IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) is a chronic relapsing disorder of gastrointestinal function. The main features are abdominal pain associated with an altered bowel habit, in the absence of any structural pathology.
The second edition (2003, reprinted 2006) alerts health professionals to recent information published on irritable bowel syndrome.
It is intended to be used as a guide only and not as an authorative statement of every conceivable step or circumstance which may or could relate to the management of IBS.
Specific recommendations are based on relevant published information and will be updated periodically as new information becomes available. This information is due to be revised in 2012.
This clinical update was produced by the The Digestive Health Foundation (DHF), and sponsored by the Gastroenterological Society of Australia.
