IBS is a debilitating condition that markedly affects quality of life. The chronic nature, high prevalence and associated comorbidities contribute to the considerable economic burden of IBS. The pathophysiology of IBS is not completely understood and evidence to guide management is variable. Interest in dietary intervention continues to grow rapidly. Ileostomy and MRI studies have demonstrated that some fermentable carbohydrates increase ileal luminal water content and breath hydrogen testing…

The low FODMAP diet: recent advances in understanding its mechanisms and efficacy in IBS
TLDR
This review aims to present recent advances in the understanding of the mechanisms by which the low FODMAP diet impacts on symptoms in IBS, recent evidence for its efficacy, current findings regarding the consequences of the diet on the microbiome and recommendations for areas for future research.
Low-FODMAP Diet for Irritable Bowel Syndrome: Is It Ready for Prime Time?
TLDR
The latest trials have shown that the low-FODMAP diet is associated with marked changes in gut microbiota specifically reduction in microbiota with prebiotic properties, and implications of such changes on gastrointestinal health need to be further evaluated in future trials.
The Role of Low FODMAP Diet in the Management of Irritable Bowel Syndrome
TLDR
This study provides high-quality evidence for the efficacy of a low FODMAP diet in the management of IBS and supports its use as a first-line IBS therapy.
The Low FODMAPS Diet and IBS: A Winning Strategy
TLDR
Recent evidence supports that dietary manipulation, including a diet low in fermentable carbohydrates, can be beneficial in patients with IBS and it is believed that a time investment in dietary counseling is paramount to symptom moderation and quality of life in this population.
Conference on ‘ The future of animal products in the human diet : health and environmental concerns ’ Postgraduate Winner
TLDR
Combined treatment of probiotic and prebiotic supplementation for IBS presents an exciting opportunity for optimising clinical management, whilst preventing potentially deleterious effects on the GI microbiota.
Therapy of IBS: Is a Low FODMAP Diet the Answer?
TLDR
The findings clearly support the LFD as an effective treatment in IBS, and although it highlights the role for microbiota and current psychosocial state, it remains challenging to identify what combination of treatments may be best to ensure a personalized approach and overall higher response rates to IBS therapy.
Diet low in FODMAPs reduces symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome as well as traditional dietary advice: a randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
A diet low in FODMAPs reduces IBS symptoms as well as traditional IBS dietary advice, and combining elements from these 2 strategies might further reduce symptoms of IBS.
Nutritional, microbiological and psychosocial implications of the low FODMAP diet

TLDR
While robust evidence supports the clinical effectiveness of the low FODMAP diet, it is important, considering the likelihood of its continued widespread use in IBS and other functional bowel disorders, that understanding of the impact of the diet on endpoints is extended to have potential consequences for long term health.

TLDR
There was moderate evidence to support a recommendation for fibre supplementation in chronic constipation and IBS, whereas there was poor evidence toSupport a recommendation either for or against the use of the low FODMAP diet in IBS.

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.
Pilot study on the effect of reducing dietary FODMAP intake on bowel function in patients without a colon
TLDR
Reduction of the intake of FODMAPs may be efficacious in reducing stool frequency in patients without pouchitis, depending on dietary adherence and baseline diet.
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.

TLDR
Clearly, some probiotics have considerable potential in the management of IBS; however, the benefits are likely to be strain-specific, and further robust clinical trials are required.
