Key Words Irritable bowel syndrome; Functional gastrointestinal disorder; Acupuncture; Meta-analysis
Core Tip Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is not life-threatening, but leads to significant impairment of health-related quality of life. There is still no universally accepted satisfactory treatment for IBS. Nowadays, acupuncture is increasingly popular in patients with various diseases. Several studies showed an improvement in quality of life in IBS patients after acupuncture, but other studies showed no improvement. We performed a meta-analysis to establish the therapeutic efficacy of acupuncture for IBS.
