About the webinar:

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) impacts up to 15% of people in the US. While the low-FODMAP diet has been shown to have good efficacy for symptom management in IBS, it is not appropriate for all IBS patients or patients with IBS-like symptoms in conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease or coeliac disease. In this webinar, Kate Scarlata reviews the proposed mechanisms between FODMAP intake and gastrointestinal symptoms in IBS, provides guidance on identifying the best candidates for the low-FODMAP diet and details the three distinct phases of the low-FODMAP protocol.
