Low FODMAP diet for IBS, Gas and Bloating
Bowel irritability can be affected by the foods you eat. It is an important part of your treatment to instill dietary changes to improve symptoms such as abdominal bloating, excessive gas, abdominal pain, nausea, and changes in bowel habits (diarrhea/constipation).
The low FODMAP diet is based on eliminating certain types of foods that increase bowel irritability symptoms. FODMAP stands for: fermentable sugars, oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharaides, and polyols (artificial sweeteners ending in “ol” such as sorbitol).
These are names of a collection of molecules/sugars found in food. FODMAPs pull excess water into the small intestine and are poorly absorbed in the small intestine. They will act as a food source for the bacteria that lives in the GI system. The bacteria will then digest/ferment the sugars to cause the symptoms listed above.
In this guide, you will find foods to eliminate from your diet, and a list of foods to include in your diet.
