April is IBS Awareness Month and we want people with IBS to Fall in Love with Food Again’. Our relationship with food can sometimes be negatively impacted by the perception that it is to blame for IBS symptoms. The Field Doctor team are on a mission to help people with IBS rediscover flavour, variety and balance in their diets. 

 

We’ve teamed up with IBS Network, the national charity supporting people living with irritable bowel syndrome. Throughout April we will be hosting events online and sharing useful resources to support IBS sufferers. For every meal low FODMAP meal sold in April we’re also going to give 10p to IBS network to support their work. 

What is IBS?

Irritable bowel syndrome or IBS, is a digestive condition that may affect more than 1 in 10 people in the UK. 

Common IBS symptoms include stomach pain or stomach cramps, bloating, wind, diarrhoea and/or constipation. Less common symptoms such as lethargy, nausea, backache or bladder symptoms. IBS is a very individual condition and symptoms will vary for each person.

How do you know you have IBS?

If you suspect you have IBS don’t lose hours to Google or online intolerance tests. Head straight to your GP to get a proper diagnosis of IBS and rule out any other conditions with similar symptoms (e.g. coeliac disease, inflammatory bowel disease).  

Please consult with your GPs urgently if you have any of these symptoms; 

  • new onset gut symptoms 
  • unexplained weight loss 
  • blood in your stool 
  • waking up at night to open your bowels

Don’t suffer in silence, get support

Don’t be afraid to ask for help. You are not alone! Many people leave their symptoms for years and years as they are too embarrassed to talk about them or they are unaware that they can improve their symptoms. 

There may not be a quick fix for IBS but there are many things you can do to tackle the daily discomfort of IBS and these include; making changes to your diet, doing exercise or reducing stress.

IBS & Diet

Many people with IBS feel better after making just simple changes to their diet. 

Common triggers for IBS symptoms include processed, fatty or fried foods, alcohol, caffeine, fizzy drinks, spicy foods or not drinking sufficient fluids. Keep a food and symptom diary to spot and patterns. If you want further dietary guidance please ask your GP to refer you to a dietitian.  

Also think about HOW you eat. Eat regular meals each day, trying not to skip any meals or eating late at night. Smaller meal sizes may ease symptoms and take time to eat your meals, chewing your food well.

The Low FODMAP diet

The low FODMAP diet is special type of diet that avoids foods high in FODMAPs (Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides and Polyols). 

The diet has been well documented to be effective in 50-80% of people with IBS

It is advised that you do this diet under the guidance of an IBS dietitian. They can help tailor the diet to your individual needs and ensure you follow the diet safely and properly. 

If you can’t get access to a low FODMAP trained dietitian then please watch the low FODMAP patient webinar (below) before starting the diet.
