Diagnosing IBS

If your doctor asks you to describe your bowel movements – what would you say?

In 1997 Dr Ken Heaton from Bristol Royal Infirmary enlisted 66 volunteers to change their diets and keep a diary.

The result was the famous Bristol Stool chart (πŸ“ΈCabot Health), used all over the world to help patients accurately answer this embarrassing question.

So whether it is hard nuts🌰, snakes🐍 or ragged edges🦠 the diagnosis of IBS is now much easierπŸ‘
