What causes IBS?

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), a common disorder affecting the gastrointestinal tract, manifests symptoms like cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, and can involve either diarrhoea or constipation or a combination of both. As a chronic condition, IBS requires ongoing management. Identifying food triggers and adopting healthy habits, such as increasing dietary fibre and ensuring adequate water intake, play a crucial role in effective IBS management. It is often accompanied by anxiety, depression, and tension headaches.

Identifying Signs of Diarrhoea & IBS

Bowel Anxiety

Feeling the need to pass stools regularly but experiencing difficulty or inability to do so

Discomfort After Meals

Experiencing discomfort or pain in the abdomen after meals, finding relief only after passing motion, and noticing the presence of mucus in the stool

Contant Uneasiness

Experiencing feelings of nausea and indigestion, accompanied by heartburn and vomiting, particularly after meals and in between them

Abdominal Distention

Sensation of fullness or abdominal bloating occurring intermittently, regardless of having a proper meal

Bowel Discomfort

Experiencing consistent abdominal pain, a cycle of constipation and diarrhea, and unpredictable bowel movements

Root Causes & Aggravators of IBS

While the precise cause of IBS remains unknown, it is often triggered by various contributing factors. Key factors are:

  • Gut Microbiome Imbalance

    Shifts in small intestine bacteria, fungi, or viruses play a crucial role in IBS development.

  • Food Triggers

    True food allergies rarely induce IBS, but many individuals report heightened symptoms when consuming specific foods or drinks. Common triggers include wheat, dairy products, citrus fruits, beans, cabbage, milk, and carbonated beverages.

  • Excessive Stress

    Increased stress often exacerbates IBS symptoms in most individuals. While stress may intensify symptoms, it is not a root cause of IBS.

  • Weak Digestive Contractions

    The contraction of intestinal muscles plays a crucial role in influencing the speed and texture of stool during digestion. Weak contractions may lead to a slow passage and hard stools, while stronger and prolonged contractions can result in gas, bloating, and diarrhoea.

  • Nerve Signalling

    Disruptions in brain-intestine signals may cause exaggerated reactions, leading to digestive discomforts such as pain, diarrhoea, or constipation.

  • Underlying Health Conditions

    IBS can emerge after severe diarrhoea (gastroenteritis) triggered by a bacterial or viral infection.
