  • Overview

    According to the International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is the most common functional gastrointestinal disorder worldwide with an estimated prevalence rate of 10-15%.  While most patients do not recognize the symptoms as IBS it is the most common disorder seen and diagnosed by gastroenterologists.  In the United States between 2.4-3.5 million physician visits take place annually for symptoms related to IBS.  While IBS appears to be more common among females approximately 35-40% of males may experience symptoms related to IBS as well.  There are different types of IBS resulting in varying symptoms and treatments.  This knowledge-based activity will educate pharmacists on the diagnosis and management of IBS, as well as the importance of counseling patients to adhere to lifestyle modifications and their treatment.
