Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a very common condition that affects how the gut moves and functions. It is characterized by abdominal symptoms such as abdominal pain, altered bowel habits, bloating and flatulence. These can occur on most or every day of the week over at least several months.
It is not known what causes IBS, but several factors may trigger symptoms. Food is one of those triggers and this is why diet therapy is a good way to treat symptoms - and the most effective diet therapy is a 3-Step FODMAP diet.
