Is there a test for IBS?

Unfortunately, there is no reliable test to diagnose IBS. But your doctor or nurse can figure out if you have IBS by asking you some questions, and by running tests to make sure you do not have something different from IBS. Since a number of other diseases can cause symptoms similar to IBS, it is important to rule out those diseases by having different tests. Examples of diseases with symptoms similar to IBS include coeliac disease, and inflammatory bowel disease (such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease).2
