What is Irritable Bowel Syndrome?

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a colon, or intestinal, condition that causes the wall of the large intestine to contract either too strong, long, or weak, which affects the way food passes through your system, or the digestive process, and can lead to mild or severe bowel issues. 

It is typically identified by having a different kind of stool, such as stool that is too hard, too soft, or too thin. IBS is almost always accompanied by belly pain or discomfort and trouble with bowel movements, either by going too often (diarrhea) or not often enough (constipation). IBS, though not a life-threatening condition, can be a long-term condition that may make people feel like they are less able to participate in everyday activities.

There are four types of IBS:
  • IBS with diarrhea
  • IBS with constipation
  • Mixed IBS, an alternating pattern of diarrhea and constipation
  • Unsubtyped IBS, which is a category all its own.

IBS symptoms vary from person to person. Also, some people may experience periods when their symptoms are more severe, and other times their symptoms may improve or appear to clear up altogether. However, the most common symptoms of IBS include: 
  • Cramping
  • Abdominal pain
  • Bloating
  • Gas
  • Diarrhea 
  • Constipation
  • Occasionally, bouts of constipation and diarrhea
  • Mucus in stool
More severe symptoms of IBS may include: 
  • Abdominal pain especially at night
  • Bleeding from the rectum
  • Weight loss
Common Causes of Irritable Bowel Syndrome 

The exact cause of IBS is unknown. However, there are several factors that can trigger IBS symptoms. 
  • Certain foods can trigger their IBS symptoms. Individuals with food intolerances, such as gluten intolerance, food allergies, or poor dietary habits tend to exhibit severe symptoms of IBS. Foods such as spices, carbonated beverages, fruits, milk, beans, cabbage, cauliflower, chocolate, and alcohol have also been shown to trigger IBS symptoms.
  • Stress is can be contributor to IBS symptoms. Many people report that their IBS symptoms become aggravated or tend to worsen during bouts of increased stress, such as starting a new job or dealing with family situations, etc. 
  • Hormones can play a role in IBS. For instance, IBS tends to affect more women than men; therefore, research supports that hormonal changes may possibly play a role in developing the condition. Many women report that their IBS symptoms become more severe around or during their menstrual cycle.
  • Medication can trigger IBS symptoms. Certain medications, such as some antacids, iron, and high blood pressure medications have been shown to spur IBS symptoms in some people.
  • Enzyme deficiencies contribute to IBS symptoms. When the pancreas fails to produce sufficient enzymes, it prevents your body from properly breaking down and digesting food, which can cause bowel issues. 
  • Infections, illnesses, and inflammatory bowel diseases like Crohn's Disease or ulcerative colitis have also been shown to bring about IBS symptoms.
