Dr. Maria Tahir*, Dr. Aneeqa Saad and Dr. Amra Batool

ABSTRACT

Objective: To compare the post-infectious irritable bowel syndrome (PI-IBS) and none post-infectious irritable bowel syndrome (NPI-IBS) clinically and experimentally. Methods: From May 2015 to January 2017, eighty-nine patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) were recruited in Nishtar Hospital Multan. The clinical data were collected for all the patients, and a blood sample was collected to detect the level of C-reactive protein (CRP) and intestinal fatty acid binding protein (IFABP), an investigation questionnaire of gastrointestinal symptom rating scale (GSRS) and self-rating anxiety scale (SAS) were carried out to evaluate the gastrointestinal function and anxiety status. Results: In the study, forty-eight patients were included in PI-IBS group and 41 in Non-PI-IBS group. There was no significant difference in age, gender and GSRS between the two groups (p>0.05). In PI-IBS group 70.8% patients presented with the primary symptom of diarrhea and 60.4% presented with a SAS scores over 50, but in Non-PI-IBS group, the values were only 19% (p<0.05) and 34.1% (p<0.05). The level of IFABP and CRP were significantly higher in PI-IBS group than those in Non-PI-IBS group (p<0.05). Conclusion: The PI-IBS may be different from Non-PI-IBS in mechanism and should be treated using different strategies.

Keywords: CRP, GSRS, SAS.
