A diet low in poorly absorbed, fermentable, short chain carbohydrates (FODMAPs) is an effective strategy to manage symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The diet has gained traction since its original description in Australia 10 years ago and is now an internationally accepted dietary management strategy for IBS. Randomized controlled trials have raised the profile of the low‐FODMAP diet to become a viable first‐line therapy for IBS, when implemented under a dietitian's guidance… Expand
All that a physician should know about FODMAPs
TLDR
All the relevant information about FodMAPs is compiled with an objective to provide comprehensive information on FODMAPs to a physician to explore the efficacy of low FOD MAP diet in patients with IBS. Expand
The role of diet in irritable bowel syndrome: implications for dietary advice
TLDR
All of these dietary therapies are viable options for individuals with IBS, with the dietitian and patient engagement at the forefront of achieving success, however, future pragmatic studies are needed to clarify the comparative efficacy and convenience of implementing these various diets into routine life.

TLDR
Applying the low FODMAP diet in IBS can greatly improve health and quality of life outcomes by alleviating or significantly improves symptoms. Expand
Low FODMAP diet significantly improves IBS symptoms: an Irish retrospective cohort study
TLDR
The low FODMAP diet significantly improved all IBS symptoms at 3, 6, and 12-month follow-up, and the best symptoms’ improvement was seen in those who were fully adherent to the FodMAP diet. Expand
Low FODMAP Diet: Evidence, Doubts, and Hopes
TLDR
The aim of the present review was to clarify the effective and appropriate indications and limitations of an LFD and to discuss its possible future uses, particularly in gastrointestinal diseases other than functional disorders and, possibly, also in non-gastrointestinal diseases. Expand
Low-FODMAP diet in the management of irritable bowel syndrome
TLDR
The low-FODMAP diet restrains the intake of certain food, and it leads to significant improvement in the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome patients, however, some nutritional deficiencies may occur, if there is inadequate nutritional guidance, highlighting the need for adequate dietary management.

FODMAPs, subtances that can be found naturally in a wide variety of foods such as dairy products and certain plant origin foods, have been associated with symptoms of certain intestinal diseases.Expand

Low fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides, and polyols diet in children
TLDR
The aim of this review is to analyze the current data on both low FODMAP diet in children with IBS and the effects on their nutritional status and physiological development, given the fact that it is a restrictive diet. Expand
How Patients with IBS Use Low FODMAP Dietary Information Provided by General Practitioners and Gastroenterologists: A Qualitative Study
TLDR
The findings in this study support current clinical guidelines proposed by both the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence and the British Dietetic Association that the LFD should be considered a dietitian-led only intervention. Expand

A diet low in FODMAPs reduces symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.
TLDR
In a controlled, cross-over study of patients with IBS, a diet low in FODMAPs effectively reduced functional gastrointestinal symptoms and high-quality evidence supports its use as a first-line therapy. Expand
Comparison of symptom response following advice for a diet low in fermentable carbohydrates (FODMAPs) versus standard dietary advice in patients with irritable bowel syndrome.
TLDR
A low FODMAP diet appears to be more effective than standard dietary advice for symptom control in IBS. Expand
Diets that differ in their FODMAP content alter the colonic luminal microenvironment
TLDR
A low FODMAP diet reduces symptoms of IBS, but reduction of potential prebiotic and fermentative effects might adversely affect the colonic microenvironment, and diets differing in FodMAP content have marked effects on gut microbiota composition. Expand

TLDR
It is shown that dietitian-led FodMAP group education is clinically effective and the costs associated with a FODMAP group pathway are worthy of further consideration for routine clinical care. Expand
Fructose malabsorption and symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome: guidelines for effective dietary management.
TLDR
This comprehensive fructose malabsorption dietary therapy achieves a high level of sustained adherence and good symptomatic response and was significantly better in those adherent than nonadherent. Expand
No effects of gluten in patients with self-reported non-celiac gluten sensitivity after dietary reduction of fermentable, poorly absorbed, short-chain carbohydrates.
TLDR
In a placebo-controlled, cross-over rechallenge study, there is no evidence of specific or dose-dependent effects of gluten in patients with NCGS placed diets low in FODMAPs. Expand
Fermentable carbohydrate restriction reduces luminal bifidobacteria and gastrointestinal symptoms in patients with irritable bowel syndrome.
TLDR
This randomized controlled trial demonstrated a reduction in concentration and proportion of luminal bifidobacteria after 4 wk of fermentable carbohydrate restriction, effective in managing IBS symptoms. Expand
The low FODMAP diet improves gastrointestinal symptoms in patients with irritable bowel syndrome: a prospective study
TLDR
The aim was to determine whether a low FODMAP diet improves symptoms in IBS patients. Expand
Differential Effects of FODMAPs (Fermentable Oligo-, Di-, Mono-Saccharides and Polyols) on Small and Large Intestinal Contents in Healthy Subjects Shown by MRI
TLDR
Fructose but not inulin distends the small bowel with water more than fructose, but causes few symptoms in healthy volunteers, and adding glucose to fructose reduces the effect of fructose on SBWC and breath hydrogen. Expand

TLDR
Increased and discordant absorption of mannitol and sorbitol occurs in patients with IBS compared to that in healthy controls, suggesting that the dietary restriction of polyols may be efficacious. Expand
