If You Have Abdominal Pain At Least Once A Week, Beware!

Although IBS, also known as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, is quite common in the society, unfortunately, patients can lose time for treatment because it is not recognized enough. Gastroenterology Specialist Assoc. Prof. Dr. Emine Köroğlu said that IBS is a functional disease that seriously affects a person's quality of life, causes loss of work force and can even cause psychological problems if not treated.

Although IBS, which is more common in the society, especially in the young population between the ages of 18-30, is not associated with more serious intestinal problems such as inflammatory bowel disease or bowel cancer, it is an important problem that seriously affects the quality of life of the person due to the stress and psychological problems it creates. Yeditepe University Kozyatağı Hospital Gastroenterology Specialist Assoc. Prof. Dr. Emine Köroğlu, also reminded that if the disease is not treated, it can cause serious workforce losses due to both physiological problems and psychological effects.
