90 minute talk. The FODMAP approach to management of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) can relieve symptoms in up to 75% of patients. The high prevalence of IBS means there are applications for this approach in the practice of almost every dietitian. Patsy’s presentation will cover the scientific foundation for the FODMAP approach, identification of suitable candidates for the diet, and practice tips for communicating the diet effectively. This session will prepare you to characterize FODMAPs and how they act to trigger IBS symptoms, identify the FODMAPs prevalent in the Canadian diet, and describe an overall approach for FODMAP restriction and reintroduction.
