Living with BAD

In conjunction with a specialist dietary blogger,
we have produced a comprehensive section on
all things diet related.

  • painful, watery and explosive chronic diarrhoea

  • urgently needing the toilet / having accidents
    (faecal incontinence)

  • numerous bowel movements a day often occurring
    during the night

  • foul smelling diarrhoea which is yellow / greasy in appearance

  • excessive wind

  • painful stomach cramps

  • moderate to severe bloating

I’ve had the condition for many years, passed off as IBS. I would go urgently 14/15 times a day. I could not go out anywhere for several years, or if I did I mapped out the location of every toilet nearby. I found I lost confidence.

We have set up a petition to try and gain more funding for research into BAD.

The more funding there is, the more research is done and this will improve medication shortages in the future.

Please help us change the future for BAD patients by signing our petition.
