THE FIX

Healthy Food Guide (Australia) - - FEATURES -

Most peo­ple can help ease their symp­toms with changes to diet, along with other treat­ment op­tions, such as med­i­ca­tion, psy­cho­log­i­cal ther­a­pies and life­style changes to re­duce stress. A re­cent study es­tab­lished that a low-FODMAP diet was ef­fec­tive in re­duc­ing symp­toms in about 75 per cent of IBS-suf­fer­ers. Treat­ment for IBS should be in­di­vid­u­alised. For some peo­ple food can play a role, whereas life­style fac­tors can have a greater im­pact for oth­ers. You can find more in­for­ma­tion at www.med.monash.edu/cecs/gas­tro/fodmap. And, al­ways con­sult with an Ac­cred­ited Prac­tis­ing Di­eti­tian be­fore mak­ing sig­nif­i­cant diet changes.
