IBS & the low FODMAP diet

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common functional gastrointestinal disorder affecting approximately 15% of people worldwide. Characterised by lower abdominal pain and discomfort, bloating, wind, distension and altered bowel habit (ranging from diarrhoea to constipation), the condition causes considerable discomfort and daily disruption for the sufferer. Researchers at Monash University have developed a diet strategy to manage IBS symptoms known as the low FODMAP diet. FODMAPs are a group of carbohydrates.

This diet is the product of extensive research which has quantified the FODMAP content of hundreds of foods, described the mechanism by which the diet works and shown that a low FODMAP diet improves symptom control in approximately three out of every four people with IBS.

Join us as we go on a journey to understand the physiological effects of FODMAPs and the dramatic effects of a low FODMAP diet in people with IBS.

If you have any questions about the diet, please email fodmap.feedback@monash.edu.
