Health Days 2023

IBS Awareness Month

If you have irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), you are not alone. Its prevalence is estimated to be around 10% to 15%. However, many people remain undiagnosed and unaware that their symptoms point to a medically recognized disorder.
Focus on important health messages about diagnosing and treating IBS and improving quality of life.

  • Relaxation and stress reduction exercises help effectively for people with irritable bowel syndrome.
  • If Irritable Bowel Syndrome affects your sleep, it is good to improve your sleep habits, such as:
  • getting a regular resting period before bed, maintaining a consistent wake-up time, using the bed for sleep only, avoiding caffeine for at least 4 hours before bed, or not staying awake in bed longer than 20 minutes
  • If you suffer from constipation, make sure you eat breakfast, as it is likely to stimulate the colon and move the bowels.
