Exercise Improves Quality of Life for IBS Sufferers

Share

The results of a new study by Dr

The results of a new study by Dr. Ashok K. Tuteja from the University of Utah in Salt Lake City has found that exercise helps those who suffer from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) to cope with their illness. This is the first study to look at the effects of exercise on this population even though it is recommended as a mode of treatment.

Tuteja and colleagues took a look at the association between exercise habits and reported quality of life among IBS patients. The findings showed that those who engaged in regular sports or leisure activities had a higher perception of overall health and physical functioning than those who did not participate in regular activity. This study reports that although exercise does not change the symptoms of IBS itself, those who are more active will have a better outlook on life, allowing them to feel better overall.
