IBS is a condition of the digestive system, which can cause stomach cramps, diarrhoea and constipation.
It could be caused by an oversensitivity to some digestive nerve signals, or by digestion being too quick, or taking too long.
But, eating more carrots could reduce some of the symptoms of IBS, according to the NHS.
The vegetable is rich in soluble fibre, and could reduce diarrhoea and constipation.
Carrots are sources of soluble fibre, meaning the fibre dissolves in water.
Soluble fibre stays in the gut longer, which helps the colon work normally.
Eating the vegetables raw was the best way to get all of the nutrients.
Increasing your fibre intake is helpful for a number of intestinal ailments, but immediate results were unlikely. It could take up to a month for symptoms to be eased.
Eating regularly and not missing meals could also help to reduce IBS symptoms.
Only drink three cups of coffee or tea a day, and cut out alcohol and fizzy drinks, the NHS recommended.
Processed or re-cooked foods can contain resistant starch – starch that makes it all the way to the large intestine without being digested – which could make symptoms worse.
Oats could also help to reduce wind and bloating, it added.
About one in five people will develop IBS at some point in their lifetime.
It usually first develops between the ages of 20 and 30, and women were twice as likely to develop the condition than men.
While the condition may improve over a number of years, it’s usually a lifelong condition, the NHS said.
See your GP if you’re worried you may have IBS symptoms, it recommended.
Meanwhile, IBS patients could take a probiotic supplement to help reduce symptoms.
Probiotics helped to reduce abdominal pain in 69 per cent of IBS patients, according to a study by Bio-Kult.
Also, 86 per cent of patients who claimed to have moderate to severe symptoms, saw their diarrhoea and constipation reduce after taking the supplements.
There’s currently about eight million people living with IBS in the UK.
