Now a FODMAP expert!

Learning outcomes:

I gained an in-depth understanding and practical skills in the following areas:

- The pathophysiology of IBS, including causes, symptoms, diagnostic techniques, alarm features and the role of breath hydrogen testing - The FODMAP concept and the FODMAP composition of foods - How to implement the low FODMAP diet in clinical practice, from assessment, through to education and managing the re-challenge phase - Troubleshooting strategies and considerations when patients are not responding well to a low FODMAP diet - Adjunct therapies, including hypnotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, stress management, probiotics and pharmacological therapies - Other dietary approaches to IBS management, such as fibre modification, adding glucose to fructose, the low food chemical diet and the gluten-free diet - Other applications of the low FODMAP diet, including in paediatric patients with IBS, breastfeeding mothers of infants with colic, women with endometriosis and individuals with small intestinal bacterial overgrowth. 

If you are experiencing IBS symptoms, and have visited your GP to investigate that there are no differential diagnoses, such as Coeliac Disease, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Diverticular disease etc., then make an appointment so that we can determine if the low FODMAP diet can assist to manage your symptoms.
