Relation of Irritable Bowel Syndrome with Some Biochemical Parameters and Emotional Intelligence

  • Lamia Mashhedy* Babylon University

Abstract

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common gastrointestinal condition
characterized by abdominal pain and cramps; changes in bowel movements. There is no
cure for IBS; however, dietary changes, stress management, and sometimes medications
are often able to eliminate or substantially reduce its symptoms. Although the exact
causes of IBS are unknown, research suggests that people with IBS may have a colon
that is more sensitive and reactive to certain foods and stress. Stress feeling mentally or
emotionally tense, troubled, angry or overwhelmed stimulates colon spasms in people
with IBS. Therefore we discuses the relation between IBS and the end product of lipid
peroxidation (malondialdehyde) due to oxidative stress and determination of superoxide
dismutase and catalase activity as antioxidants
