Confused and Not Sure I Got Right Answers...

(((Connie))) While colonoscopy is sometimes used in the diagnosis of IBS, in that it's used to rule out other conditions and diagnose IBS by exclusion, a colonoscopy is really much better suited to routine screenings for colorectal cancer and in the diagnosis of conditions like diverticulosis (for me it was very helpful there).

Here is a link to a discussion about diagnosing IBS and the use of testing methods:

Diagnosing IBS: What's too much, What's Enough?

You have to be registered with Medscape to read the article, but registration is free and it gives you access to their whole library of great information. I highly recommend it!

And here is another great source of information on the diagnosis of IBS:

Diagnosing Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

I hope this helps!
