Study Reveals Correlation Between Endometriosis And IBS Among Adolescents And Women With And Without Endometriosis

Healio (3/21, Jaramillo) reported researchers “revealed a correlation between endometriosis and irritable bowel syndrome [IBS] among adolescents and women with and without endometriosis.” The study found that “more adolescent patients with endometriosis had comorbid IBS (54 of 224 patients) vs. those without endometriosis (7 of 99 patients).” The study also found that “patients with endometriosis had a 5.26-fold higher risk for IBS.”

The findings were published online in Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology.
