Help IBS Patients Sort Through Fiber Options
Patients often ask what works for treating symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)...such as bloating, diarrhea, constipation, etc.
Lifestyle modifications start with minimizing stress...and avoiding foods that worsen symptoms.
The new thinking is that food triggers include many hard-to-digest carbs called "FODMAPs"...fermentable oligo-, di-, and mono-saccharides and polyols. These are found in some fruits, vegetables, milk, and grains.
