New insights into IBS

Inspire is delighted to have teamed up with Expat Life magazine to bring you more great content to do with Thailand

Digestion is a process that should happen automatically and quietly, like a soft humming in the background. Something we should not have to pay much attention to.

This can sound like an alien concept to those that suffer from chronic digestive issues. When you are dealing with abdominal pain, chronic heartburn, bloating, gas, chronic diarrhoea or constipation or reactions to food, it’s more like loud noise; a persistent discomfort that affects your ability to fully be present and feel at ease. In the worst case you may literally be planning your life around your digestion. IBS or Irritable Bowel Syndrome is one of the common causes of chronic digestive distress. An estimated 7 to 21% of the population suffers from this functional gut disorder that is characterised by many of the symptoms described above, the main ones being chronic diarrhoea or constipation or bowel movements alternating between the two as well as abdominal pain or discomfort (1).

To date, an IBS diagnosis is arrived at through a tedious and time-consuming process of exclusion of other gastrointestinal diseases, which is not only a frustrating process but costly as well. A colonoscopy is usually part of the investigative process and while it’s a relief when colonoscopy results come back clear, you end up walking away without a solution to your problem and possibly the suggestion that it may all be in your head. Some important new areas of research in IBS are starting to throw some light on this common condition and more importantly they are presenting us with exciting new diagnostic tools and treatment strategies (2).
