Irritable Bowel Syndrome: Symptoms, Treatment and Diagnosis

Irritable bowel syndrome is characterized by being a common disorder whose symptoms are clear, but its medical treatment and diagnosis must be carried out 12 weeks after its appearance.

Irritable bowel syndrome is a fairly common disorder, estimated to affect approximately 6% of the population, especially women, and it usually appears around the age of 18.

Although in fact it is considered a common disorder that affects thousands of people in our country every year, the truth is that a patient is diagnosed with irritable bowel when the doctor is unable to identify any other cause. That is to say, the patient will suffer from irritable colon when their symptoms are related to the typical symptoms of this disorder, but other similar ones are discarded (as is the case, for example, of nervous gastritis).

This means that there is no medical treatment conceived as such for the dissolution of  irritable bowel syndrome, but rather that we are faced with a series of treatments or specific advice to alleviate its symptoms.

Irritable bowel symptoms

As we will see in the next section dedicated to the diagnosis of irritable bowel syndrome, for us to be faced with this disorder the symptoms indicated below must appear continuously for 12 weeks or more throughout the year:

  • Gas and flatulence.
  • Sensation of abdominal swelling.
  • Continuous constipation that alternates with moments of diarrhea.
  • Cramps that go away when you go to the bathroom.
  • Need to go to the bathroom after getting up, or when you have just eaten.
  • Abdominal cramps and upset stomach.
  • Fatigues.

Diagnosis of irritable bowel

The diagnosis must be carried out by a medical specialist. But for the avoidance of doubt, the patient must feel their symptoms for at least 12 weeks over a year.

Irritable bowel treatment

Taking into account the way irritable bowel syndrome is diagnosed, it is “normal” that we are not faced with a medical treatment that helps resolve it.

This is because the treatment to follow is basically to change the nutritional habits of the person and modify their lifestyle. Since this syndrome tends to affect nervous people more, it is advisable to live a calm and stable life, away from daily worries and stresses.

Basically, the treatment consists of following the following advice:

  • Live a quiet life, away from nervousness, worries, stress and anxiety.
  • Increase consumption of foods rich in fiber.
  • Consumption of probiotics, which take care of the intestinal flora.
  • Consumption of easy-to-digest foods.
  • Avoid coffee, alcohol and tobacco.
  • Consumption of low-fat foods of animal origin.
  • Eat slowly and without haste.
  • Practice physical exercise, which helps us de-stress.
