BACKGROUND The cause of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is unknown. It may follow gastroenteritis and be associated with an abnormal gut flora and with food intolerance. Our study was designed to assess whether these factors were associated with colonic malfermentation. METHODS We carried out a crossover controlled trial of a standard diet and an exclusion diet matched for macronutrients in six female IBS patients and six female controls. During the final 72 h on each diet, faecal excretion of… Expand

Do Interventions Which Reduce Colonic Bacterial Fermentation Improve Symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome?
TLDR
IBS may be associated with rapid excretion of gaseous products of fermentation, whose reduction may improve symptoms, and this work aimed to assess the relationship between IBS symptoms and fermentation rates in IBS. Expand
Evaluation of hydrogen excretion after lactulose administration as a screening test for causes of irritable bowel syndrome
TLDR
Total hydrogen production over 24 h is increased in some patients with irritable bowel syndrome who may respond to exclusion diets, however, this sub-group of patients cannot be identified by measuring breath-hydrogen excretion after lactulose. Expand
Treating irritable bowel syndrome with a food elimination diet followed by food challenge and probiotics
TLDR
These data demonstrate that identifying and appropriately addressing food sensitivity in IBS patients not previously responding to standard therapy results in a sustained clinical response and impacts on overall well being and quality of life in this challenging entity. Expand
Treating Irritable Bowel Syndrome with a Food Elimination Diet Followed by Food Challenge and Probiotics
TLDR
These data demonstrate that identifying and appropriately addressing food sensitivity in IBS patients not previously responding to standard therapy results in a sustained clinical response and impacts on overall well being and quality of life in this challenging entity. Expand
Effect of Lactobacillus plantarum 299v on Colonic Fermentation and Symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome
TLDR
In conclusion, Lactobacillus plantarum 299V in this study did not appear to alter colonic fermentation or improve symptoms in patients with the irritable bowel syndrome. Expand
Impaired transit and tolerance of intestinal gas in the irritable bowel syndrome
TLDR
A large proportion of patients with IBS can be shown to have impaired transit and tolerance of intestinal gas loads, which may represent a possible mechanism of IBS symptoms, specifically pain and bloating. Expand
Alteration of intestinal microflora is associated with reduction in abdominal bloating and pain in patients with irritable bowel syndrome
TLDR
The results of the study indicate that the administration of Lb. Expand

TLDR
In conclusion, short-term therapy with Lactobacillus PlantarumLP0 1 and Bifidocterium Breve BR0 may be considered a promising approach to the therapy for IBS. Expand
Altered Colonic Bacterial Fermentation as a Potential Pathophysiological Factor in Irritable Bowel Syndrome
TLDR
Colonic intraluminal pH is decreased, suggesting higher colonic fermentation, in IBS patients compared with HC, and total SCFA level in all IBS subjects was similar with that of HC. Expand
Lipid-induced colonic hypersensitivity in the irritable bowel syndrome: the role of bowel habit, sex, and psychologic factors.
TLDR
IBS patients show increased colonic sensitivity and altered viscerosomatic referral pattern after duodenal lipids, which is largely unaffected by the predominant bowel habit, psychologic factors, or sex, but seems to be related to IBS per se. Expand

Management of patients with food intolerance in irritable bowel syndrome: the development and use of an exclusion diet
TLDR
A less restrictive exclusion diet was developed, avoiding all those foods to which 20% or more of the patients had been intolerant, and equally good results can be obtained using a nutritionally adequate exclusion diet and avoiding the difficulties of following a more rigorous elimination regime. Expand
Food intolerance and the irritable bowel syndrome.
TLDR
There was a wide range of food intolerance and the majority (50%) identified two to five foods which upset them, and the foods most commonly incriminated were dairy products and grains. Expand
Impaired hydrogen metabolism in pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis.
TLDR
Patients with PCI excrete more H2 than controls; the activity of these bacteria is virtually absent in PCI, which may explain the gas accumulation in patients. Expand
Irritable bowel syndrome
TLDR
Women seem to be affected more frequently than men, except on the Indian subcontinent where the reverse is true; the reason for this difference is unclear, but it might be explained by a combination of reduced availability of medical care and different cultural approaches to illness. Expand
Fructose: Incomplete intestinal absorption in humans
TLDR
Fructose, 50 g as a 10% solution, was incompletely absorbed in 6 of 16 subjects (37.5%) and was associated with symptoms of cramps or diarrhea, or both in 5 of these 6 individuals. Expand
Psychometric scores and persistence of irritable bowel after infectious diarrhoea
TLDR
Patients who subsequently developed IBS symptoms had higher scores for anxiety, depression, somatisation, and neurotic trait than those who returned to normal bowel function and the hypothesis that psychological factors are important in IBS was supported. Expand
The role of intestinal gas in functional abdominal pain.
TLDR
Complaints of bloating, pain and gas may result from disordered intestinal motility in combination with an abnormal pain response to gut distention rather than from increased volumes of gas. Expand
The fecal microbial population in the irritable bowel syndrome.
TLDR
The focal microbial flora composition in patients affected by irritable bowel syndrome showed a decrease of coliforms, lactobacilli and, to a lesser extent, bifidobacteria, as compared to control healthy individuals. Expand
Effect of resistant starch on fecal bulk and fermentation-dependent events in humans.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that RS has a significant impact on putative markers of colonic health in humans and the presence of starch in the colon may affect the fermentation of NSP. Expand

TLDR
It is shown that in two-thirds of cases presenting in East Anglia the symptoms can be controlled by the detection of specific food intolerances, both in the short and the long term. Expand
