Irritable Bowel Syndrome with Diarrhea

Irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea, or IBS-D, is a gastrointestinal disorder that targets the large intestine or colon. There’s no one cause for IBS-D, but flare-ups can often be attributed to stress and certain foods.

Most people with IBS-D will experience frequent stools, nausea, and, on occasion, loss of bowel control. Although these symptoms can affect day-to-day life, they can be managed. Your primary care doctor can help you get your life back on track through proper treatments and lifestyle modifications.
