Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a functional bowel disorder which incorporates a group of symptoms but includes abdominal pain and disturbed defecation. IBS is divided into several subtypes including:

  • Diarrhoea predominant (IBS-D)
  • Constipation predominant (IBS-C)

These subtypes are identified by the dominant symptoms that the patient experiences.
