Health Tip of the Day

Exercise and IBS

Keeping active helps patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) cope. IBS affects up to 20 percent of the U.S. population, primarily women, and there's no effective cure. But a University of Utah study of 1,060 people with IBS found that increased physical activity improved their quality of life. Those with the condition associated such activity with greater physical functioning and reduced symptoms.
