Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

IBS can indeed cause weight loss.

Diet is very important when treated IBS - a FODMAP diet can really help; you can read more about that here: http://www.empowher.com/irritable-bowel-syndrome/content/low-fodmap-diet-targets-ibs-symptoms

You can also follow Kate Scarlata - she is a great authority on diets for IBS (and lifestyle changes, exercise etc) - her blog is here: http://www.katescarlata.com/

Many people can lose weight due to symptoms of IBS, especially due to diarrhea. Let your doctor know if you lose anymore and keep yourself well hydrated.
Best,
Susan
