IBS Awareness Month 2022
It is estimated that a whopping 10% to 15% of people currently suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), making it a very common condition. Many of these remain undiagnosed, however, which may have something to do with the lack of awareness that IBS is a medically recognised disorder.
This is why, ever since 1997, the month of April has been designated as IBS Awareness Month.
The theme for 2022
The focus of IBS Awareness Month 2022 is to reduce the stigma surrounding the condition and of course, raise awareness for IBS. This in turn helps to:
- Prompt further research into the condition
- Improve care for patients
- Increase educational opportunities
The positive impacts of increased awareness are not necessarily limited to IBS either. In fact, the wider gastrointestinal and digestive health communities benefit greatly from the above.
