IBS-a etc. what does this mean?

I was diagnosed with IBS in July this year after a Colonoscopy and Scan showed no abnormalities.I'm so glad I found this forum because I have had very little advice from my GP and my Consultant discharged me as soon as I received the negative Colonoscopy report.

I have seen many references to ibs-a, b ,c d on this forum and I should like to know what this means. I also have Coeliac Disease which I manage with a gluten free diet.
