Last Chance to Register! Complimentary Webinar Presentation | Wednesday, May 27, at 2 PM EDT | Nuances to Applying the Low FODMAP Diet | Presented by Kate Scarlata, MPH, RDN, LDN | This activity is accredited through Monash University.
Up to 84 percent of individuals with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) perceive diet as a trigger to their GI distress. The most researched evidenced based nutritional therapy for IBS is the low FODMAP diet. Although 50–70 percent of IBS patients will effectively manage their digestive symptoms with the low FODMAP diet, it is not an intervention for all IBS patients.

Join Kate Scarlata, MPH, RDN, LDN, on Wednesday, May 27, 2020, from 2–3 PM EDT, for a webinar that will focus on understanding how reducing FODMAP carbohydrates may be helpful in patient populations. Among other topics, the session will cover the three-phase application of the low FODMAP diet, explain what a FODMAP gentle approach entails, and discuss other modalities to consider in your IBS patients when an exclusion diet is contraindicated.

Learning Objectives
1. Detail factors involved with FODMAPs and GI symptom induction.
2. Describe the 3 phases of the low FODMAP diet.
3. List the criteria for selecting the best candidate for a low FODMAP diet.

About The Sponsor
The Low FODMAP diet was developed by the team at Monash University in Australia. The team identified that a family of short chain carbohydrates (called FODMAPs) were major dietary triggers of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) (affecting 10-15% of the population in the United States). The Low FODMAP Diet now has a high level of clinical evidence and is becoming a primary therapy for IBS. The diet is highly effective in 3 out of 4 IBS patients.
