Am J Gastroenterol. 2021 Jan 21;: Authors: Moosavi S, Pimentel M, Wong MS, Rezaie A Abstract Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) affects a significant percentage of the general population and is more common in women.

  9. Low FODMAP diet in patients with diarrhoea predominant irritable bowel syndrome: a prospective, randomised trial.

  14. A carbohydrate-restricted diet for patients with irritable bowel syndrome lowers serum C-peptide, insulin, and leptin without any correlation with symptom reduction. Nutr Res. 2020 Dec 04;86:23-36 Authors: Saidi K, Nilholm C, Roth B, Ohlsson B Abstract Alterations in gut endocrine cells and hormone levels have been measured in patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Am
  15. Is THIS what causes IBS? Food poisoning can trigger an 'allergy' - and antihistamines can stop pain Daily Mail Mice were infected with a stomach virus and then fed them ovalbumin, a protein found in egg white that provokes an immune response The mice had types of cell called mast cells activated, which releases histamine, a compound that leads to digestive intolerance and abdominal pain Their conditions were similar to patients with irritable bowel syndrome, an intestinal disorder Researchers believe IBS may be triggered like an 'allergy' and that treating p
  16. Scientists reveal mechanism that causes irritable bowel syndrome Mirage News KU Leuven researchers have identified the biological mechanism that explains why some people experience abdominal pain when they eat certain foods. The finding paves the way for more efficient treatment of irritable bowel syndrome and other food intolerances. The study, carried out in mice and humans, was published in Nature. Up to 20% of the world’s population suffers from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), which causes stomach pain or severe discomfort after eating. This affects their quality of life. Gluten
  17. What causes IBS pain? It may be a local immune reaction Science Magazine For the millions of people with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), the condition’s cramping, diarrhea, and constipation are frustrating and distressing. And it’s made worse when doctors sometimes dismiss the symptoms, attributing them to anxiety or even the imagination—“all in the mind or between the ears,” says Guy Boeckxstaens, a gastroenterologist at KU Leuven. It’s an argument Boeckxstaens rejects, and for years he’s sought to understand one hallmark of IBS: abdominal pain brought on by eating. This week

  23. The fecal mycobiome in patients with Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Sci Rep. 2021 Jan 08;11(1):124 Authors: Das A, O'Herlihy E, Shanahan F, O'Toole PW, Jeffery IB Abstract Alterations of the gut microbiota have been reported in various gastrointestinal disorders, but knowledge of the mycobiome is limited. We investigated the gut mycobiome of 80 patients with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) in comparison with 64 control subjects. The fungal-specific internal transcribed spacer 1 (ITS-1) amplicon was sequenced, and mycobiome zero-radius operational taxonomic units (zOTUs) were defined
