Dear DB,
Irritable bowel syndrome ( IBS) a group of diseases characterized by frequent loose bowel movements . These patients suffer from debilitating abdominal pain which is often worsened by certain foods. Kidney stones and IBS are linked by dehydration. Meaning, that the frequent loose bowel movements leads to dehydration which can thus trigger a kidney stone to form.
Other diseases of the bowel can also lead to kidney stones. These include Crohn
