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