I was wondering if IBS is hereditary?? i was looking on this forum and didnt seen any posts about it, but im new so maybe i didnt know where to  look. Neither of my parents that i know had IBS, but thinking back i think my grandmother could have. And my daughter has it to, along with myself. Just curious i guess eyes

Hi Pepper,
This topic has come up before and I think it was a consensus that IBS, and other GI ailments, are indeed hereditary.  Sucks, huh?
