Irritable Bowel Syndrome

IBS has no identifiable cause. Because of this, it is important to visit your physician if you experience any of the following symptoms for a long period of time: Pain in your abdominal region, mucus in your stool, transformations in the makeup of your stool, diarrhea/constipation, bloating, and others. These symptoms are commonly triggered by stress, large meals, and certain foods that your body is particularly sensitive to. It is important to note these triggers to move forward with treatment. These triggers are what cause the muscles in your small intestine and colon to contract with more force, resulting in either constipation or diarrhea. While IBS is a chronic condition, it can be treated. Eating more smaller meals in the day with a heavy in fiber diet, reducing stress levels, getting the optimal fluids in the day, and maintaining a steady exercising routine are just some lifestyle changes that will help you cope with IBS and reduce its symptoms. Various forms of medication are available to complement the lifestyle changes in treatment. The key with IBS is to learn to understand the dietary and external triggers that cause your symptoms, and move forward with simple changes to minimize pain.
