When you experience frequent bloatedness, wind, constipation or diarrhoea, you’ll probably shrug them off. But these are the same symptoms often overlooked in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), an autoimmune condition that can lead to complications when not properly treated. In conjunction with World Inflammatory Bowel Disease Awareness Day on 19 May, consultant gastroenterologist Prof Dr Raja Affendi Raja Ali breaks down the taboos surrounding IBD, and helps us understand how to manage the condition. This show is part of Health in a Pod, a health education campaign brought to you by Johnson & Johnson Malaysia.
