Research Shows: Stress and indigestion can be linked to DNA

Wednesday, November 17, 2021

Researchers say that with the help of human genes, the answer to the question of a more common but not well-understood disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) may be found. Why is it often associated with anxiety?

According to a new study on human genes, IBS may be linked to our DNA, not just stress or anxiety.

It is generally thought that if we become restless or in other words restless then our digestion gets worse and we get constipated or we have to go to the toilet again and again. This condition is called IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome).

Experts hope that after this new research we will stop thinking that this condition is just a mental illness and say that it is all an invention of your mind.

According to a study published in the scientific journal Nature Genetics, researchers studied more than 50,000 people with IBS and compared their genetic material (DNA) with the DNA of healthy people.

According to data from the UK, one in ten people suffer from an intestinal disorder that causes abdominal pain and sometimes constipation, sometimes shaking hands or sometimes both of you together. They become victims.

Since no definitive test for IBS has yet been discovered, its diagnosis is possible only when the possibility of other possible gastrointestinal and intestinal diseases is ruled out.

Women are generally more affected than men and most people seek medical advice between the ages of 20 and 40.

Professor Miles Mark, head of the research team and gastroenterologist, says that our understanding of IBS, including that of doctors, is still poor and that because indigestion is usually accompanied by stress and anxiety, we can treat it. Psychosomatic 'disease' is a condition that is based on our state of mind.

According to Professor Mark, this may not be the case. He said that when he compared the genes of IBS patients with the genetic cells of healthy people, he found at least six differences that could somehow explain the relationship between our brain and stomach. However, research does not show that you get IBS in case of stress or anxiety or if you have IBS, you get depression.

Our research has shown that both conditions (restlessness and gastrointestinal upset) are rooted in the same type of genes and that a defect in one of the genes may cause changes in your brain or cerebral nerves. Which further affects your stomach.

Scientists believe that with the help of this research, we can succeed in creating tests that will improve the diagnosis and treatment of IBS.

Lara Tab, 34, from Cambridge, has been suffering from symptoms of IBS as well as anxiety and depression.

"I've been suffering from anxiety from time to time for ten years, so I know what it's like to live with these conditions, but as far as IBS is concerned, they sent me back in January this year," she says. It happened when I fell victim to code.

"It's hard for some people to understand, but living with IBS is very difficult."

"Every time I ate, I would have constant pain, my stomach would swell. My condition was so bad that I could not wear my pants or jeans. I wore tight pajamas or leggings all day. '

"I was tired and bored all the time and couldn't do anything that I usually enjoyed doing, like going out to dinner with friends."

Lara says that she went to many doctors but they "made me walk" and they listened to Lara and gave her constipation medicine.

Now Lara is receiving treatment from Professor Parks and she has learned better ways to control IBS.

"It's gotten much better now and if it (IBS) still breaks out, I'll be able to get rid of it."

A few tips for IBS

If you also have IBS you may need medication but according to the UK National Institutes of Health, some tips may be helpful.

In case of abdominal pain or gas:

  • Try barley porridge
  • Foods made from fresh ingredients are better than factory-made foods, fats, and spicy dishes, but eating too much fruit and pulses can also cause gas and upset stomach.
  • Cabbage, cabbage, and onions can also go wrong at some point because some people can't digest these things easily.
  • You can also try IBS for a month using probiotic or lactose-free milk, yogurt. It may be useful for you
  • Eat on time and try not to go on an empty stomach
  • Avoid alcoholic beverages, caffeine, and carbonated beverages, and drink plenty of water so that you do not have difficulty defecating.
  • Eat sparingly instead of spicy food

In case of constipation:

  • Drink plenty of water
  • Eat fibrous foods

In case of an upset stomach:

  • If you are eating more vegetables, think about reducing such a diet
  • Without sugar, do not chew sorbitol chewing gum at all as it may make the stomach worse.
  • In case of stomach upset, drink water and beverages to make up for the loss of water that is excreted from the body so that you do not suffer from dehydration.
