    UK Study showing a link between low vitamin D status and IBS symptom severity. Written by Dr Bernard Corfe Oncology lecturer at University of Sheffield.

    This piqued my interest. Its calling for more RCT information but suggests that vitamin D status needs to be tested alongside all patients with IBS since there appears to be a connection. He also suggests that supplementation may help reduce symptom severity.


    Abstract for the paper here:
