The low FODMAP diet for irritable bowel syndrome: From evidence to practice
March 29, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am CDT
The Monash University research team discovered a group of short-chain carbohydrates that are either poorly absorbed in the small intestine or are completely indigestible. These carbohydrates are called FODMAPs: fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides, and polyols. Their poor absorption in some people triggers IBS symptoms.
Tune into this webinar to learn how FODMAPS contribute to Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and how to help your patients/clients with this complicated diet.
At the end of this session, participants will be able to:
Understand the mechanisms of action and evidence for the use of the low FODMAP diet in patients with irritable bowel syndrome
Understand the concepts of the 3 phases of implementing the low FODMAP diet
Understand ways in which the diet could be modified to suit the needs of the individual
