Understanding IBS

IBS is a functional gastrointestinal disorder characterized by symptoms such as abdominal pain, bloating, and changes in bowel habits. It does not cause inflammation or damage to the digestive tract and is considered a less severe condition compared to IBD.

The exact cause of IBS is not fully understood, but factors such as diet, stress, and abnormalities in the gut-brain axis are believed to play a role in its development. Diagnosis of IBS is typically based on the presence of specific symptoms and the absence of any alarming red flags, such as unexplained weight loss or rectal bleeding.

It may also be worth considering dietary changes, as certain foods can trigger IBS symptoms. Working with a nutritionist or dietitian to identify and eliminate trigger foods from your diet may provide relief from symptoms.
