Do you think you've got a digestive issue?
We can address your concerns.
IBS is increasingly common and always unpleasant. You will frequently feel gut discomfort and pain, and diarrhoea or constipation are often part of the problem too. It can also be a long-term condition that can blight everyday activities. We are here to help.
As specialists in IBS care we will be your partner in care, taking the time to understand your health concerns. This means identifying the reasons for your health issues. The causes behind the symptoms. We will also help you put in place a comprehensive programme that modifies your diet and lifestyle. Our role extends to supporting you through the process, reviewing and adapting the programme if needed.
We are frequently asked these questions:
Gas and bloating don't just happen. They are symptoms of underlying problems in your gut health. Sometimes caused by stress, poor diet or medication.
These conditions can lead to feelings of isolation and embarrassment.
Your gut health is dependent on many different factors. Our home test will help you determine what's going on and put together a game plan to help relieve you of this problem through diet changes, lifestyle tweaks and the right supplements for your unique situation.
Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) is an inflammatory condition of the small intestine. It's a common complaint and easy to test for. As with all our tests, we've selected our SIBO test to help you understand your body better. We're confident that your test results will provide you with valuable information about your gut health.
Why take a SIBO test?
If you are experiencing bloating, gas, nausea, vomiting, cramping, fatigue, and diarrhoea, these are typical symptoms of SIBO. You may also be having a loss of appetite, and weight loss or low-grade fever, malaise, and sometimes joint inflammation.
We recommend an easy non-invasive method to diagnose SIBO, the lactulose hydrogen breath test. To take this SIBO test you breathe into a balloon to measure the baseline level of hydrogen in the breath. Then consume a small amount of lactose and you measure the quantity of gases produced at 20-minute intervals for three hours. A raised level of hydrogen and methane in the first 90 minutes after consuming lactulose indicates excessive bacterial fermentation and is indicative of SIBO.
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a very common but not openly discussed health condition. Yet it can impact all areas of a sufferer's life, and affect their ability to work.
Because the disorder is gut and digestion related, and some symptoms are considered hard to acknowledge and talk about, IBS can be embarrassing. Lacking a specific pathology, or a certain cause makes it is also an elusive subject.
Indeed one person's experience of IBS is rarely the same as another's. Typically though sufferers feel chronic abdominal pain, bloating and have unpredictable bowel movements. Constipation and diarrhoea vary, with anxiety and depression accompanying them. In summary then, IBS can be both a long term and a disruptive condition that can affect people's working lives.
The Equality Act of 2010 states that an impairment doesn't have to be a diagnosed medical condition. A physical impairment is where something is having a substantial and long-term adverse effect on your ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities.
This impairment "doesn't have to stop you doing anything, as long as it makes it harder. It might cause you pain, make things take much longer than they should or mean that you're unable to do an activity more than once." Citizens Advice Bureau
So IBS can clearly be classed as a disability. As specialists in treating IBS we can help you address and resolve it. The best place to start is with a call to talk things through.

About the IBS Clinics team. Specialists in IBS care.
Tracey Randell formed IBS Clinics to be specialists in IBS care. Tracey studied clinical nutrition at BCNH College of Nutrition and Health. Dealing with her own IBS and weight issues was the catalyst to initially study nutrition for Tracey. Both issues resolved during her studies, and she discovered a passion for nutrition and a strong desire to help other people to get well, resulting in her later qualifying as a Nutritionist. (Tracey is now a lecturer at BCNH).
Today IBS Clinics are a team of leading digestive health specialists. We offer the highest standards of professional, evidence-based treatments and programmes. Our clear focus on you and your needs is always delivered with empathic support.
