Keywords Irritable bowel syndrome; Irritable bowel syndrome subtype; Quality of life; Irritable bowel syndrome-quality of life; Constipation; Diarrhea
Core Tip There is paucity of data on effect of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)-subtype on disease specific quality of life as most of the earlier studies have utilized general questionnaires like SF-36 etc. We studied the effect of IBS subtype on IBS-specific quality of life (QOL), the most validated disease specific questionnaire for IBS. We found that IBS-diarrhea (IBS-D) and IBS-mixed (IBS-M) have lower disease specific QOL than IBS-constipation patients. Our study also points out that clinicians should pay special attention to certain domains of QOL such as food avoidance, relationship problems, effect on daily activities and social reaction in patients with IBS-D and IBS-M as these domains significantly affect QOL in these patients.
