IBS-D, IBS-C - What do the alpha extensions mean?

Hi All -

I am new to IBS. I see people referring to their cases with letters proceeding IBS - like IBS-D and IBS-C2 - What do these letters refer to?

Thanks!

IBS-D is IBS with Diahreah
IBS_C is IBS with Constipation

Supposedley, my Gastro says that I have IBS and I am on NuKLev for it. The only problem is I deal with both Diahrea and Constipation. I am going for a Colonoscopy in 2 weeks.

Thanks for the info. djl!

I should have figured that one out on my own, huh?!?

Good luck with colonoscopy. I had mine back in June. It wasn't half as bad as I had expected. Getting through the prep is the toughest part. Try not to get nervous like I did...I realized I expended all that energy for nothing when it was finished.

Take care,
ncgirl
