Does IBS Put Your Colon At Risk?

Is it just a matter of time before the negative impact of daily colon stress shows up on your next colonoscopy?

The popular medical press has written much about the importance of getting a colonoscopy. Advice such as ‘Get a baseline if you have a family history’, ‘Get one done by age 50’, and ‘repeat every so often’ is common.  But what if you get a clean bill of health and are still experiencing the uncomfortable symptoms of constipation and diarrhea, or both?

IBS, Colon Health, Irritable Bowel Syndrome

People with IBS, or Irritable Bowel Syndrome, who get a colonoscopy will tell you that they are relieved to have negative test results. The good news is that means they don’t have a disease at the time of the test. The bad news is they still have to deal with an upset stomach and colon.

Negative Colonoscopy Result is Not Always Positive

IBS sufferers and others who are experiencing chronic bowel problems know the problem has not been solved with a negative colonoscopy. They still need a potty map in their mind wherever they go, they arrange their social calendar with family and friends around their bowels and they don’t make appointments too early in the day for fear they won’t be able to complete their bathroom business.

It’s bad enough IBS sufferers are often told they just have to live with it. It’s probably worse to have to worry about the negative impact that chronic IBS might have. Is it just a matter of time before the negative impact of daily colon stress shows up on your next colonoscopy? 

Bowel Logic 

If your colon cycles through frequent rounds of constipation and diarrhea, or both, it’s simple logic: It will eventually have a negative impact. Your colon and other affiliated body parts are in a state of dis-ease and are headed for a breakdown. You don’t have a diagnosable disease yet, but unresolved IBS precedes digestive diseases. 

The complications that can arise from untreated digestive problems are numerous and negative. For alternating constipation and diarrhea it can be any combination of symptoms and wreaks twice the havoc with your digestive system and your lifestyle.
