One of the most rapidly advancing areas of dietetic practice in the past decade has been the use of dietary modifications for management of gastrointestinal disorders and food intolerance. Diets such as the low FODMAP diet are now used as first-line therapy for irritable bowel syndrome and diet therapies more frequently used in other conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease. Part of the success of this field has been the ability of research findings to be applied directly into clinical practice.
This session aims to discuss the latest evidence for use of dietary therapies, including the low FODMAP diet, and addresses ways in which the evidence can be translated into practical strategies for patients with gastrointestinal conditions.
