Low FODMAPs diet for treatment of functional gastrointestinal syndromes: clinical efficacy and mechanism of action

Please note that the job is no longer active!

A low FODMAPs (short chain fermentable sugars) diet has been suggested for treatment of irritable bowel syndrome and of gluten sensitivity. The primary object of the study is to assess whether a low FODMAPs diet reduces symptoms in these patients and whether it alters biochemical and functional intestinal parameter. The study is prospective, open, non randomized. Patients enrolled in the study will be on a low FODMAPs diet for 8 weeks followed by 8 weeks progressive reintroduction of food rich in FODMAPs in an attempt to identify food responsible for symptoms. Nutritional and functional parameters will be monitored including intestinal gas production (H and methane) by breath test.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
