Free sample

The diagnosis of a functional bowel disorder is based on typical symptom picture, i.e. on carefully taken patient history.Typical of the irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is abdominal pain or discomfort together with a change in the frequency of defecation and in the consistency of stool (diarrhoea or constipation). In diarrhoea-predominant symptoms, the exclusion of coeliac disease, microscopic colitis and lactose malabsorption is advisable.Severe functional bowel symptoms may worsen the quality of life in the same extent as organic diseases. Colonoscopy is necessary if the patient has alarming symptoms or clinical findings. A supportive patient–physician relationship is essential in the treatment. Symptom-relieving medications that can be used as needed include amitriptyline and other antidepressants, for diarrhoea loperamide and for constipation soluble fibres.

The low-FODMAP diet is changing lives. If you suffer from the pain and discomfort of a digestive condition such as IBS, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, or nonresponsive celiac disease, it just might change yours.

The Complete Low-FODMAP Diet (cowritten by Sue Shepherd) introduced this revolutionary treatment, which is rapidly becoming the first-line recommendation by doctors and dietitians worldwide. FODMAP is an acronym that stands for a group of difficult-to-digest carbohydrates found in foods such as wheat, milk, beans, soy, and some fruits, vegetables, nuts, and sweeteners. More than three quarters of adults with IBS who reduce their intake of these foods gain relief.

Now, this follow-up cookbook brings you 150 simple, delicious, and brand-new recipes that are full of flavor but low in FODMAPs. The mix includes:breakfasts to start the day off right (Blueberry Pancakes; Banana-Chocolate Chip Muffins)starters and sides for every occasion (Spring Rolls; Chicken, Bacon, and Pesto Mini Pizzas; Stuffed Roasted Bell Peppers)soups and salads full of flavor (Vietnamese Beef Noodle Salad; Creamy Seafood Soup)entrées that make you feel good (Chicken and Vegetable Curry; Speedy Spaghetti Bolognese; Beef Satay Stir-Fry with Peanut Sauce)desserts that satisfy (Flourless Chocolate Cake; Almond Cookies; Baked Blueberry Cheesecakes).The low-FODMAP diet puts an end to suffering in silence, fearing the possible consequences of every meal, or confining yourself to a handful of bland, “safe” foods. The only thing missing from this comprehensive collection is the FODMAPs—and you’d never know it!
