About Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Approximately 3% and 20% of Americans suffer from irritable bowel syndrome or IBS. The disease is more common in women than men. Some patients affected by it only have minor symptoms but for others, the symptoms are so significant that it affects their daily life. IBS is also called spastic colon, irritable colon, mucous colitis and spastic colitis. You will find that IBS is a separate disease from inflammatory bowel and is not related to other bowel problems. Symptoms of IBS vary in severity, duration and patient to patient. Symptoms last for at least three months for at least three days per month. IBS can result to damage on the intestines in some patients but this is not a common occurrence. IBS also does not increase the risk of getting gastrointestinal cancers but can still have a significant impact on your quality of life. For affected women, they may find the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome to flare up during their periods. The symptoms can occur over and over, which can make them feel more stressed or upset.
Etiology of Irritable Bowel Syndrome
It is known that there are several factors that can trigger IBS, experts still are unaware what actually causes the symptoms. Studies show that the colon becomes hypersensitive, overreactive to mild stimulation as opposed to slow, rhythmic muscle movements, the bowel muscles spasm and that results to either constipation or diarrhea. There is another theory that suggest IBS may be due to chemicals made by the body, such as serotonin and gastrin, these control the nerve signals between the brain and the digestive system. There is also research that study the relationship of certain bacteria in the bowels and triggering IBS.
Irritable bowel syndrome affects 25 million to 45 million Americans. There are some factors that increase the risk of getting IBS such as:
- Female – The risk of getting IB is about twice as much to men compared to men of having the disease. It is still not clear why, but some researchers postulate that the changing of hormones each month during the menstrual cycle has a role in it. Current studies have failed to find a link so far.
- Age – irritable bowel syndrome is much more common in people in their teens or those aged 40 years old and above.
- Family History – IBS seems to be more common if a family member has it. Some research do show that there is a genetic link to having IBS
- Emotional Stress – Some patients suffering from IBS seem to have trouble with stress, is affected with a mental disorder or have recently experienced a traumatic event in their lives, such as sexual abuse or domestic violence. It is not known what comes first, the stress or the irritable bowel syndrome. However, current research evidence suggest that stress management such as sound therapy and behavioral therapy can help in alleviating the symptoms of IBS for many patients.
- Food Sensitivity – There are some patients that have digestive systems that get upset when they ingest dairy, wheat, sugar in fruits like fructose, or the sugar substitute sorbitol. Fatty foods, carbonated drinks and alcohol can also cause upset digestion. Research show that there is currently no proof that any of these foods cause IBS, but they can trigger symptoms.
- Medications – Evidence show that there is a link between symptoms of IBS and ingestion of antibiotics, antidepressants and medications that contain sorbitol.
- Stomach flu, diarrhea, traveler’s diarrhea and or food poisoning – A small study made in January of 2021 showed that a GI tract infection can affect the immune system so that it attacks certain foods as if they are a threat to the body.
Types of Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- IBS – C – This is irritable bowel syndrome with constipation and is considered to be one of the more common variants. You have this type of IBS if you have abnormal bowel movement days that feature stools that are at least 25% hard or lumpy, but also less than 25% loose in consistency.
- IBS-D – This variant comes with diarrhea and causes the opposite problems with IBS-C. If you have this you will have more than a quarter of your stools that are loose, while less than a quarter will be hard or lumpy. You will feel abdominal pain along with more frequent urges to go. There is also excessive gas.
- IBS-M or IBS-A – If you have this form of IBS, your stools on abnormal movement will be both hard and watery. Both must occur at least 25% of the time each, in order to be classified as having such.
