IBS – Diet or Medication?

What are the new findings?

  • In a controlled trial enrolling 470 newly diagnosed primary care IBS patients, a self-management FODMAP-lowering smartphone application was superior to standard medical therapy in alleviating IBS symptoms.
  • The superiority of the diet app was already present at 4 weeks and persisted at 8 and 16 weeks.
  • The diet app had a high acceptability and adherence rate.
