About IBS

What is IBS?
Irritable Bowel Syndrom (IBS) is the most common gastrointestinal (GI) disorder in the United States, with one in five Americans affected. Patients with IBS experience a cluster of GI symptoms, including constipation, diarrhea, abdominal pain and bloating. Some people mainly suffer constipation, while diarrhea is the chief problem for others; some people have alternating bouts of each.
How Common is IBS?
Research suggests that IBS is one of the most common functional GI disorders. IBS is predominant in women, with females representing over 70% of IBS sufferers. A diagnosis of IBS has been reported by 10 to 20% of adults in the United States, and symptoms of IBS are responsible for over three million yearly visits to physicians.
Is there a difference between occasional stomach upset and IBS?
Yes, there’s a genuine difference between having a “bad stomach” for a few days and having a chronic condition that affects your whole life.
What causes IBS?
The mechanisms underlying IBS are not completely understood. Recent research points to three related factors. One is altered gut motility. This means there is abnormal muscle movement in the stomach during digestion, resulting in stool being passed too quickly or too slowly. The second is gastrointestinal hypersensitivity, which results in abdominal pain, bloating or discomfort. The third factor is related to the nervous system that is located in the GI tract, sometimes called the "second brain" or the "gut brain." There will be changes in bowel function if the brain and stomach are not in sync.
How is IBS diagnosed?
A correct diagnosis requires thorough information on a patient’s medical history. This is because IBS can mimic other GI disorders, such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease - two disorders marked by inflammation in the bowel.
How can IBS affect the quality of life?
As in many chronic conditions, IBS impacts emotional, psychological, social and economic aspects of life. Daily routines become complicated and difficult. People with IBS miss an average of 15 days of work or school, affecting productivity and scholastic achievements. IBS sufferers cannot attend social functions/activities because they have pain, or they have to run to the bathroom. In addition, other aspects of their life can be affected, such as sleep and sexual function, specifically pain during intercourse
Can you explain the relationship between stress and IBS?
Stress has been linked to the onset and exacerbation of IBS symptoms. Occasional or chronic stressors may lead to changes in gut motility and gut sensitivity. Stressors can be day-to-day stressful situations or long-term stressors such as a history of verbal, physical or sexual abuse, divorce, moving to a new location, or changing jobs.
How will dicon treat IBS?
Dicon recalibrates the digestive system, repairing and correcting GI function, treating the underlying disorder and thereby providing relief from IBS-related constipation and diarrhea.
