Welcome to the gastroenterology community!  I would recommend he talk to his doctor about trying to eat many smaller meals throughout the day.  Has he had any tests done?  He could also try eliminating different foods from his diet with his doctors consent.

A stool test can't "show" IBS, but a stool test can be normal making the doctor think that it is more likely to be IBS.  Blood tests can test for allergies to foods.
