely recommend that you sign up for the programme.
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.
