Easing the Pain and Symptoms of IBS-D
Managing your IBS-D
Irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea (IBS-D) is a common disorder that affects the large intestine. Symptoms vary from person to person and can have a significant impact on sufferers. We talk to an expert in the field of gastroenterology, Dr. Mark Pimentel, MD, FRCPC, who discusses the diagnosis of IBS-D and how important it is to discuss your symptoms with your doctor. There’s no need to be embarrassed. We will also hear from two women living with IBS-D, Ashley Walkley and Desiree Guarino, their stories may be different but overall they are very similar to others who struggle to find help.
The good news is, there are ways to manage your IBS-D.
