What is Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)?

Irritable Bowel Syndrome is often just called ‘IBS’. Although the precise cause is unknown, the muscles of the bowel appear to be very sensitive to things like:

  • Stress, eating and drinking habits
  • Food allergies or intolerances
  • Stimulants such as coffee
  • Hormonal factors
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common condition that affects the digestive system.
    • It’s usually a lifelong problem. It can be very frustrating to live with and can have a big impact on your everyday life.
    • There’s no cure, but diet changes and medicines can often help control the symptoms.
    • The exact cause is unknown – it’s been linked to things like food passing through your gut too quickly or too slowly, oversensitive nerves in your gut, stress and a family history of IBS.

Such things can trigger painful abdominal cramps or spasms if you have a sensitive bowel. You may also feel bloated, with excess wind and abdominal discomfort. Sometimes IBS can include diarrhoea or constipation.
