Graduate Thesis on FODMAP Diet

A Low FODMAP Diet Tool Kit for Registered Dietitians to use in the Dietary Treatment of Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

The purpose of this project is to develop a resource for use by registered dietitians in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Irritable bowel syndrome occurs in roughly 15 % of the United States (U.S.) population and results in increased absence from work, reduced productivity, and increased health costs. Psychological, emotional and/or dietary factors are thought to be drivers of IBS. A growing body of evidence is demonstrating the effectiveness of a low Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharide, And Polyols (FODMAP’s) diet in treating IBS. These fermentable, short-chain carbohydrates that can contribute to the chronic symptoms due to the way in which FODMAP’s can be malabsorbed. In controlled trials, the implementation of a low FODMAP diet resulted in an average 76% improvement in symptoms. Registered Dietitians will benefit from this knowledge and be able to use this tool kit to help their IBS patients adopt a low FODMAP diet.  Read MORE!  Thesis
