Virtual, Event
July 12, 2023
4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

The low FODMAP diet is gaining recognition among consumers, and there are opportunities to communicate the scientific basis, specific intention, and appropriate implementation of the diet to ensure it achieves the clinical goal. In this webinar, the etiology, diagnosis (focus on Rome IV criteria), and symptomology related to irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) were covered. In addition, the specific action of lactose, excess fructose, GOS, fructans, and polyols and their contributions to GI symptoms were reviewed. Participants also benefited from a review of considerations for future research trials in humans. The webinar included a review of the specifics of the low FODMAP diet for IBS, including the practicalities of implementation from a dietitian’s perspective. The program delved into the 3 phases of the diet, helpful hints for success, grocery shopping tips, and particular nutrients that may be of concern with long-term implementation.
