IBS Relief: The Low-FODMAP Diet

Unlike “fad diets,” the low-FODMAP diet is used to treat the unpleasant symptoms of IBS and is not intended as a weight loss diet.

However, it is important to note that our weight loss patients who also suffer from IBS may still benefit from following a low-FODMAP diet to manage their symptoms while working towards their weight loss goals.

What is IBS and FODMAP Diet

IBS Stands for "Irritable Bowl Syndrome". If you would like to learn more about the low FODMAP diet and how it can help manage your IBS symptoms, we have additional information available.

FODMAPs are a group of carbohydrates (sugars) that are not properly absorbed in the gut. They can be found in a variety of foods and food additives. It is important to note that not all carbohydrates are considered FODMAPs.

For individuals with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)*, it is common to associate food intake with gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms such as diarrhea, constipation, gas, bloating, and/or cramping. The low FODMAP diet is widely recognized as one of the best and most effective treatments for IBS. In fact, studies have shown that it helps approximately 75% of people with IBS better manage their symptoms.

It is worth mentioning that FODMAP stands for Fermentable Oligo-Di-Monosaccharides And Polyols. This acronym represents the different types of carbohydrates that fall under the FODMAP category. FODMAPS

Fermentable Oligo Disaccharides Monosaccharides And Polysaccharides
