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)
- Food intolerance
