Irritable Bowel Syndrome in Adults: Diagnosis and Management of Irritable Bowel Syndrome in Primary Care [Internet]

NICE Clinical Guidelines - National Collaborating Centre for Nursing and Supportive Care (UK)

Version: February 2008

Summary of recommendations

Confirming a diagnosis of IBS is a crucial part of this guideline. The primary aim should be to establish the person’s symptom profile, with abdominal pain or discomfort being a key symptom. It is also necessary to establish the quantity and quality of the pain or discomfort, identify its site (which can be anywhere in the abdomen) and whether this varies. This distinguishes IBS from cancer-related pain, which typically has a fixed site.
