More IBS research


Hi All

I was contacted this morning by email by another doctor at the same university as the other one I've been liaising with.

If you'd like to take part in the research please could you email her whereupon she will respond back with a couple of documents for you to read and she will also organise a Zoom call if you'd like to take part in the study. Her details are (it was a personal email just to me):

Dear Alicia

I understand you recently contacted my colleague, Dr. Rabia Lalani, for involvement in an IBS research study.

I work in the same institute as Dr. Rabia Lalani and have been advised that you may be interested in participating in further IBS research.

The current study assess the possible causes of IBS and IBS related symptoms in different groups of patients with IBS (Please see information sheet for more details).

The study consists of:

1.A video call to go through our inclusion/exclusion criteria (conducted via zoom)

2.A series of online questionnaires.

I have attached two participant information sheets to this email.

1.If you suffer with IBS, constipation type, please open the document named ‘IBS with constipation symptoms’

2.If you suffer with IBS, diarrhoea, or mixed bowel habit , please open the document named ‘IBS with mixed symptoms’

If this study is of interest to you and you would like to participate please respond to this email with a convenient date and time for a zoom call.

If you would like further information about this study before making a decision, please feel free to respond to this email or call me on 07506002972 (Monday – Friday, 9am – 5pm).

Kind Regards,

Anisa will send the documents to you once you have responded. She did say that it would be better to email her rather than phone.

Best of luck if you take part.

Hi Alicia,

Sorry, I meant to reply to your other post. The one after you had taken part in the study, have you ever heard of the book Your Gut Has a Mind of Its Own, The Second Brain ? Forgive me if you know all this.

Best wishes,

Hi Charlie

That's not a problem at all. No I haven't heard of that one, I've got 'Eat Yourself Healthy' by Dr Mrgan Rossi, The Gut Doctor and 'Meet Your Bacteria', again this is another gut book. I'll have a look at the one you've mentioned.

Thank you.


My pleasure,

I don’t know if you aware but when we are formed in the womb, the brain develops first then the gut. So, they have similar structure and functions, also some chemicals. If you are interested and don’t know already, then google the enteric nervous system. I’m not medically trained in this area but know a few who are. I suffered with GI problems for years. Good luck and stay safe 😘

And love to Lynne (only if you get chance mind) 😘

No I didn't know that but i also have a book on the gut and brain connection which I haven't yet read.

Of course, I'll pass on your love.

Thank you 🙏😍


Thank you Alicia and if anyone does participate then please say how you get on.

Good luck with this Alicia and I'm interested how you get on and think this is exciting so well done you. 👍😊

Thank you Jerry and of course I'll let you know how I get on. I've got a follow up phone call tomorrow/Wednesday from the first research, then I should be able to feedback on that one.

Thank you and it is, the more research the better for the younger generation.

Have a good evening.

Alicia 🌈👍
