We’ve all eaten something that just doesn’t sit well and resulted in symptoms. Most frequently when we are eating out and have had less control over what we are eating. Following a low FODMAP diet can help manage symptoms but what can you do when you’re in the middle of experiencing those symptoms? Symptoms vary from one person to the next including bloating, abdominal pain, distention, constipation, diarrhea, altered bowl habits, excessive gas and intestinal noises, or any combination of these. Each symptoms has its own management strategy.
We are going to bring you some tips to help alleviate symptoms over the coming weeks, including ideas to help with acute symptoms which occur quickly after you have eaten a trigger food, as well as ideas to help prevent symptoms from occurring in the future. We will start the first blog of the series with some information for those that suffer constipation as a major symptom.
