Those Suffering with Irritable Bowel Syndrome with Diarrhea
Irritable bowel syndrome is a chronic condition that effects more than 200,000 US cases per year.
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common disorder that affects the large intestine. Its symptoms include abdominal (belly) pain, bloating, and gas. IBS-D is a type of IBS in which the symptoms also include frequent diarrhea.
If you have IBS-D, you know how it can make a major impact on your lifestyle. IBS-D can cause you to miss your favorite activities, turn your mealtimes into minefields, and fill your work and personal life with constant bathroom interruptions.
IBS-D Symptoms May Include:
- Abdominal pain
- Urgent or frequent bowel movements on a weekly basis
There is currently no cure for IBS and the exact causes are still unknown but may be your nervous system, infections, bacteria, inflammation or muscle contractions in your intestine. Some may be able to control their symptoms with diet and lifestyle changes, but others need to seek medication and counseling.
While prescription and over-the-counter medicines help some people with IBS-D, others don’t find relief with current medications.
What is involved?
This study is looking at a daily medication taken before breakfast to help symptoms of IBS-D. We are asking patients to come into our office for a total of 8 visits within 4 months.
