Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) & The Low FODMAP Diet

If you’re sick of your Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) ruling your life, know that you can take back control and enjoy food again.

There are a number of ways to manage your symptoms, including both dietary and non-dietary approaches.

Some examples include stress management, certain medications, avoiding gut irritants, other food intolerance or even changing

your eating behaviour, such as changing the size of your

meals or the speed in which you eat.

However, often there are certain carbohydrates 

that are found in everyday foods, called FODMAPs 

that can play a big part in triggering IBS symptoms. 

In fact, it’s so common that 3 in 4 people who follow the Low FODMAP Diet find relief!

Medical elimination diets, such as the Low FODMAP Diet, are complex to navigate and are designed to be temporary. People who seek the support of a Dietitian with expertise in this specialised area of nutrition are able to safely move through the several phases of the Low FODMAP Diet more to identify and manage their IBS triggers effectively.
