Sun IBS is a diagnosis of exclusion just so you know. All other GI diseases and/or disorders are attemped to be ruled out before an IBS dx is reached. Most Docs usually want to try to do a colonoscopy because it is a quick way to rule out quite a few other things at once.See the comparative chart on our "Symptoms" tab up there in the white menu bar and have a look at the other diseases listed for an idea of some of the things they want to rule out.Do you not know what your doc is looking for?
Well sorry don't agree.For anyone to refer to this disease as a a diagnosis of exclusionis unfortunate and a disservice to anyone who has IBS or anyof their loved ones as well.
Yes, Please list them in a separate thread please. ThanksLet me know if you want papers, reviews, studies, that refer to it being no longer a diagnosis of exclusion. I can list them here.
