Does irritable bowel syndrome exist? 

Thurday 8th February 6.30 - 8.30pm


by Ben Brown

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is an umbrella diagnosis made using symptom-based criteria that does not help to direct treatment. Consequently, people with IBS are often poorly managed and symptoms remain a burden for approximately 20% of people. An alternative view is that IBS does not exist as a clinical entity but is in fact a clinical presentation of several distinct, independent and often treatable underlying conditions.

Clinical management then requires an approach based on our evolving knowledge of the underlying multi-factorial origins of “IBS-like” symptoms unique to each individual.  Accessible and cost-effective nutritional, metabolic and digestive assessments can help identify the cause of symptoms and direct and personalise treatment.

This talk explores the underlying causes of digestive symptoms as well as the clinical assessment tools that can be used to identify them. We also look at how assessment can be used to inform personalised dietary, lifestyle and nutritional interventions that improve physiological function, restore gastrointestinal health and resolve symptoms.

  • In this important lecture, you will explore:
  • What the underlying causes of “IBS-like” symptoms are.
  • How to identify unique causes of digestive symptoms.
  • Personalised treatments, based on lifestyle and nutritional medicine.
