IBS & the low FODMAP diet

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common functional gastrointestinal disorder affecting approximately 15% of people worldwide. Characterised by lower abdominal pain and discomfort, bloating, wind, distension and altered bowel habit (ranging from diarrhoea to constipation), the condition causes considerable discomfort and daily disruption for the sufferer. Researchers at Monash University have developed a diet strategy to manage IBS symptoms known as the low FODMAP diet. FODMAPs are a group of carbohydrates.

This diet is the product of extensive research which has quantified the FODMAP content of hundreds of foods, described the mechanism by which the diet works and shown that a low FODMAP diet improves symptom control in approximately three out of every four people with IBS.

Join us as we go on a journey to understand the physiological effects of FODMAPs and the dramatic effects of a low FODMAP diet in people with IBS.

If you have any questions about the diet, please email fodmap.feedback@monash.edu.

  1. I was looking for an video to explain the Low FODMAP diet to a client. This is excellent! Thanks Monash. I do wish you would explore SIBO as well tho. I was on the LOW FODMAP diet for years to quell my symptoms, but it wasn't until I addressed SIBO that I really felt better.

  2. What a tremendously well-made, clear video! I recommend it to anyone with IBS or just curiosity. The title "Grand Tour Down Under" is perfect too.

  3. This is an amazing video I'll be showing my patients who consults for IBS symptoms … which are quite a few!

  4. Hi I've had ibs for a long time now I've basically tried everything I also had a igg test for celiac disease which was normal and also took antibiotic rifaxamin which didn't help at all and every food that I eat gives me discomfort (ibs symtoms) what I want to know is that is this app helpful because my doctor said he can't do anything and I'm out of options.

  5. Definitely purchase the Monash app. Hugely helpful as a quick reference to high fodmap foods. For LoFo recipes, check our @LoFoFoodie on You Tube of Facebook. Videos of meals and snacks that support a LoFo diet.
