Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a functional gastrointestinal disorder that currently affects five million Canadians. Without a doubt, IBS has a major impact on quality of life as this condition leads to symptoms such as pain, constipation and bloating, and is a major reason why individuals are absent from work and school. Deficient diet, imbalance of gut bacteria, and daily life stressors are just a few factors that can lead to IBS. In this lecture, Dr. Kate Rhéaume will discuss how to address the causes and symptoms of IBS, with a focus on the role of the Monash certified Low-FODMAP diet, fibre, probiotics, and lifestyle strategies to help manage this condition.
