  • That thick, it is empty

    This functional disorder, in other words, at
    examination of modern diagnostic methods can not
    identify any sores, no visible inflammation. It would seem that there is no reason to
    poor health. And the symptoms - is.

    Someone will say: no
    ulcers - ought to be happy, to be sure, abdominal discomfort! say it
    a girl who can not meet Irritable Bowel Syndromeyoung people, because it
    tormented constant bloating. Or the young man who knows
    All public toilets on the way to work. Or the one who wakes up
    in the morning and feels pain in the abdomen, which for the time calms down only after
    hike on the toilet. ...



    IBS: Is it all over?

    Doctors
    refer to the SRK with seriousness. It is not surprising, since
    Symptoms characteristic of IBS occur in 10-20% of the adult population,
    being most working - more than 80% of patients - aged 30
    up to 60 years. Women suffer in 2 times more often than men. Since 1988 held
    three international conferences devoted to the diagnosis and treatment
    IBS.

    Do not dissemble: despite all the efforts, the reason
    Irritable Bowel Syndrome is still unknown to scientists. It is believed that
    IBS occurs when increased sensitivity of the sensory apparatus
    intestine, which leads to spastic response in response to normal
    incentive to reduce. The second mechanism is a decrease in the threshold
    pain perception.

    Predisposed to IBS are, on the one
    hand, those who experience constant stress, psychological trauma.
    On the other hand, can provoke food borne disease
    poisoning and intestinal infections.



    At one hundred syndrome symptoms

    AND
    Still worth a stop on IBS symptoms. The main ones are
    recurrent pain or discomfort in the abdomen, which is due to start
    change frequency or stool form, and improvement comes after
    defecation.

    Additional symptoms include violation of frequency
    chair: constipation (stool less often 3 times a week) or diarrhea (stool often 3
    once a day), abnormal stool form: lumpy, solid, liquid,
    (Watery), as well as a feeling of incomplete evacuation, mucus,
    bloating.

    To be able to start talking about a syndrome
    irritable bowel is necessary that the above symptoms
    were observed for at least six months.

    Besides,
    There are so-called "alarm symptoms" (fever, blood in
    the stool, weight loss, anemia), which make the diagnosis of IBS
    unlikely. Finally, IBS - day guest for the night symptoms
    It is not characteristic.

    Since there are no diseases
    Specific features for the diagnosis of a clear need
    description of the symptoms and the type of pain. "It is recommended to make a diagnosis as early as
    the first day of treatment the patient ", - stated in the criteria developed
    international commission in Rome. In practice this has meant that
    diagnosis of "irritable bowel syndrome" is extremely common.
    Soon the central institution of gastroenterology conducted a study, and
    it was found that diagnosis of IBS was confirmed in only 24% of patients, while
    76% of patients with other bowel disease or illness were established with
    intestinal symptoms. This led to the emergence in our country
    diagnostic standards necessary to exclude other
    pathology. Only if there is no diagnosed
    IBS.



    Three Principles of IBS treatment

    1.
    "Again, this is" - longingly tells my friend, who is the third
    times per day nazvanivaet his patient suffering from IBS. And I understand it.
    Among doctors "irritable bowel syndrome" is sometimes jokingly referred to as
    "Syndrome irritated head," because besides the basic symptoms
    often there are those that are associated with disruption of the central
    and the autonomic nervous system. Lump in the throat when swallowing, pain
    muscles, headaches, heart palpitations, feeling of incomplete
    breath, increased anxiety patients. Here one gastroenterology
    not do: we'll have to organize a way of life, to do the analysis and
    establishment of normal relations between home and work, and sometimes -
    use antidepressants.

    2. It is necessary to respect the
    food, preferably - to include fiber in your diet.
    It happens that certain foods trigger increased symptoms, and
    then the doctor asks the patient to conduct a "food diary".

    3.
    the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome drugs are used
    drugs, of which the main ones are antispasmodics (Duspatalin,
    ditsetel) and regulators of intestinal motility (motilium, debridat,
    loperamide).
