What is Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a common disorder that affects the large intestine. IBS is a chronic disorder that must be managed long term, however only a small percentage of people with IBS have severe signs and symptoms. Some people can control their symptoms by managing diet, lifestyle and stress. Conversely, more-severe symptoms can be treated with medication and counseling. In addition, IBS doesn’t cause changes in bowel tissue or increase your risk of colorectal cancer.
Symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome
The symptoms of IBS vary, however the most common include:
- Abdominal pain, cramping or bloating that is typically relieved by passing a bowel movement
- Excess Gas
- Diarrhea or constipation- sometimes alternating bouts of diarrhea and constipation
- Mucus in the stool
Treatment for Irritable Bowel Syndrome
The treatment for IBS will depend on the type of symptoms that you have, how severe they are and how they affect your daily life. Unfortunately, in many cases, IBS is a lifelong disorder which cannot be cured. The first step, however in treating IBS requires you to watch your symptoms, your bowel habits, what you eat and other daily activities (for example exercise) that affect your symptoms.
This step is crucial since it can help you and your doctor see patterns of symptoms in your daily life. You may see a trend of what things make your symptoms worse (such as eating dairy products) and start to avoid them.
The next step is managing those symptoms by restricting what you indulge to prevent or relieve symptoms. These include limiting caffeine and alcohol, limit your intake of fatty foods, limit dairy products (if diarrhea is your main symptom), fruit andartificial sweeteners such as sorbitol or xylitol.
In addition, increase fiber in your diet to help relieve constipation and avoid foods such as beans, cabbage, or uncooked cauliflower or broccoli to help relieve bloating or gas.
