Episode Info:

The Low Fodmap Diet is the most researched diet for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and is estimated to help alleviate symptoms in upwards of 40-70% of IBS patients.  Not many people know more about the low fodmap diet then our guest Kate Scarlata, MPH, RDN.

FODMAP is an acronym that defines foods that are composed of Fermentable Oligosaccharides (fructans and galacto oligosaccharides), Disaccharide (lactose), Monosaccharides (Fructose) AND Polyols (sugar alcohols). These carbohydrates are small chained carbohydrates that many people with IBS and related digestive disorders have a difficult time tolerating these carbohdrates and may develop symptoms of bloating, pain, constipation, or diarrhea, or a mixture of these symptoms.

We dive deeply into the Low Fodmap Diet and also into other advanced conditions that mimic IBS and must be considered if you are not responding to the Low Fodmap Diet. I have show notes on my blog at this link.  Now more about our guest.
