Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is the most common functional gastrointestinal disorder worldwide.
It is one of the disorders. Individuals with IBS have a lower quality of life compared to healthy people.

Various pharmacological therapies are available to improve IBS symptoms; However, many patients prefer not to use medication and alternative approaches are coming to the fore. The majority of patients associate IBS symptoms with the foods they consume. Diet is the most important factor affecting patients' lives. However, some foods may trigger or provide relief from symptoms.


Healthy diet and lifestyle advice should only be given by a healthcare professional with expertise in dietary management in IBS. While general recommendations include regular meals and adequate water consumption, alcohol, caffeine, soda and spicy foods should be limited, as they are potential dietary triggers for this disease. Additionally, individuals with low physical activity should be encouraged to increase their physical activity. Good eating habits and regular meal consumption are important in IBS, which can support health status. Patients with IBS are advised to take time for meals, not to skip meals, to eat sitting down, to chew food thoroughly, and not to consume meals late at night.

According to the latest published clinical guidance, a short-term trial of the low-FODMAP diet is recommended to prevent general symptoms of IBS. In approximately 70% of IBS patients, bloating and pain are triggered by FODMAP foods.

Because FODMAPs are not fully absorbed in the small intestine, they retain water and ferment through microbial fermentation in the colon, leading to the production of gas and short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) accompanied by luminal distension and abnormal motility .

The Low FODMAP Diet is the proven diet plan for managing IBS.

Patients across all subtypes of IBS patients reported being more satisfied with their stool consistency when following the low-FODMAP diet.

Removal of FODMAPs from the diet of IBS patients resulted in significant improvement in gastrointestinal symptoms in 68-86% of individuals.
