Bowel

Bowel Care

As a conservative estimate there are around 6.5 million people in the UK today with some form of bowel problem, that’s 1 in 10 of us. There’s no discrimination either, as both men and women, young and old can be affected.

Despite being so common, bowel difficulties are still not as openly talked about as they should be and many people needlessly suffer in silence and don’t get the help they need.

The choice and availability of treatments, products and medicines have never been greater and there is plenty of good advice and support available. In some cases, bowel problems can be completely cured and in others, they can be effectively managed with the right products or treatments so you can regain your quality of life.

On the following pages you will find information on the many different kinds of bowel problems, from constipation and diarrhoea through to Diverticular Disease and faecal incontinence, also commonly referred to as bowel incontinence. Available treatment and product options are included for each individual condition.

There are many forums on this site, but the ones mainly associated with our work are the forums entitled Incontinence, Men’s Health, IBS and Women’s Health. Join our forum to see what kind of questions people in a similar situation to your own are asking.
