Well Irritable Bowel Syndrome is really nota disease in itself its a description of multiple symptoms that when put together are a syndromethat are often will cause symptoms in both men, women, and children. It is very commonbut thankfully life threatening in anyway. The symptoms can be varied but the most commonones would include things like bloating, distension, abdominal pain, alternating both diarrheaand constipation. These symptoms could be very concerning for patients and can reallylimit their life style but once again its really not life threatening. It's a descriptionof really the neural impulses that colon in particular is receiving and if you think ofit as almost like a fray ends of an electrical
wire there is increased amounts of impulsesthat are irritation the colon and the colon walls and the muscular track and is believedto cause spasm and often that's what creates the sensation of bloating, gas, and abdominalpain. IBS is a life long syndrome and not a life threatening syndrome and patients typicallywill have symptoms that come and go and sometimes exacerbated by types of stress or emotionalchanges.

Do I Have Celiac Disease or IBS
Do I have celiac disease or IBSé I understand the initial concern, that eatingnormal meals can cause bloating, indigestion, super poops and cramps. That does not tell me which disorder is causingit. IBS is estimated to affect around ten percentof adults, whereas gluten sensitivity is less than one percent â€“ though you could haveboth. Around five percent of IBS patients were found to actually have celiac diseaseor gluten allergy. Telling me I might have both does not helpme treat it. Or find out if I actually have
it. Celiac disease goes away when you stop eatinggluten, such as wheat, barley and rye. You're fine if you're eating corn and rice, meatand vegetables, also known as, a lot of Atkins and Paleo diet. Unless there's some other cause. Celiac disease can cause symptoms IBS doesnot, like dental defects, joint pain and osteoporosis. People with celiac disease may have a skinrash after eating gluten, a symptom IBS never has.
My symptoms are entirely digestive tract related. IBS makes you have squeezing all the time,whereas celiac disease does not affect bowel movements, but may alter your poops. Celiacdisease affects the small intestine, while IBS is in the colon. That's what the B in IBS stands for â€“ bowel.Short of a colonoscopy or EGD, I do not see how they'd tell the difference though. s can do a straightforward test forceliac disease blood tests, whereas IBS comes from ruling out a lot of other potential causesfor the symptoms but may involve biopsies.
So I need a blood test to determine the rightdiagnosis. Could the test ever come up wrongé You could have celiac disease and not noticeit or chalk it up to the beans instead of the wheat tortilla from dinner. But the bloodtest will find the celiac immune system disorder whether you have digestive symptoms. Now I need to know what to do about it. Go on a glutenfree diet, and if it solvesthe stomach pain and superpoops, you're probably dealing with celiac disease. If anyoneelse had their symptoms clear up that way or was diagnosed with celiac disease, it isway more likely to be that.
Because some allergic reactions are inherited. If they rule out celiac disease and glutensensitivity, then you've probably just gone on an expensive diet that brought your bloodsugar down unless you lived off rice, beans and veggies, at which point, it is just adiet. And if I have celiac disease and IBSé Stay on the glutenfree diet and the highfiber veggies to keep you regular, while you talk to a about what else he or shemay want you to take.
