Do you suffer from diarrhea, constipation or bloating? Do you suspect you have Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) or have you been diagnosed with IBS? IBS is a functional bowel disorder which means the bowel looks normal but does not function properly. IBS can cause pain and discomfort in the abdominal area as well as frequent diarrhea, bloating and constipation. IBS can have an extremely negative impact on your quality of life. This doesn’t have to be the case. Learn how to manage your IBS for good.
What should you do if you think you have IBS?
It is a good idea to check in with your GP for medical tests to confirm your suspected diagnosis as many digestive disorders have similar symptoms. This may be a simple blood test or further investigation may be needed. We recommend that you rule out coeliac disease and inflammatory bowel disease before visitng us.
Booking an appointment with a Dietitian will be your next step. A Dietitian can help you to optimise your diet and lifestyle to help you to overcome digestive symptoms for good.
How We Can Help
During your initial consultation, your Dietitian will assess your symptoms and confirm a potential diagnosis of IBS. We will identify triggers in your diet and lifestyle and equip you with the knowledge and skills to manage your IBS for good. Your Dietitian will also carry out a complete nutritional assessment, diet history, body composition analysis including weight, BMI, waist circumference, body fat %, lean body mass, waist to hip measurement and more.
Depending on your symptoms, a FODMAPs diet may be the best and most effective treatment option for you. This will involve following a special diet for a set period of time to relieve symptoms of IBS. You will then commence a phase of food reintroduction where food groups will be tested to determine which foods trigger your symptoms. The FODMAPs diet has been scientifically proven to be extremely effective as a treatment option for IBS.
Your Dietitian will be able to determine if the FODMAPs programme is the right step for you after your initial consultation. Further tests might need to be carried out before you can embark on this plan.
