Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Irritable bowel syndrome, abbreviated to IBS, is a nagging problem that affects the functionality of the large intestine. It can cause abdominal cramping, bloating, and a change in bowel habits. The symptoms may be mild initially but it can cause severe abdominal discomfort and intractable diarrhoea. Irritable bowel syndrome is a chronic problem that needs constant care to prevent aggravation of symptoms.
IBS commonly affects around 10 - 20% of the population and is more common in women than men.
Irritable bowel syndrome is commonly associated with constipation, which is difficulty in passing stools or hard stools, which is interspersed by episodes of diarrhoea or loose stools. It usually begins in young people in their 20’s or 30’s but may affect any age group. Symptoms can vary from mild to moderate - often aggravated by stressful life events. Diagnosis of IBS is often based on a pattern of symptoms over several years - similar to the diagnosis of migraine headaches.
It is usually managed by a combination of dietary changes, lifestyle adjustments and drugs. Recently, dietary supplements have been used with hopeful results. NutriNZ provides you with two dietary supplements that can supplement your treatment in achieving a healthy solution.
