MY RESPONSE:
Primary physiologic mast cell receptor/activator found, & it has a higher density in IBS sufferers. Perhaps this is clue to cause of IBS. IBS is commonly associated with Hypermobility Spectrum Disorder
Physiologists know that mast cells and nerves touch & communicate, & that stretched tissues elicit mast cell activation. Because of estrogens, women have more elastic soft tissues than men.
