Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) | Symptoms, Causes, Diagnosis & Treatment

6. Psychosocial factors

Doctors found that people who suffer from stress, depression, anxiety, mood swings or any overwhelming social emotions could be predisposed to irritable bowel syndrome, and they are more likely to suffer from its symptoms while facing social distress, as in near project deadlines and college exams. Another forgettable minor cause of irritable bowel syndrome is the quality of life because people with a low life quality are more likely to get IBS than those with reasonably better life quality. Statics also shows that 35% of people living in unhealthy environments suffer from irritable bowel syndrome in an early stage of life or young adulthood.
