Understanding Bowels

Our knowledge of the bowels has increased enormously over recent years and doctors can now diagnose, and cure or relieve, nearly all disorders of the bowel.

Disorders of the bowel are extremely common. At any given time one in five people is experiencing discomfort from their bowels, which can largely be prevented by eating more suitable food.

The food we eat and the way we live our lives have enormous effects on our bowels. This book tries to explain these matters, helping you to keep the workings of your bowel comfortable and advising what to do if things go wrong.

Understanding Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is one of the most common gastrointestinal disorders, but it is puzzling for those who have it and for the doctors who treat it.

IBS is a syndrome, a collection of symptoms with similar features that occur together in a pattern that your doctor can recognise. In typical cases, there is rarely any doubt about the diagnosis, although you may have symptoms in any part of your gastrointestinal tract, which stretches from the oesophagus (gullet) to the rectum.

The term irritable is used to describe the reaction of the muscles in the intestine, which respond to stress by abnormal contractions. These may result in various combinations of the three main symptoms: pain, diarrhoea and constipation.

In the UK around eight million people have IBS. Symptoms of IBS are equally common in men and women, but women consult their doctors about these symptoms more often than men.
