IBS? Could be the FODMAPs

Rice now forms a large part of her diet, along with wild rice, and especially potatoes (her dietitian told her, "potatoes in all forms are your friends"). She can have hard cheeses and zucchini and green beans and strawberries. And she found a chicken broth, but just one, that is not made with ingredients that make her feel bad. "It's a matter of reading all the stupid labels all the time. There is so much crud in our food. It made me very, very aware that there are so many things that they put in our food," she said. So far, the ingredients that have been hardest to give up have been onions and garlic. Seasoning food can be a challenge for her now, but she has learned she can eat the green parts of green onions and cilantro and, for some reason, garlic-infused olive oil. "Herbs are something I can experiment with. This has opened up a whole way of looking at food for me," she said, noting that she always used to strictly follow published recipes but now she has to make her own. She has also discovered the joys of Tabasco sauce ("I never in my life thought I would be eating Tabasco sauce") and mayonnaise ("I was always a Miracle Whip girl"). top article http://www.toledoblade.com/Dan-Neman/2013/03/19/FODMAP-diet-gives-woman-direction.html

Or perhaps your symptoms come out of the blue; painful stomach aches, cramps, or worse the big "D" that you can't ever associate with any one particular food. Your doctor has poked you, scoped you, scanned you, taken your blood, and determined that everything looks normal. It must be irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), he declares, and you'll just have to live with it. If this sounds familiar, there's reason to be optimistic. It's possible that FODMAPs could hold the key to unlocking a hidden food intolerance . FODMAP is an acronym that describes a group of poorly-digested carbohydrates which, for a variety of reasons, may trigger symptoms of abdominal pain, bloating, and diarrhea in susceptible people. When carbs go undigested in the small intestine, they continue their journey southward into the colon, where the resident bacteria are pleased as pie to digest them on your behalf. As the bacteria feasta process called fermentationthey produce gas as a byproduct. Additionally, large amounts of intact, undigested sugars hanging around in the colon tend to attract water (remember osmosis from eighth grade biology class?); this is what causes diarrhea. The term FODMAP was coined by scientists at Monash University in Australia, whose pioneering research resulted in an experimental elimination diet that's now being used by clinicians worldwide to help pinpoint specific food-intolerance triggers for which there are no empirical diagnostic tests. The low-FODMAP diet has thus far shown very promising results in helping alleviate digestive symptoms among people with IBS. Emerging data suggest that upwards of 70 percent of people with IBS may experience symptom relief on a low-FODMAP diet, though larger studies are needed to validate these numbers. click now http://health.usnews.com/health-news/blogs/eat-run/2012/08/28/ibs-could-be-the-fodmaps
