Defining Bad Bellies

For this week's post, I would like to share what I have learned over the last year about the categorisation of bowel disorders.

It is now my understanding that IBD and IBS have very different causes, and are very different types of disorders. As a summary of my research, I have created the below charts. 

Note that I have chosen a few of the more well-known disorders for simplicity. For a more complete list of autoimmune disorders, refer to this list, or refer to here for a full list of functional gastrointestinal disorders.
