*Why IBD and IBS - they are totally different!
Yes – you are 100% correct! IBD, or Inflamatory Bowel Disease includes Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease. IBS, or Irritible Bowel Syndrome, is a usually less serious problem called a functional disorder. In general they are separate entities with no intrinsic relationship.

Many humans, including our host Joel Sprechman, can have both, and both wreak havoc on the gut. When treating root-cause of a Disease, or Sydrome, often the symtoms and treatment for IBD and IBS overlap. Of course, not always. Since there is overlap and the same Doctor who treats one will often also treat the other this summit contains meaningful tips for both IBS and IBD, as well as other auto-immune disorders due to overlaping root-causes.

Here’s more from a physician:

Evidence has accumulated suggesting “shared pathophysiologic mechanisms” between IBS and IBD, including altered mucosal permeability, interaction between luminal flora and the mucosal immune system, persistent mucosal immune activation, alterations in gut motility, and the role of sustained life stressors in symptom modulation.[Bradesi S, McRoberts JA, Anton PA, Mayer EA. Inflammatory bowel disease and irritable bowel syndrome: separate or unified? Curr Opin Gastroenterol. 2003;19(4):336-342.]It is no longer useful to think of IBS as a purely functional motility disorder, when it has become clear that inflammation-induced neuroplasticity contributes to disrupted motility in quiescent IBD and in functional gastrointestinal disorders[Casén C, Vebø HC, Sekelja M, et al. Deviations in human gut microbiota: a novel diagnostic test for determining dysbiosis in patients with IBS or IBD. Aliment Pharmacol Ther. 2015;42(1):71-83.]IBD patients often have a history of IBS and some studies suggest many IBD cases start out as IBS. At the other end of the continuum, IBD cases in complete remission often present with IBS symptoms.
