Symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome
The main symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome include abdominal cramping or pain, bloating, diarrhea or constipation and increased gas. However, IBS can also cause fatigue, nausea, dehydration, bad breath, mucus in the stool, backache and/or incontinence.
Symptoms such as the above-mentioned, can often get worse after meals. IBS manifestations may last for several days and then improve or even disappear completely.
IBS can manifest with three main forms. With either predominantly diarrhea (IBS-D), constipation (IBS-C) or both (IBS-M). There is also another subtype of IBS that can appear after an infection or a stressful period (IBS-PI).
Epidemiology of Irritable Bowel Syndrome
IBS is more common among women (1.5 and up to 3 fold higher than in men) and usually manifests before the age of 50. People with a positive family history for IBS or mental problems such as anxiety and depression are more likely to be affected by the syndrome. It is estimated that IBS affects 11% of the population. While older studies supported that IBS is associated with a low socio-economic status, recent evidence suggest that the opposite is true and that growing up as a child in a more privileged environment is linked to a higher prevalence of IBS. These recent findings support the notion that IBS is a disease closely linked to industrialization and urbanization and justify the emergence of IBS in areas of Africa, Latin America and Asia.
