Improving the outcome for IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) patients in Primary Care using the low FODMAP diet approach

The aim of the project is to improve the clinical outcome and quality of life for IBS patients by using the low FODMAP dietary approach. The low FODMAP diet improves symptoms in over 75% of patients and receiving timely advice before undergoing invasive procedures also reduces costs. Currently, capacity allows only a small number of patients to benefit, so extending this would reduce the inequality in service provision.
