Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common digestive condition that affects the large intestine. It is characterized by symptoms such as abdominal pain, bloating, constipation, and diarrhea. IBS is considered a functional gastrointestinal disorder, which means that there is no known physical cause, but rather a combination of factors such as irregular bowel movements, heightened sensitivity to pain, and stress.

While there is no known cure for IBS, it is a treatable condition. A doctor will perform a thorough evaluation of the patient’s symptoms before making a diagnosis of IBS. Treatment typically involves a combination of lifestyle changes, dietary adjustments, and medications. Maintaining an open and honest relationship with your doctor is key to effectively managing IBS.
