By Dana Sparks

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) are two very different chronic digestive system conditions that are sometimes confused with one another. On this week's program, gastroenterologists Dr. Sunanda Kane and Dr. Yuri Saito discuss the differences between IBD and IBS, and explain how each is treated. Also on the program, Dr. Thomas Allison, director  of the Mayo Clinic Sports Cardiology Program, talks about a simple treadmill test that can help predict whether you'll live 10 years or more. And psychologist Dr. Karen Grothe has strategies for keeping the weight off after losing it.

Myth or Matter-of-Fact: Inflammatory bowel disease and irritable bowel syndrome are both conditions from which full recovery is possible.
