Dietary fibre supplements have been advocated for the management of chronic constipation (CC) and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Recently, a fermentable oligosaccharide, disaccharide, monosaccharide and polyol (FODMAP) restricted diet has been recommended for IBS. 
Randomised clinical trial: low‐FODMAP rye bread vs. regular rye bread to relieve the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome
Grains are high in FODMAPs (Fermentable Oligo‐, Di‐, Monosaccharides And Polyols) and often considered as triggers of IBS symptoms.
Randomised clinical trial: yoga vs a low‐FODMAP diet in patients with irritable bowel syndrome
TLDR
It is assumed that lifestyle interventions might be a rational treatment approach for irritable bowel syndrome.
Fiber and Low FODMAP Diets in Irritable Bowel Syndrome
TLDR
This poster explains why certain types of constipation are more common in people over the age of 45 than in people under 45 years of age.

TLDR
A healthy diet plays an integral role in maintaining the gut microbiota equilibrium andIrritable bowel syndrome is a functional gastrointestinal disorder leading to chronic debilitating issues.
Systematic review with meta‐analysis: effect of fibre supplementation on chronic idiopathic constipation in adults
Chronic idiopathic constipation is a common symptom‐based gastrointestinal disorder responsible for a substantial economic health service burden. Current guidelines recommend the use of fibre as a
Randomised clinical trial: gut microbiome biomarkers are associated with clinical response to a low FODMAP diet in children with the irritable bowel syndrome
TLDR
A FODMAP diet can ameliorate symptoms in adult irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) within 48 h.
Predictors of response to a low‐FODMAP diet in patients with functional gastrointestinal disorders and lactose or fructose intolerance
Diets low in fermentable sugars (low‐FODMAP diets) are increasingly adopted by patients with functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGID), but outcome predictors are unclear.

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.
Randomised clinical trial: mixed soluble/insoluble fibre vs. psyllium for chronic constipation
Fibre supplements are useful, but whether a plum‐derived mixed fibre that contains both soluble and insoluble fibre improves constipation is unknown.

TLDR
The aim was to determine whether a low FODMAP diet improves symptoms in IBS patients.
Manipulation of dietary short chain carbohydrates alters the pattern of gas production and genesis of symptoms in irritable bowel syndrome
TLDR
Reduction of short‐chain poorly absorbed carbohydrates (FODMAPs) in the diet reduces symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, and symptoms produced in response to diets that differed only in FODMAP content are compared.
Mechanisms of Constipation in Older Persons and Effects of Fiber Compared with Placebo
TLDR
The mechanisms of constipation and the effect of fiber supplementation on physiology, mechanisms, stool parameters, and colonic transit times in a group of constipated older patients are investigated.
Effects of psyllium therapy on stool characteristics, colon transit and anorectal function in chronic idiopathic constipation
TLDR
This work has shown that Psyllium, a substance widely used in the symptomatic therapy of constipation, has a positive effect on colonic function and their correlation with symptomatic response has not been defined.
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.
