Colleen writing over at FODMAP Everyday,
Existing research supports using a low FODMAP diet to help people with IBD in remission. Over 1/3rd of patients with IBD report gut symptoms in the absence of gut inflammation.
Despite no inflammation and a low-roughage diet, lots of my IBD patients continue to report gas, bloating, abdominal pain and diarrhea. In these cases, I’ll recommend a short-term, low-roughage, low FODMAP trial.
One of the most popular questions IBD patients ask me is “Can a low FODMAP diet help my IBD?” The founders of FODMAP Everyday reached out to me to find out if, why and how I use the low FODMAP diet to help my IBD patients. To find out, check out my article “How Can a Low FODMAP Diet Help My IBD?“
