Finding a FODMAP Dietician

By November 9, 2011

Follow me on:

As you may know, I have been closely following the research on the low FODMAP diet for IBS. The research to date has been positive, and I love that these researchers are finally addressing what IBS sufferers have been saying all along: Specific foods can be triggers for IBS symptoms.

The caveat with the low FODMAPs diet has always been to try it only under the supervision of a qualified nutritionist due to the risk of nutritional deficiencies. I am happy to announce a new resource to help make the process of finding someone who is trained in overseeing the diet. Jeffrey Roberts has posted a page on the Irritable Bowel Syndrome Self Help and Support Group which contains a list of dieticians who can administer the diet:

The list is just in preliminary stages, but hopefully will fill up with options that are close to where you live.
