Gut, bowel, colon

When referring to the lower part of our digestive system, names such as ‘gut’, ‘bowel’ and ‘colon’ are commonly used. While we all have one (well most of us) and they all perform the same functions, the number of problems that can be experienced can vary significantly from person to person.

Some issues can include: Bowel incontinence, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (Ulcerative Colitis Colitis and Crohns Disease), constipation and diarrhoea etc.

From April to October Love Your Gut is working hard with healthcare professionals to help further increase public health awareness on gut health issues. Your local hospital, clinic or health centre may even be holding a Love Your Gut Campaign!

For healthcare professionals who are interested in holding a gut health stand request one though
