Young Children with IBS


Do any of you have young children who have had stomach problems and then have subsequently been diagnosed with IBS by the doc? When I say young, I mean at the ages of say 3 years or below.

Did the doc give any indication as to why a child that young had been given a diagnosis of IBS?

Any insights would be helpful - I am just interested, as I have been doing some reading about this subject recently.

Re: Young Children with IBS

As you know the Rome Criteria outlines very precisely the symptomes of IBS. I just have not read anything about children very young having the symptomes???

Re: Young Children with IBS

I know a 5 year old who was diagnosed with IBS. Later another doctor discovered the boy had parasites. A student of mine had diarrhea and his doctor gave him an antibiotic without doing any blood work. The boy got better with the antibiotic.

I was misdiagnosed with IBS and had my gall bladder removed. I am fine now. Don't give up! Find another doctor.
