Effective Treatments for IBS & IBD
IBS and IBD are not the same condition. IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) affects mostly women, but the causes are unknown. Most common symptoms include abdominal cramping, diarrhea and chronic constipation. There is no cure for IBS, and treatments focus mainly on diet modifications, lifestyle changes and medication to eliminate your discomfort and control the condition.
IBD (inflammatory bowel disease) is a more serious version of IBS and can cause similar symptoms such as abdominal cramps plus more serious symptoms such as bloody diarrhea, weight loss and fever. Treatments for IBD include lifestyle and dietary modifications along with prescription medicines.
