Irritable bowel syndrome or IBS is the disorder that primarily affects the colon or the large intestine. This is the part of the digestive system that stores stool. Since this condition is referred to as syndrome, characterized by various symptoms that the causes are not known. Although it is relatively frequent, crucial evidence that will help produce effective treatments are not yet. The lack of research is often considered as the main reason why there is no enough knowledge about Irritable bowel syndrome.
In the research industry, only conditions that threaten life, often receive immediate attention. Given that irritable bowel syndrome is a chronic condition and does not represent a threat to the life of the patient, it is left to be investigated later. Add to this the fact that this condition is a functional disorder that complicates even more the lack of viable treatment. The functional disorder is usually, associated with subjective feelings and symptoms for which quantifiable measures can not be managed. Say by the pain, there is no objective element that can be studied to the pain of irritable bowel syndrome as opposed to painful ulcer that may cause injury to the tissues of the intestines seen. To be a functional disorder, there can be no physical disease manifestations since everything lies in the alteration of the functions covered by the digestive system in Yes, more specifically the colon.
With irritable bowel syndrome in children and adults, the colon muscles and nerves are very sensitive so any substance that can not be tolerated by the muscles may cause adverse effects on the same system. Another factor that contributes to the lack of knowledge of the cause of Irritable Bowel Syndrome root is the varied clinical presentations of patients. Some may have diarrhea, while others have dominated IBS with constipation. Each of which must be studied and treated separately.
