Irritable Bowel Syndrome/IBS

What is Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)?

Irritable Bowel Syndrome, commonly referred to as IBS, is a gastrointestinal disorder characterized by a cluster of symptoms that can include abdominal pain, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, or alternating bowel habits. It is a chronic condition that affects the large intestine (colon) and can vary in severity from person to person.

Causes of IBS:

The exact cause of IBS is not fully understood, but several factors may contribute to its development:

  • Abnormalities in the Nervous System: The gut-brain axis, which connects the brain and the gut, may be hypersensitive in individuals with IBS.

  • Muscle Contractions in the Intestine: Abnormalities in the rhythmic contractions of the intestine may cause discomfort.

  • Inflammation in the Intestine: Mild inflammation of the intestines may play a role in some cases.

  • Changes in Gut Microbiota: Imbalances in the gut microbiome could contribute to symptoms.
