About this book

This book provides up to date information about IBS and its developments in the last decade and provides ways of controlling IBS based on the authors' long experience in treating IBS patients. Although IBS is a tortuous disorder and interferes with the patients’ daily activities, it does not develop into a serious disease or kill its sufferer. Understanding and learning ways of controlling IBS does not only help patients to lead normal lives, but also enables them to help their children and closest relatives.
