What you should know about IBS and the FODMAP diet

 

When it comes to living with IBS, many sufferers experience regular pain and discomfort in the form of abdominal pain, bloating, wind, diarrhoea and/or constipation. Along with the physical symptoms, many people develop stress and anxiety in response to these chronic issues and this is often poorly managed into the nutrition recommendations.

The diagnosis of IBS should be made by your GP so as to exclude any other possible cause for your symptoms, such as Coeliac Disease or Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Crohn’s or Colitis). Management may include use of medication (your GP will discuss options with you), but it is now known that dietary modification often assists in resolution of most symptoms. Here at Sunshine Coast Dietetics, our team of experienced IBS dietitians are trained in these effective interventions.

Monash University has developed a Low FODMAP diet. This diet limits foods that contain minimally digested carbohydrates (but not all carbs, as they are an essential form of energy for the body!). The bacteria that live in the small intestine ferment these poorly digested carbohydrates – and, because of this, gas, wind and distension with associated pain is often the result.
