April is Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Awareness Month and here are some things you should know about IBS!

What Is IBS?

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a chronic gastrointestinal (GI) disorder that refers to a group of symptoms that affect the abdomen including abdominal cramping or pain, bloating, gas, and altered bowel movement patterns. IBS is a type of functional GI disorder in that the GI tract functions abnormally, leading to the symptoms, with no sign of damage due to disease. [1]

IBS can be severe for some people, interfering with work or other daily activities. However, IBS does not lead to more serious diseases such as cancer, it is not contagious, and it does not harm the large intestine (colon).

The cause of IBS is currently unknown, but understanding the symptoms and treatments for IBS can help those who suffer from it manage their condition and improve their quality of life.
