  • Overview

    FODMAPs are short chain carbohydrates (oligosaccharides), disaccharides, monosaccharides and related alcohols that are poorly absorbed in the small intestine. For patients with irritable bowel syndrome, Celiac disease, or inflammatory bowel disorders, ingestion of these carbohydrates can significantly worsen disease symptoms. How are low FADMAP diets constructed to control this nutritional issue, and where do patients need help and guidance maintaining these diets?

    Host Kathy King welcomes dietitian Patsy Catsos, author of IBS Free at Last. Ms. Catsos has a private practice in Portland, ME and has been an early adopter of the FODMAP approach for patients with functional bowel disorders.
