Learn About IBS From Capital Digestive Care’s Dr. Howard

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common disorder that affects the large intestine. Symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome include a pattern of altered bowel habits over a while (such as diarrhea or constipation), abdominal bloating, abdominal pain, abdominal cramping, and gas. IBS is more likely to affect women than men, but men can also suffer.

IBS symptoms can often be controlled through diet and lifestyle changes.

If you see a pattern or regular occurrence of these symptoms, you should seek medical attention. Capital Digestive Care has specialized doctors and assists many patients with IBS.
