IBS meeting connects patients and professionals

Have your say

A conference that gave Sheffield patients with Irritable Bowel Syndrome the chance to express their perspectives on the condition directly to medical experts has been held in the city.

Sheffield-based The IBS Network hosted the free one-day event, which saw a number of experts and patients speak on what it is like to live with IBS and what can be done about it, whether the diagnosis matters, what patients can eat, what patients want from research and how patients can work more effectively with their health professionals.

The event, which coincided with the charity’s 25th anniversary, also featured a cookery demonstration from a nutritionist and food expert, as well as a number of exhibitions and showcases.
