The American Journal of Gastroenterology has published the American College of Gastroenterology’s  newly updated guidelines for the management of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) in its December 2020 issue.

Seven named authors from the fields of gastroenterology  and gastrointestinal health psychology, represent five United States universities or academic medical centers that are leaders in IBS research. These are the Mayo Clinic, Cedars Sinai, Northwestern University, the University of Michigan, the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, and  the University of  North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The previous ACG guidelines were published in July 2018.

The abstract, downloadable PDF of the full article, and the link to the supplementary material can be accessed online here.

IBS Impact hopes that the updated guidelines improve health care provider awareness of IBS, as well as effective treatment for Americans with IBS.
