Abstract

EVIDENCE-BASED ANSWER

A diet low in fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides, and polyols (FODMAPs) appears to reduce gastrointestinal symptom scores in patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), at least in the short term (SOR: B, meta-analysis and systematic review of variable quality RCTs and observational studies).
