Indian cricketer Ishan Kishan's absence from the West Indies tour has sparked debates among his close circles.

Despite being a consistent performer, Kishan's role in the Indian XI has varied, impacting his mindset.

Lifestyle and Health

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), a chronic condition affecting the stomach and intestines, manifests through symptoms like cramping, bloating, and abdominal pain. Its exact cause is challenging to determine, often rooted in lifestyle factors, food intolerances, gut bacteria changes, and digestive system nerve abnormalities. If experiencing unexplained bloating and stomach pain, seeking evaluation for IBS is crucial. IBS, a neuro-gastrointestinal disorder, disrupts gut-brain communication, leading to abdominal pain, cramps, and bowel movement changes. Treatment involves lifestyle adjustments, mental health improvement, and dietary changes. The prevalence of IBS in India ranges from 4-7%. Symptoms vary, with IBS types categorized based on stool consistency. Diagnosis involves history, examination, and, if needed, tests excluding other gastrointestinal disorders. Treatments include dietary modifications, stress management, medications, probiotics, and alternative therapies, with lifestyle changes recommended for effective IBS management. Dig Deeper
