FODMAPs have come a long way. As recently as 5 or so years ago, no one was really familiar with them including most nutritional professionals but times have changed. More and  more, people are using a low FODMAP diet, along with the guidance of a nutrition professional, to help manage their digestive health woes.

 

The Low FODMAP Diet limits certain types of carbohydrate (sugars) in the diet that can aggravate a troubled gastrointestinal tract (gut) because these carbohydrates are fermented by gut bacteria leading to classic symptoms of IBS. A low FODMAP diet is used to reduce the symptoms associated with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Studies show that 75% of people see improvements, after 2 weeks, when the diet is closely followed.  By doing so, a stressed/inflamed gut will be less irritated while the underlying cause of IBS are addressed/investigated so that healing can begin.

 

The diet can also gaining ground as an initial step in helping to manage similar symptoms arising from other digestive disorders such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD): ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease.

    Hey Doug – What’s your take on gluten sensitivity & FODMAPS sensitivity? Is there cross-reactivity? If one should avoid FOMAPS, should they also avoid gluten?

      I’m still convinced that gluten is a problem to some degree independent of the FODMAP consideration; e.g. not just explained away by the fructans. I think gluten can be an issue on its own and not one of cross-reactivity. If there’s still not relief, gluten sensitivity should be considered
