IBS: Irritable Bowel Syndrome

What is Irritable Bowel Syndrome?
    Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common disorder of the intestines marked by the following symptoms:
  • Cramps
  • Gas and bloating
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea and loose stools
IBS may be caused by a combination of stress and a high-fat diet. Fatty foods worsen symptoms by increasing the intensity of the contractions in the colon, thereby worsening symptoms. Dairy, caffeine and chocolate in particular seem to have the most negative effect on IBS sufferers.

IBS is not the same as colitis, mucous colitis, spastic colon, and spastic bowel. Unlike colitis, IBS does not involve any inflammation and is actually called a “functional disorder” because it presents no obvious, outward signs of disease.

Although all IBS sufferers have symptoms of abdominal pain and disordered defecation, treatment needs to be individualized and should focus on the predominant symptom.

    Statistics
  • Americans spend $8 billion each year on medical costs related to IBS
  • Absenteeism resulting from IBS significantly affects the work force
  • Most people with IBS do not seek medical care.
  • 40% percent of people develop symptoms between 35 and 50 years of age
  • IBS is recognized in children, many adults can trace symptoms to childhood
  • 70% with IBS are women
  • Women who have had a hysterectomy for chronic pelvic pain are twice as likely to have IBS
  • Onset by elderly individuals is rare.
    What Causes Irritable Bowel Syndrome?
    Many factors go into play here. Primarily food sems to be the biggest cause. People with sensitive digestive systems tend to be challenged with IBS the most. Poor diet can cause many of the problems.

  • Food
    As noted above - Dairy, caffeine, alcohol, fatty (especially fried) and chocolate in seem to have the most negative effect on IBS sufferers.
  • Stress
    The colon has many nerves that connect it to the brain. These nerves control the normal contractions of the colon and cause abdominal discomfort at stressful times. Individuals with IBS, stress can stimulate colon spasms. Stress makes the mind more aware of the sensations that arise in the colon.
  • Medications
    Many medications are full of chemicals that our bodies do not recognize. Hence the gut cannot process the chemistry and it can cause a disruption in the digestion system.
