What is the treatment for irritable bowel syndrome?
I have irritable bowel syndrome, abdominal pain. During the Covid epidemic, I could not go to the doctor. So the doctor told me how to treat irritable bowel syndrome? I thank the doctor.

With the question “How to treat irritable bowel syndrome? , the doctor would like to answer as follows:
You have been diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome, to reduce abdominal pain, you should choose low-fat foods, eat enough vegetables and fruits, avoid all kinds of foods. Processed foods are highly seasoned, and alcohol is limited. Depending on your own digestive condition to choose the right food (for example, if you eat fish, fishy food or have stomachache, you can reduce this type of food).
Painkiller you can take: Debridat 2 - 3 tablets a day; or Spasmomen day 2 - 4 tablets. If there are warning signs: bloody stools, abdominal pain at night, weight loss, anemia, .... you need to go to the hospital to see a specialist in Gastroenterology for advice.
If you still have questions about irritable bowel syndrome, you can go to a hospital under Vinmec Health System for further examination and advice. Thank you for trusting and sending questions to Vinmec. Wish you a lot of health.
