IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME ( IBS ) TREATMENT
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common disorder that affects the large intestine. Signs and symptoms include cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, gas, and diarrhea or constipation, or both. IBS is a chronic condition that you’ll need to manage long term. Only a small number of people with IBS have severe signs and symptoms. Some people can control their symptoms by managing diet, lifestyle, and stress. More-severe symptoms can be treated with medication and counseling. IBS doesn’t cause changes in bowel tissue or increase your risk of colorectal cancer.
The signs and symptoms of IBS vary. The most common include:
Abdominal pain, cramping, or bloating that is typically relieved or partially relieved by passing a bowel movement
Diarrhea or constipation — sometimes alternating bouts of diarrhea and constipation
Mucus in the stool
The precise cause of IBS isn’t known. Factors that appear to play a role include:
Muscle contractions in the intestine.
Inflammation in the intestines.
Changes in bacteria in the gut (microflora).
