Melissa’s story (based on an interview):

Melissa is an active young adult who has a busy lifestyle as a successful college student pursuing a degree in social work and a part-time job in an after-school care program for elementary school students. She experienced occasional digestive symptoms since age 12, including upset stomach, bloating and cramping, causing her embarrassment when among her friends. “Some years ago, when my group of friends in high school wanted to go out to eat on the weekends, I often would say I was busy to avoid embarrassment from my digestive symptoms, which seemed to occur at least once a week. And there was the time that I was on my first vacation, which was a cruise, and became sick with an upset stomach and cramping. My symptoms were incredibly overwhelming.”

“Today, my digestive symptoms are managed by a prescription medication, and I have found that adding IBgard® capsules to my routine helps with my occasional upset stomach and bloating so that. I can go to work or sleep more easily.”

Melissa exercises regularly by going on many bicycle rides around her neighborhood and taking family vacations with her parents and sister to Florida and other tropical places. “I try to stay as positive as I can because I have a great life, wonderful family and friends, and an amazing career – and life -- ahead of me.”
