Chronic digestive disorders are more common than you think. Two often overlooked conditions in the United States are irritable bowel syndrome with constipation (IBS-C), which affects up to 13 million adults and chronic idiopathic constipation (CIC), which affects up to 35 million adults. Recurring abdominal pain and constipation, including hard stools, and infrequent and incomplete bowel movements, may indicate a chronic GI condition, such as IBS-C or, if you have these symptoms with little or no abdominal pain, CIC.
Check out some facts and statistics about these common - but often overlooked - disorders. This infographic highlights data and figures to help those suffering understand they are not alone and they should not suffer in silence.
