Irritable Bowel (IBS)
Irritable Bowel (IBS)
What Is Irritable Bowel Syndrome?
25 – 40 million Americans suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Also known as "spastic colon" or "irritable colon", IBS is considered a “functional” bowel disorder. There is an alteration of gut function, but no evidence of any structural or organic disease that would explain the presence of symptoms.
IBS victims often suffer chronic persistent changes in their bowel habits that disrupt many aspects of their lives. Work productivity, social functions and family life are areas that are typically impacted. It can be very difficult for an IBS sufferer to explain their problem to co-workers and friends. It can also be difficult for friends and co-workers to understand what an IBS victim endures.
In simple terms IBS typically involves constipation, diarrhea, or cycling between constipation and diarrhea. In addition, there can be pain, cramping, bloating, gas, and even mucus in the stools.
The specific causes of the underlying disease responsible for the symptoms which doctors have agreed to label “Irritable Bowel Syndrome” remain as yet unclear. There are many physical events, and theories as to their causes, under independent investigation.
What IS known are some of the mechanisms by which the body generates these symptoms doctors agree to label as “Irritable Bowel Syndrome”.
So far these include:
- non-allergic immunologic food or additive intolerances (“lost oral tolerance”)
- non-immunologic food intolerances
- exaggerated response of the body to chronic and acute stress and anxiety which are associated with the personal consequences of IBS symptoms
Other symptoms that are not essential but support the diagnosis of IBS:
- Abnormal stool frequency (greater than 3 bowel movements/day or less than 3 bowel movements/week);
- Abnormal stool form (lumpy/hard or loose/watery stool);
- Abnormal stool passage (straining, urgency, or feeling of incomplete evacuation);
- Passage of mucus;
- Bloating or feeling of abdominal distension.
