The IBS Treatment Matrix provides an at-a-glance overview of all currently available IBS treatment options, plus evidence supporting the safety and efficacy of those options, enabling IBS patients and their physicians to consider all the possible alternatives while formulating a treatment plan.

"This year's focus for World Digestive Health Day is to bring more appreciation and understanding to IBS, this challenging condition that affects the quality of life for millions of people around the world," said Dr. Quigley, who serves both as President of the World Gastroenterology Organisation and as President of the American College of Gastroenterology. "IBS symptoms are often overlooked. And there are few remedies that improve the global symptoms of IBS, making it difficult to treat with any one approach. By providing these new online tools we are encouraging patients to recognize the signs and symptoms of IBS and to take them seriously, and to talk to their doctor about all the treatment options available to address their condition."

About IBS:

IBS is a chronic functional gastrointestinal disorder which for many sufferers is marked by abdominal discomfort, bloating, constipation and/or diarrhea and can be categorized based on these symptoms: IBS-D is accompanied by diarrhea, IBS-C is accompanied by constipation and IBS-M includes both diarrhea and constipation. Contrary to popular belief, IBS is not a psychosomatic disorder. Stress and anxiety do not cause IBS. Instead, research suggests that IBS is caused by changes in the nerves and muscles that control sensation and motility of the bowel. IBS is 1.5 times more common in women than in men and is most commonly diagnosed in people under the age of 50.
