IBS is a common condition
IBS, i.e. Irritable Bowel Syndrome, is a functional bowel disorder, the reason of which still remains unknown. As many as up to 10-15% of all Finns suffer from IBS, and the disorder is twice as common in women than in men. IBS can be a both painful and awkward disorder, with symptoms clearly affecting both quality of life and everyday life.
What causes IBS?
The actual root cause of IBS is not known, and therefore it is classified as a so-called functional bowel disorder. In addition to IBS, there are also other functional disorders affecting the gastrointestinal tract. Despite “functional” being the commonly used term when talking about IBS, the recommendation today is to talk about bowel disorders causing disturbances in the gut-brain axis. The reason for this is the increasing amount of new information gained in recent years on the fact that IBS involves several disturbances of the communication pathways between the gut and the brain.
