You might not know it – people with digestive health issues don’t like to bring it up – but your employees or members could be struggling with their GI health right now.
A growing problem
On average, GI health issues cause 35 days of lost work productivity each year. In fact, IBS is the second most common reason for employee absenteeism, following the common cold.
That's two times the number of people with diabetes. And while 74% of American adults are living with GI symptoms, more than half haven’t brought it up with their doctor.
$136B yearly cost
Digestive conditions cost $136 billion annually. For IBS alone, direct costs are as high as ~$10 billion and indirect costs as high as $20 billion.
