“Irritable bowel syndrome” (also known as “colon irritable bowel syndrome,” or generally known as “sensitive gut”) is a general term for the symptoms of intestinal disorders, or symptoms caused by oversensitivity of the intestine, patients are subject to the following conditions:

1. Abdominal pain, bloating or abdominal discomfort usually subsides after defecation.

2. When there is abdominal pain, bloating or abdominal discomfort, bowel opening frequency will increase or decrease, or stool will become hard or loose.

Most people may occasionally have the above symptoms, but if the symptoms occur frequently (up to three times a month or more) or the symptoms affect their daily lives, and the underlying reasons cannot be found by colonoscopy, then you may be suffering from “Irritable Bowel Syndrome”.
