What is IBS & FODMAP? FODMAPs stands for Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides, And Polyols.
FODMAPs can cause digestive symptoms in some people because they are poorly absorbed in the small intestine and reach the large intestine where they can be fermented by gut bacteria. This process can produce gas and lead to bloating, abdominal pain, and diarrhea or constipation. Additionally, because FODMAPs can draw water into the large intestine, they can also cause increased fluid in the gut, leading to diarrhea in some individuals.
FODMAPs include types of sugars, such as fructose, lactose, and fructans, as well as certain types of fiber. An elimination diet is a dietary intervention that involves temporarily removing certain foods from the diet to determine if they are causing digestive symptoms. A FODMAP elimination diet involves removing high FODMAP foods to see if this reduces symptoms, and then gradually reintroducing them to determine which specific FODMAPs are triggers for the individual.
It is important to see a registered dietitian to guide you through a FODMAP elimination diet as they can help you design a safe and effective elimination diet, ensure you are still getting all of the nutrients your body needs, and help you determine which FODMAPs are causing your symptoms. They can also provide you with guidance on how to make dietary changes that are sustainable in the long-term.
