Irritable Bowel Syndrome in Cincinnati, Ohio

About Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a gastrointestinal disorder that impacts 25 million Americans, mostly women in their 20’s to 40’s. Thankfully IBS does not increase your risk of colon cancer, however, the abdominal discomfort associated with IBS is a long-lasting problem that changes how you live your life. People with IBS may miss work or school, often missing out on daily activities due to fear of symptoms.

At Amy Brenner MD & Associates, we can create a wellness program tailored to you.

Our Approach to Treatment.

Because it is not clear what causes IBS in every person, traditional medical treatment focuses on the relief of symptoms. Medications specifically for chronic constipation or diarrhea may be prescribed. While this may provide temporary relief from an acute flare-up, it does not address the root cause of the syndrome.


Symptoms of Irritable Bowel syndrome:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Constipation and diarrhea fluctuation
  • Increased gas
  • Bloating (distention)
  • Cramping
  • Food intolerance
