Australia-based physician aims to raise awareness about disorder.NEW SOUTH WALES, AUSTRALIA -- Irritable Bowel (IBS) is a common condition, however, there is still much to be learned about the causes and effective treatment for IBS and Dr. Alex Simring is hoping to raise awareness about this often misunderstood disorder.Common symptoms of IBS include abdominal pain or discomfort, which is associated with abnormal bowel habit. Abdominal pain, bloating, diarrhea and constipation are all common. There are certain symptoms which are not typical for IBS, and these include weight loss, nocturnal symptoms and rectal bleeding.Celiac disease is a common condition which can have similar symptoms to IBS. Discussion with a medical practitioner is important in diagnosing IBS.The most common ways to treat IBS include dietary modification, behavioral therapy and medications. There has been recent research which suggests that certain foods can worsen symptoms of IBS. The FODMAP diet has been studied at Box Hill Hospital by Dr Gibson's team. The theory is that the sugars in certain foods are poorly absorbed by people with IBS. These sugars are fermented by bacteria in the colon and lead to symptoms of bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea and constipation. These rapidly fermentable, short-chain carbohydrates (FODMAPs) are commonly found in wheat, onions and many fruit and vegetables.IBS is diagnosed by clinical symptoms. When there are certain features which are not typical of IBS,further testing may be required. This may include bloods tests, endoscopy or colonoscopy. Breath testing may be useful to confirm short-chain carbohydrate malabsorption and can help tailor dietary advice. Consultation with a dietician who is expert in IBS is often very useful. Remember that the foods listed in FODMAP are generally healthy foods, however abdominal symptoms may worsen when many of these foods are consumed in combination.
