Colleen writing over at FODMAP Everyday,

Up to 40% of people with IBD suffer from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). These people have a poorer quality of life compared to those with only IBD.

And

“Some people with inactive IBD avoid high-fiber foods out of necessity, others out of fear. Either way, many continue to feel unwell on a low-fiber diet. In lots of cases, these ongoing IBS-symptoms are because of FODMAPs.”

I see lots of IBD patients with overlapping IBS. IBS symptoms rarely respond to medications, but dietary and lifestyle changes can help. The founders of FODMAP Everyday reached out to me to learn about the key similarities and differences between IBS and IBD and to find out how a low FODMAP diet might help people with both conditions. I was happy to help! Check out my article “What if I have IBS and IBD” to learn more.
