Irritable Bowel System and Bowel Diseases

Irritable bowel syndrome is actually a condition abdominal aches and pains following eating food. Irritable bowel systems are different.
Ingesting what you eat too very quickly without chewing in the proper fashion may also result in discomfort.
You may have a virus. Bacteria play a huge role in digestion and problems of the digestive tract.

IBS is a group of symptoms that are not specifically attributed to a physical problem. The symptoms can cause serious digestive problems.

IBD is symptoms that can be traced to an actual physical ailment that can be diagnosed by testing.

If you are suffering it may not matter what is the cause.  The main difference from my perspective is that some ibd is genetic, meaning some are more prone to getting Crohns and Ulcerative colitis. 

Distinguishing between the two can be difficult and even harder because you may have both going on at once.

Symptoms of the two can be very similar.

 

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

A group of problems that are causing you problems that can not be attributed to malfunction of the digestive system is called Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

Inflammatory Bowel Diseases

Inflammatory Bowel Diseases occur when the intestine's walls become inflamed for more than a short period of time. This swelling can lead to the forming of ulcers which are lesions or sores in the lining of the intestines.

This can be caused by an unbalance of the microorganisms in the intestine. it also can be the result of emotional or dietary habits and routines that cause physiological changes.

Any of these can be very uncomfortable and inconvenient. There is also Ulcerative Colitis which only involves the anus and colon ( large intestine ). The sores or lesions only affect the inner linings. It is localized but can spread to a larger area which will cause serious problems.

IBD and IBS

IBD is different from IBS which is Inflammatory Bowel Syndrome. IBS is a combination of symptoms that produce similar type symptoms. IBS is confusing because it is difficult to identify the exact problem.

Some of the common symptoms of both are diarrhea, cramps, pain in the lower abdominal area, and blood in the stools, which is noticed on the toilet paper or by dark coloration of the stools.

Luckily IBS is not as serious as IBD which is an actual disease that can be diagnosed. IBS is treatable by many more holistic methods which have been proven successful. It is however a major problem in life.

IBD Symptoms

Inflammatory Bowel Disease can cause wide ranging problems from vision, to mouth sores, and even things like arthritis. The bowel movements and eating are disturbed and any part of your body can show effects. Skin problems are often not associated with digestive problems but can be a major indicator of bad diets or diseases.

Although exact causes of the diseases are not well documented, researchers have concluded that it is a reaction to your bodies immune system. There are also links between certain genes and Ulcerative Colitis and Crohns. this is why routine checkups are so important.

Clarification is needed when talking about the body' s immune system because typically we think of different kinds of white blood cells, lymphocytes, phagocytes, antibodies, neutrophils and immunizations. We will discuss these technical terms later in another part of the website.

What is important to understand is that the very high acid stomach environment is the first line of defense in the immune system. That acid can be very dangerous to our bodies if something goes wrong. Things like too much acid produced, too little, the pancreas not producing alkaloid bicarbonate to neutralize the acid, and any break down in the system, which is complex and magnificent.

If the breakdown causes disease symptoms it is IBD.

If the breakdowns cause complex symptoms it is IBS.

IBD and IBS can occur at the same time and often do.

It is IBD when there is identifiable swelling, ulcers, and other damage that can be scientifically identified.

Both of these can last very long time. People have gotten almost immediate results from some treatments for Inflammatory Bowel Syndrome.

It is confusing because different techniques to treat IBS will be needed to really address the problems.

Drugs can make IBS and IBD Worse

Many over the counter drugs can make IBS worse and lat longer. They do bring almost immediate relief and are helpful as part of the treatments and cures.

Men and women both are susceptible to Inflammatory Bowel Diseases from teen years to old age. Be aware that anyone with these diseases in the family history are ten times more likely to get them. Jews and Caucasians have higher incidences of these problems statistically.
