Irritable Bowel Syndrome

By Margaret Shepard, @Margaret_Marie


Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common intestinal problem that affects more than 30 million Americans. Signs and symptoms can include cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, gas and a change in bowel habits. While IBS is a chronic condition, many people can control their symptoms by managing diet, lifestyle and stress.

On this episode of the Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. Robert Kraichely, a Mayo Clinic gastroenterologist, discusses treatment for IBS.

IBS MAYO Clinic Radio. That was a very interesting broadcast. I have posted on Digestive Health as having IBS and other digestive problems. My son had told me to cut back on fat intake and I couldn’t remember the other thing, now I remember it was caffeine, as mentioned on the broadcast, which also reinforced the importance of exercise. I have been going to a therapist every 2 weeks and have found some improvement in my symptoms, which I had not connected to the therepy, but now am considering the possibility to any improvement. I will take a look at the low FODMAP dieting which I had not seriously concidered.
