Should you stay in a low FODMAP diet forever? a tale of prebiotics and probiotics


Hello fellow warriors! I wanted to write a follow up to my blog post about the Low FODMAP Diet because you may have noticed that I strongly urged those considering the diet to only do so with the guidance of a Registered Dietitian. As I mentioned, this is really important because there is a risk of gut health imbalances when you eliminate FODMAP foods from your diet for a long time.

Remember that FODMAP stands for

Fermentable

Oligosaccharides

Disaccharides,

Monosaccharides, and

Polyols!

A low FODMAP diet is often recommended to help those with Irritable Bowel Syndrome and may help those with Fibromyalgia and Sjögren’s Syndrome as well.
