Faye supports "IBS Checklist" Launch
Posted 20th Oct 2008 @ 19.08 by Generation Steps
An IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) Symptoms Checklist has been launched to help sufferers get diagnosed and start managing their condition, and Faye has been discussing her experience of coping with the condition with Female First...
Faye Tozer, singer, actress and former Steps star, says: “Having suffered from IBS when I was in Steps I understand how debilitating the condition can be. I was always conscious and uncomfortable when my stomach was visibly bloated in front of the cameras or on stage and it was a necessity to know where the nearest toilets were- just in case!
Luckily I managed to get help and was diagnosed with IBS by my GP when I was 22. I know it can be embarrassing to talk about which is why I am supporting the launch of the IBS Symptoms Checklist, which can help make getting diagnosed that much easier. There is definitely no need to suffer in silence. Now that I have my IBS under control I can get on with my life and so can you.”
