What causes IBS?

The exact causes of IBS aren’t understood, but it’s thought to be related to the bacteria that live in your gut. Certain food groups can trigger symptoms in those with the condition, but these tend to differ from person to person and no two cases are exactly the same.


There’s also a link between IBS and mental health, with anxiety, depression and a variety of other mental conditions known to contribute to the severity of symptoms.
