I’ve been di­ag­nosed with ir­ri­ta­ble bowel syn­drome; can I still drink cof­fee?

Good Health (Australia) - - Be Nourished -

AUn­for­tu­nately the jury is still out on this one. Some stud­ies show tea and cof­fee can be a trig­ger for IBS, whereas oth­ers show they have no ef­fect. One study found cof­fee was the sev­enth most com­mon re­ported trig­ger of IBS symp­toms. In sum­mary, don’t feel you have to give up tea or cof­fee if you have IBS, but it may be worth not­ing how you feel af­ter con­sum­ing it.
