IBS

IBS stands for Irritable Bowel Syndrome. It is a general term meaning there is a common gut disorder. Many things can contribute to causing IBS such as:

  • Anxiety and stress
  • Diet related such as intolerance to foods
  • Bad bacteria in the gut
  • Overactive muscles of the gut 

The main symptoms of IBS can be a bloated feeling, pain and discomfort and the type of stools produced. Some sufferers of IBS can have diarrhoea (IBS-D), some can be constipated (IBS-C) and some can alternate between constipation and diarhoea (IBS-A).
