Curiously, if other similar insymptomatology of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract (ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, oncology) written and said enough about the IBS virtually nothing. Only in the medical literature for physicians.
Moreover, before - 20 years ago - and diagnosisthis was not. All described a condition called "chronic spastic colitis." But by examining the colon, doctors found that no colitis - an inflammation of the intestinal mucosa - no. Long thought where, then, are the scourge, and came to the conclusion that all the fault of the nerves. Rather, the violation of the nervous regulation of motor function of the intestine. That is a violation and called IBS.
Generally very irritable bowel syndromemany faces. That is, the patient pours on the doctor so many complaints that would be enough for a couple of other diseases. By the way, such an abundance of symptoms - is one way to recognize, or at least suspected IBS. A straight complained of pain in the stomach and intestinal disorders; headache and a lump in the throat when swallowing; on frequent urination, on his nerves, etc. But doctors have been able to share in the IBS are three options:
- with diarrhea,
- with pain and flatulence.
"Do not think that the diagnosis" syndromeIrritable bowel "simply put, - says the doctor-gastroenterologist Yuri Korobchenko. - To avoid accidentally miss a more serious disease, patients underwent detailed clinical blood tests, examined the internal organs, and so on. "
And although the syndrome is not a threat tothe patient's life, but the quality of life itself reduces greatly. Moreover, often the symptoms of such people even embarrassed to tell the doctor. It is easier in a drugstore something "from the belly" to ask, but as a result there is no cure and the daily stress at work, in transport is added, and the stress of the unpredictability of his own intestines.
This nice IBS treatable. Moreover, it includes both the intake of drugs and psychotherapeutic methods. In addition to medication to normalize regime and the nature of power. If patients with IBS revealed a depressive syndrome after counseling therapist appointed by antidepressants and other drugs. Determine which set of drugs need an individual patient, a doctor is able, on the basis of what kind of IBS is predominant in a particular case.
If IBS occurs with severe painsensations that are usually appointed antispasmodics. If a person is plagued by constipation, the first thing you need to normalize his diet, introduce diet more dietary fiber - fiber - and at the same time appoint drugs that increase intestinal motility. If the predominant diarrhea syndrome, the fiber in the diet is necessary, on the contrary, to limit and start taking adsorbing means. But the main thing - do not throw treatment halfway and continue to occur on a regular basis by a doctor.
I will not play the hypocrite and say that you canto achieve the complete and final victory of IBS. Unfortunately, in most cases this can not be done. But to achieve stable long-term remissions doctors quite capable. And it's not in the imperfection of techniques or drugs. Just aggravation of IBS can be caused by completely independent of the reasons doctors. I mean stress and emotional stress, over which the physician has no control.
