Irritable bowel syndrome or IBS, is a disorder that leads to bowel changes, abdominal pain, cramps and other symptoms. Between 9% and 23% of the world’s population suffers from IBS. The cause of IBS is unknown, but an unhealthy diet, drastic lifestyle changes, smoking, stress, anxiety and a lack of exercise have shown to worsen the symptoms.
The main symptoms of IBS is:
- Abdominal pain and cramping

IBS is a very tricky disorder as the symptoms, triggers, duration and medication vary between patients. It all comes down to elimination. In some patients, foods like dairy, alcohol, sweets, caffeine, fizzy drinks, fatty foods, fried foods and processed snacks like chips or biscuits may trigger their symptoms. If you think you might be suffering from IBS, start by eliminating certain foods and see how your bowel reacts. You will quickly narrow down what your triggers may be and be able to get back to a normal life.
Following the correct diet is very important for people suffering from IBS. Make sure to eat enough fruit and vegetables. Stay away from food that do not digest easily, eat slowly and chew your food properly. If you gulp everything down when eating, your stomach has to do more work when digesting your food.
