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.
