A non-invasive way to diagnose and treat IBS

Gastrointestinal diseases, such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) are extremely common, affecting up to 20% of people in western countries. Symptoms include pain, bloating and altered bowel habits. It can be debilitating, embarrassing, and have a huge impact on quality of life. Current methods for diagnosing IBS typically include invasive tests, such as s colonoscopy. The Noisy Guts Project is developing an acoustic belt that records gut noises over time so doctors can accurately screen, diagnose and monitor gut disorders and diseases. Their Fitbit for the gut helps patients identify triggers and symptoms. www.marshallcentre.uwa.edu.au/research/the-noisy-guts-project
