IBS Is Not Life Threatening

Points to Remember
IBS is a disorder that interferes with the normal functions of the colon. The symptoms are crampy abdominal pain, bloating, constipation, and diarrhea. IBS is a common disorder found more often in women than men. People with IBS have colons that are more sensitive and reactive to things that might not bother other people, such as stress, large meals, gas, medicines, certain foods, caffeine, or alcohol. IBS is diagnosed by its signs and symptoms and by the absence of other diseases. Most people can control their symptoms by taking medicines such as laxatives, antidiarrhea medicines, antispasmodics, or antidepressants; reducing stress; and changing their diet. IBS does not harm the intestines and does not lead to cancer. It is not related to Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis.
