IBS Guidelines and Online Patient Tools Helpful for Diagnosis, Treatment

Reading Time: < 1 minutes

A recently published evidence-based review of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) management and the release of online patient tools by the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG) may help diagnose the disease with fewer costly tests and guide IBS therapy decisions. The online interactive patient tools consist of both a questionnaire to help patients determine whether their symptoms are consistent with IBS and a treatment matrix in which patients check treatments they have tried. The responses to the questionnaire and the treatment matrix will help tailor the treatment approach to the individual patient.
