Irritable Bowel Syndrome Treatment in Jumeirah Dubai
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a chronic condition, which affects the large intestine (colon), causing cramps, abdominal pain, bloating, gas, diarrhea/constipation and mucus in the stool. Despite the fact that IBS affects a large number of people, only a small percentage seek medical help; this is because few individuals with IBS experience severe symptoms, and many can control these symptoms by managing their diet and lifestyle. However, for certain people, medication and counselling may be necessary. It is therefore important for people experiencing these symptoms to go to a doctor, especially as they may indicate a more serious condition.
What causes IBS?
While the main cause is unknown, there are certain triggers that contribute to the various symptoms. These vary from person to person, and include:
• Foods such as chocolate, spices, milk, carbonated beverages and alcohol
• Other illnesses e.g.gastroenteritis or bacterial overgrowth
How can it be treated?
As the direct causes of IBS are not entirely clear, the treatment of IBS focuses on relieving the symptoms. In most cases, this can be done through the management of stress, diet and lifestyle. Doctors often advise patients to avoid foods that may trigger symptoms, drink enough water, exercise regularly and get enough sleep. Other suggestions may include:
• eliminating gluten and lactose
• taking fiber supplements
• taking anti-diarrheal medications
• taking Anticholinergic and antispasmodic medications, e.g. hyoscyamine (Levsin) and dicyclomine (Bentyl), which can help relieve painful bowel spasms.
