However, IBS is majorly diagnosed by lactose intolerance tests, breath test for bacterial overgrowth, blood test, and stool test. The tests are done based on symptoms such as constipation-predominant, diarrhea-predominant, or mixed. It can also detect by various imaging tests such as CT Scan or X-ray, upper endoscopy, and colonoscopy.Irritable bowel syndrome is a chronic gastrointestinal condition that is caused due to disturbances in bowel habits and abdominal pain. The disease is also known as spastic colon, irritable colon, mucous colitis, and spastic colitis. Irritable bowel syndrome shows symptoms such as abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhea, and cramping.People across the world are witnessing considerable incidence of irritable bowel syndrome.
