The treatment of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) has three main goals:
Achieving remission (the absence of symptoms)
Maintaining remission (ease of symptoms or life impacting flare-ups)
Improving your quality of life
To accomplish these goals, treatment is aimed at controlling the ongoing IBS symptoms. There is no standard approach to managing all people with IBS. The symptoms, severity of disease, and how the disease might impact vary considerably.
