Irritable Bowel Syndrome Pronounced With Low Birth Weight

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and low birth weight seems to have a connection, suggests a new academic insight. Norwegian researchers have unearthed the link, to // indicate that babies who weigh less than 5.5lbs at birth, carry a greater chance of coming down with Irritable Bowel Syndrome , in comparison to heavier babies. The findings of this study have been documented in the Journal "Gut".

IBS is annoying, leaving its victims with discomfort - abdominal pain, diarrhea and constipation. This is probably due to an immature digestive system, linked to low birth weight that exacerbates the risk of IBS.

To comprehend the link, 3,334 pairs of identical and fraternal twins born between 1967 and 1979, were inducted as study subjects. The data of birth weight and the condition of the subjects with relation to IBS development was noted.

The study revealed that the nearly one in 20 portrayed acute symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome, with women showing a greater propensity to suffer IBS. Researchers were quick to enable risk factors, which clearly showed that babies weighing less than 5.5lbs carried an elevated risk of suffering IBS. Birth weight, lower than 3.3lbs carried a much higher risk, equated at 2.5 times higher than babies weighing below 5.5lbs.

Lead researcher Dr. May-Bente Bengston, of the University of Oslo, said "It could be because the gut system has restricted development in smaller babies. This could mean the bowel is affected, causing IBS symptoms, but we really cannot be sure."
