2. Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

IBS is a gastrointestinal disorder that causes a range of symptoms including diarrhea. There are three main types of IBS: IBS-D (IBS predominant diarrhea), IBS-C (IBS predominant constipation) and IBS mixed (diarrhea alternates with constipation). Doctors and patients treat IBS-predominant diarrhea and IBS mixed with a combination of medication and dietary changes. There are no tests to confirm IBS, and it can take time to diagnose. If a person can take note of the different digestive issues affecting them, this can help a doctor make a quicker diagnosis and begin treatment sooner.
