Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) can be debilitating especially if symptoms occur when you’re out and about. If you have IBS it may be worth asking your dietitian about the FODMAPs diet.
FODMAPs are found in normal everyday food and while these foods are often healthy foods, they contain FODMAP molecules that are poorly digested by those with IBS. In those with IBS, consumption of these foods can lead to unpleasant symptoms e.g. bloating, flatulence, abdominal pain, nausea and changes in bowel habits.
If you have IBS and suffer from these symptoms ongoing, it’s well worth investigating if a low FODMAP diet will work for you. We can help you make dietary changes to reduce the amount of FODMAPS in your diet and thus reducing your symptoms. Contact us to make an appointment.
