July 10, 2008 - PRLog -- Latest research has shown that irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common, debilitating, multifactorial, functional gastrointestinal disorder where a definitive aetiology has not been established and no uniformly successful treatment exists. The condition is very prevalent in developed countries with IBS symptoms experienced by 8-22% of the population1. IBS thus poses a significant economic burden on the community as well as the individual.

IBS is characterised by a combination of symptoms and signs, such as abdominal pain, constipation (IBS-C), diarrhoea (IBS-D) — or alternating between both (IBS-A) — a noted change in both the frequency and consistency of stools, rectal mucus due to hypersecretion of colonic mucus, dyspeptic symptoms including anorexia, flatulence, gastro-oesophageal reflux (GOR) and nausea, and an emotional component where anxiety and/or depression are often noted. Abdominal pain is often relieved following defecation.

You need to consider the following:

* DO YOU SUFFER FROM BLOATING, FLATULENCE, PAIN? DO YOU SUFFER WITH CONSTIPATION OR DIARHOEA, OR DO YOU ALTERNATE BETWEEN BOTH?

* DO YOU NEED TO SPEAK TO SOMEONE WHO CAN OFFER YOU A SOLUTION?

* THEN YOU NEED TO SEE SOMEONE PROFESSIONAL WHO IS CAPABLE OF GIVING YOU CORRECT, SOUND ADVICE REGARDING YOUR DIET, AS WELL AS OFFERING YOU SAFE AND EFFECTIVE TREATMENT.
