Webinar Description

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is the most commonly diagnosed digestive disorder in the United States and affects 10-20% of the population worldwide. Although IBS is most often diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 40 years, many patients recall the onset of symptoms during childhood or adolescence. Additionally, seniors who still suffer from IBS-related symptoms may need to modify how they manage this chronic condition, including considering new factors such as alterations in the digestive system, physiological changes, polypharmacy considerations, and adjustments in lifestyle.
