Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Irritable Bowel Syndrome can be difficult to definitively diagnose. However, if you have ongoing abdominal pain or bloating, frequent diarrhoea or constipation - and no other cause can be found - then your GP may diagnose IBS.

There are different types of IBS, depending on the symptoms that are most prominent. These are:

  • Diarrhoea-predominant
  • Constipation-predominant
  • Mixed

Whichever type you have will have an influence on the types of treatments you should use.

You may also find certain foods trigger IBS symptoms.

Triggers for IBS

If you are experiencing IBS symptoms, you may want to start a food diary.

This’ll allow you to track if any particular foods trigger IBS. Removing these foods from your diet should see your symptoms improve.

Common triggers include:

  • Caffeine
  • Beans
  • Pulses, such as lentil
  • High iron vegetables, such as broccoli
  • Bread

You can also usually improve your symptoms by:

  • Drinking plenty of fluids
  • Eating a high-fibre diet
  • Taking regular exercise
  • Getting enough sleep

Of course, there are times when you’ll also need medication to help ease your IBS symptoms.

IBS treatments from Rightdose

Depending on the type of IBS you have, there are many treatments available to ease your symptoms.

If you have diarrhoea-predominant IBS, most diarrhoea tablets and sachets should help. The sachets help to replace lost fluids and salts, as well as helping to ease the cramps and bloating that often comes with diarrhoea.

Constipation-predominant IBS symptoms can be soothed with stool softeners and laxatives.

We understand the pain of IBS at Rightdose, which is why we supply a wide range of treatments to ease your symptoms.
