Irritable Bowel Syndrome Mixed

Irritable bowel syndrome mixed, sometimes called mixed IBS or IBS-M, shares the symptoms of IBS-C and IBS-D. The main difference is that these primary symptoms of constipation and diarrhea switch or alternate.

Like the other two types of IBS, IBS-M requires an official diagnosis from a doctor or gastroenterologist. You may be required to complete a variety of stool and lab tests. These tests, along with an official diagnosis, can help you get back to living a normal, productive life.
