What Is IBS?
Irritable Bowel syndrome can be a debilitating condition and is reported to affect up to 15% of the UK population. The cause of IBS is not fully understood, but the symptoms can affect peoples quality of life.
Typical symptoms are abdominal pain, bloating, wind, diarrhoea, constipation, reflux, heartburn, abdominal gurgling and generalised tiredness. If this is you I can help!!
I am a specialist in Irritable Bowel Syndrome and I am giving IBS suffers symptoms relief.
How am I doing this?
A new way of reducing IBS symptoms is using the Low FODMAP diet. Recent research has shown that some fermentable carbohydrates (FOMAP’s) may contribute towards IBS symptoms.
These fermentable sugars are poorly absorbed in the small intestine, these molecules then arrive in the large intestine, where they act as a food source to the bacteria that live there normally. The bacteria ferment with the sugars which produce excess gas which can cause the IBS symptoms of pain, bloating and wind etc.
The studies have shown that following the Low FODMAP diet can improve IBS suffers symptoms by 75%!!
