IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME – FODMAP DIETITIAN
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is an intestinal disorder that usually causes bloating, flatulence, constipation, diarrhea, cramping, and/or abdominal pain. This problem can be addressed through a specific diet called LOW FODMAP, developed in 2005 by Sue Shepherd, an Australian nutritionist and dietitian. This eating plan is specifically recommended to relieve the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome and has been proven to help more than 75% of the cases treated.
The focus on FODMAP foods is to limit “fermentable” carbohydrates—the carbohydrates fermented by the bacteria of the colon. These foods include but are not limited to apple, mango, artichoke, cabbage, asparagus, fruit juice, and milk, to name a few.
With the help of a dietitian/nutritionist, you follow three steps:
1. Temporary eliminate “fermentable” carbohydrates in foods eaten.
2. Gradually reintroduce these foods to identify the items that cause symptoms.
3. Maintain the diet with follow-up consultations to ensure it continues to work for you.
