IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) and IBD (inflammatory bowel disease) are different disorders that intersect sometimes. Join Shira and I (Maddie) as we share our experiences and talk with Carlo Di Lorenzo, MD about IBS, IBD, and the complex and fascinating interactions between the brain and the gut.

Episode 28 of imPACt includes patient & clinician dialogue about IBS, IBD and the gut-brain connection


"I think a lot of patients know that intuitively, just from living life with IBD, your mental state and cognitive state really does impact your gut. I think it's fantastic you are putting language to that." - Maddie to Dr. Di Lorenzo

Listen in to learn more about IBS, IBD and the intersection between these two disorders. Consider how the brain and the gut connect and interact and hear our perspectives on the importance of discussing the significant impact the brain-gut connection can have on IBD patients' well-being. Dr. Di Lorenzo brings an amazing clinical perspective to this conversation, so be sure to listen to this episode on Spotify
