Caption: Irritable bowel syndrome. Artwork representing irritable bowel syndrome. The white/red structure is the large intestine (colon) of the digestive system. The coiled small intestine (centre) passes digested food onto the colon. Here water and water-based nutrients are taken up by the body. Irritable bowel syndrome is a common complaint of unknown cause. Symptoms include pain and irregular bowel habits, including bouts of constipation and diarrhoea. The condition is thought to be linked to anxiety and stress, which disturb involuntary muscle movement in the colon. There is no cure, although the symptoms can be treated.
