☑️ IBS is a chronic gastrointestinal disorder that often leads to persistent abdominal discomfort. IBS typically affects the large intestine, and symptoms typically include abdominal cramping, bloating, and change in bowel habits.
☑️ Some people with IBS suffer from chronic constipation, some with persistent diarrhea. Others go back and forth between the two. Although IBS can cause a great deal of discomfort, it does not harm the intestines.
☑️ Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is the most frequent functional gastrointestinal disorder with a prevalence of 5-11% in most countries. IBS affects about twice as many women as men.
☑️ The exact cause is unknown and there are no specific tests for it. Your doctor may run tests to be sure you don’t have other diseases. These tests may include stool sampling tests, blood tests, x-rays, and a possible colonoscopy. Most people diagnosed with IBS can control their symptoms with diet, stress management, medications, and supplements like NUTRAGESIC Enteric Health.
