Irritable Bowel Disease / Gut Dysfunction
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common disorder, affecting some 58 million Americans. Yet it’s also one that many people aren’t comfortable talking about because the signs and symptoms may be embarrassing. Some signs and symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome are:
- Abdominal cramping
- Bloating and gas
- Diarrhea, constipation or both
Many people have only mild signs and symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome. However, for some the problems can be disabling, and in those cases, you usually have severe signs and symptoms that don’t respond well to medical treatment.
