Hello -

New research shows common causes of IBS, triggers of IBS symptoms, and risk factors for developing IBS.

In a nutshell? The possible causes include early-life stress or psychological trauma, changes in the gut microbiome, nervous system issues, alterations in gut motility and permeability, severe gastrointestinal infection, and long-term or repeated antibiotic use.

Other potential causes include small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), increased gut sensitivity, food sensitivities or intolerances, and certain mental health issues.

Common triggers for IBS symptoms include certain foods and stress. Risk factors for developing IBS include being younger than 50 years old, being female, having a family history of IBS, and having certain mental health conditions.

Certain lifestyle factors may also increase your risk of IBS, such as smoking, excessive alcohol intake, chronic stress, lack of physical activity, and irregular eating habits.
