Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Community, Stories & Info

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is chronic, functional gastrointestinal disorder that affects the large intestine, and causes abdominal pain, cramping, bloating, gas, diarrhea and constipation. IBS symptoms vary per case and it does not cause tissue damage and colorectal cancer. IBS is not the same condition as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), which includes Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. There is no known cause for IBS, and treatment includes managing symptoms through diet, lifestyle and stress levels.
