Low-FODMAPs with or without Gluten-Free Diet in IBS

In a small study with 60 patients with irritable bowel syndrome (DDW abstract 374), the response rate to a Low-FODMAPs/Normal gluten diet was as effective as a Low-FODMAPs/Gluten-free diet.  Both diets were more effective in reducing abdominal symptoms than a normal diet.  A summary of this abstract from Gastroenterology & Endoscopy News: Nixing Gluten Offers No Added Benefit To Low-FODMAPs Diet for IBS

According to Lin Chang, MD: “The beneficial effect of low FODMAPs does not appear to be predominantly due to gluten avoidance.”
