Screening for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

The purpose of screening is early diagnosis and treatment. Screening tests are usually administered to people without current symptoms, but who may be at high risk for certain diseases or conditions.
There are currently no screening tests or screening guidelines specific to IBS.
