IBS guidelines set down

IBS guidelines set down

 Nurses can now refer to a clear set of symptoms to positively diagnose irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) thanks to new National Insittute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidelines.

IBS is usually characterised by abdominal discomfort, bloating, changes in the bowel and affects up to 1 in 10 people at some point in their lives.

It is hoped that the guideline will encourage more people living with IBS symptoms to approach their doctor or practice nurse.
