As part of an educational campaign to identify paediatric diseases, Paediatric Consultant Dr. Khaled Dabash, a professor in microbiology at the royal university in London, gave a lecture entitled “Probiotics and its importance to human health”, it was announced August 19th. Dr Dabash noted that irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is spreading quickly in the Arab region due to changing lifestyle – especially amongst women because of the vulnerability of these groups to stress at work and home. However, he also commented that probiotics can improve the performance of the digestive system and eliminate symptoms of IBS in the adults.

With this in mind, Yourwellness Magazine explored the warning signs of irritable bowel syndrome. According to Yourwellness Magazine, “The gut disorder irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common but chronic condition for which there is no cure. The cause of IBS is not yet known either and the condition can strike at any age with women more likely to develop IBS than men. Typical symptoms include abdominal pain, bloating and bouts of diarrhoea and constipation but most sufferers will find their symptoms come and go, with occasions when they are more severe.” (http://www.yourwellness.com/2013/04/recognising-the-symptoms-of-irritable-bowel-syndrome/#sthash.YrFDYYl9.dpuf)

Yourwellness Magazine outlined the different symptoms of IBS, depending on the severity of the condition:

1. Less severe IBS. Symptoms will tend to centre on gas and bloating with only occasional diarrhoea or constipation. This may require occasional doctor visits when the IBS flares up, but will most likely be controllable using over-the-counter medication from the pharmacist.

2. More severe IBS. This will include more regular flare-ups with a longer recovery time in between bouts. Sufferers may need time off work because leaving the house isn’t possible, and will require stronger pain relief from the doctor.

3. Extreme cases of IBS. The sufferer may have to be admitted to hospital to deal with the dehydration and excessive gut pain that comes from the symptoms.
