Irritable bowel syndrome or IBS affects about 1-in-10 of us in the UK and causes gut symptoms such as:

  • Stomach pain
  • Bloating
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhoea
  • Needing to open your bowels urgently

Stress and anxiety play a role in making IBS symptoms worse and sometimes the worry of not knowing what's causing gut symptoms feeds into this vicious circle.

The trouble is that it can be difficult to tell the difference between conditions like gut inflammation or coeliac disease and IBS based on symptoms alone. There is no test for IBS specifically but guidance from the British Society of Gastroenterology recommends that everyone with suspected IBS should have some tests to check for the other common causes of gut symptoms.

Based on these guidelines, we've developed the Essential IBS Screening Test which tests for gut inflammation, coeliac disease and H. pylori infection all in one go. Ruling out these common conditions quickly and easily is the first step to getting your gut symptoms under control.

What's tested in your Essential Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Screening Test?

  • Gut Inflammation

    Gut inflammation is a common cause of gut symptoms such as stomach pain and diarrhoea.


  • Coeliac Disease Risk

    Coeliac disease affects 1% of the population and most people don't know they have it. It causes indigestion, stomach pain, diarrhoea and weight loss.


  • H. pylori Infection

    Helicobacter pylori infection affects up to 1-in-5 of us in the UK. It causes stomach inflammation and ulcers which causes indigestion symptoms.
