Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is one of the most common gastrointestinal conditions. This chronic, often debilitating condition is characterised by symptoms of abdominal pain or discomfort, bloating and altered bowel habit for at least six months.
The treatment of IBS recommends diet and lifestyle modification as part of first-line treatment. Where first-line advice fails we would then recommended evidence-based and effective exclusion diets such as a diet low in short-chain fermentable carbohydrates (low FODMAP diet). A low FODMAP diet has been shown to help 3 out 4 people with their irritable bowel symptoms.
Munchwize Dietitians offers a specialised program that incorporates the low FODMAP diet. This diet has been proven to be effective in reducing irritable bowel symptoms. Through this programme we explain the diet, give advice on how to exclude FODMAPfoods and then how to reintroduce them We offer support throughout the 16-week process as well as meal ideas, patient info booklets, recipes and research-based resources. We will help empower you to self-manage your condition in the long term.
