Nutrition and the FODMAP diet

You will undoubtedly have heard or read about it: the FODMAP diet. It is a diet for people with irritable bowels. Complaints with irritable bowels can be cramps, stings or bloating. When someone with intestinal complaints goes to the hospital for an examination, the person may be told that they are irritable intestines. The FODMAP diet can help.

With the diet it is advisable to avoid various products for 6 weeks. After these 6 weeks, certain products are tried out step by step to see what is being responded to. In this way we can find out which products can cause or aggravate the complaints.

Studies show that 75% of people with an irritable bowel reduce the symptoms by following the diet.
