IBS Medications, Medical Foods and Fecal Microbiota Transplantation (FMT)

IBS Medications focus on the primary symptom which causes a patient to seek help from a doctor, ie: diarrhea (IBS-D), constipation (IBS-C) and/or abdominal pain. Medical foods are foods which are formulated to be consumed or administered under the supervision of a physician. Fecal Microbiota Transplantation (FMT) is a new treatment that has been shown to be over 90% effective for treating C. difficile infection in patients who had previously failed to recover with antibiotic therapy. There has been some limited positive results with FMT and IBS.
