The low FODMAP diet eliminates carbohydrates and fermentable alcohols because they are not absorbed by the intestine, but are fermented by the micro biota, causing bloating and flatulence . FODMAP includes short chain carbohydrates like fructose and lactose, fructose and galactosaccharides, sorbitol and mannitol . Patients with functional gastrointestinal disorders present with symptoms like excessive intestinal gas manifesting as bloating and flatulence. In recent studies the low FODMAP diet has demonstrated effective in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), however, not exist papers that evaluate this treatment in Mexican patients . Нe aim of this study is to evaluate de clinical response of a low FODMAP diet in a group of Mexican population with the diagnosis of IBS in any or its variants.
