High expectations for low FODMAP diets

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common disorder of the digestive system, affecting about 10% of the global population. The condition has no definitive biomarker or cure, but various drug treatments have been introduced in recent years, including antibiotics (to treat presumed small intestinal bacterial overgrowth) and agents that affect motility through fluid secretion or the enteric nervous system. Despite these advances, perhaps the most popular option among patients in recent years has been a dietary approach, the “low FODMAP diet.”
