In brief: Lower in Asia

IBS is present in 10% to 20% of adults in the US.
[2] one study conducted in a health maintenance organization population showed the prevalence of iIBS symptoms in respondents to be 19.5%. [3] the prevalence is similar in Europe, although it may be lower in Asia and Africa.
