Introduction of IBS

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common disorder affectingthe intestines and stomach, also called the gastrointestinal tract. People with IBS usually have sensitive bowels that are easily ‘upset.’ IBS is quite a common problem in women and often comes on in the late teens or early twenties. It may come and go over a person’s life.

Symptoms of IBS

The main symptoms of IBS are:

  • Chronic constipation or diarrhea, or alternating between the two
  • Abdominal discomfort or pain is often relieved by passing feces or wind

Other symptoms include:

  • Feeling that you haven’t finished a bowel movement
  • Whitish mucus in the poo/stool
  • However, it doesn’t damage the colon or other digestive system parts.

Diagnosis of Irritable Bowel Syndrome

IBS can often be diagnosed after other conditions are ruled out by carefully talking to the patient about the symptoms and getting blood tests, a colonoscopy, or a scan.

Diagnostic tests will usually require if:

  • You have a family history of bowel cancer
  • You are over 40 years old when you develop symptoms
  • If it is suspected that your symptoms are caused by other illnesses like coeliac disease, diverticulitis, IBD, or polyps

  • Severe pain
  • Severe diarrhea
  • Fever
  • Weight loss
  • Bleeding from the back passage
