One in five Americans has irritable bowel syndrome, making it one of the most common disorders diagnosed by doctors.
 
It occurs more often in women than in men. IBS usually begins around age 20.
 
Irritable bowel syndrome causes a great deal of discomfort and distress, but it does not permanently harm the intestines and does not lead to intestinal bleeding or to any serious diseases, such as cancer.
