WHAT IS IT?
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common disorder of the small and large intestine (bowel). Symptoms can include abdominal pain or discomfort, bloating, gas, diarrhoea or constipation, a chance in stool frequency or consistency, abdominal distention, among others. There is no cure for IBS so the aim of treatment is to control symptoms. That’s where The Yoghurt Capsule comes in! Our product is designed to assist in soothing the symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Other typical treatment options include dietary and lifestyle changes. While the condition can be a disabling disorder for some, it is not life threatening.
IBS affects around 20% of the population worldwide; however, it is difficult to diagnose a patient because few people (only one in 20) go and see a doctor because of their symptoms. IBS is the most common disease that gastroenterologists diagnose.
The condition tends to appear when people are younger and affects twice as many women as men. Onset at an older age is uncommon, however important to diagnose to exclude more serious conditions.
WHAT IS THE CAUSE?
There is no known cause for IBS. Some possibilities such as genetics, hormones, and dietary choices, infective and psychological factors have been considered, but none proven.
The onset of IBS may be triggered by an infection or inflammation of the gut or by injury to the gut.
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS?
A diagnosis of IBS is based on a careful and detailed history to identify characteristic positive symptoms, which can identify IBS but also exclude conditions that mimic it such as lactose intolerance and gallbladder disease. In some individuals, further testing (e.g. colonoscopy) will be required to exclude other disorders.
IBS affects people in different ways but pain and discomfort are symptoms that occur in all people with the condition. In many people, symptoms of IBS come and go.
Symptoms can include abdominal pain or discomfort, bloating, gas, diarrhoea or constipation, a chance in stool frequency or consistency, abdominal distention, among others.
WHAT IS THE TREATMENT?
There is no cure for IBS.
Treatment is aimed at symptom relief, with typical options including dietary and lifestyle changes.
Many people find that with the following changes, symptoms improve:
- Increase fibre in your diet.
- Add supplemental fibre to your diet such as Metamucil.
- Avoid caffeine.
- Drink lots of water.
- Limit dairy products.
- Regular exercise.
- Eating smaller meals often.
