IBD & IBS: Similarities & Differences

Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) is the  Inflammation or destruction of the bowel wall,  leading to sores & narrowing of the intestines. It is a structural disease where physical damage causes symptoms. Doctors can see chronic inflammation or ulcers when they inspect the gut.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a disorder of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. It is a functional disease, which means that tests (such as a colonoscopy, stool or blood tests) won’t show any physical reason for symptoms. It’s possible to have both IBD and IBS.
