Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)-type symptoms in female patients with mild systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE): frequency, related factors and quality of life.

 

IBS-type symptoms are highly prevalent among women with SLE and are associated with fibromyalgia (FM) and depression. SLE+IBS patients had worse quality of life (HRQOL) vs Non-IBS SLE, independently of FM status. Treating IBS symptoms may improve HRQOL in women with SLE. PubMed, Neurogastroenterol Motil, 2013 Sep 25. (Also see: Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, Fibromyalgia, and Depression)
