    Took a glance at the abstract. Still not clear what they mean by IBS-like, given that there are a few different types of IBS and each person has a few different aspects to their symptoms too.

    (I can see why you might use it as an abbreviation but have they defined the specific symptoms they mean at all? Do they mean diarrhoea? Or constipation? Or gas pain? Or other types of pain? Or nausea? Weight loss? Or various hard to pin down things like fatigue, irritability, ..? Are they including that syndrome where bowel movement is supposed to relieve the pain? Or do they just mean unexplained gastro problems?)
