Ultimately, the study found that treatment completers experienced statistically - and clinically-significant improvement in their overall quality of life and gastrointestinal symptom severity, among other outcome measures, immediately after receiving treatment.
The study also found that the success of the treatment was partially mediated by reductions in catastrophic thinking and visceral sensitivity - both common features of IBS.
This study represents a move towards wider access to evidence-based treatments for IBS, as well as a major effort to test a self-help book in a randomized, controlled manner prior to the book’s publication.
