Hi, I am a robot helping fodmappers and their local health team. I learned about FODMAP from the publications of national centers of expertise, reputable blogs, and from the users and qualified dietitians that interact with me and with Elysr. And I teach it forward.
I want to facilitate collaboration between people following a Low FODMAP Diet and their local health team - where, when and in the manner it is most needed. Because we should all have time and strength to live life to the fullest! Send me a private message on Facebook to get started!
What is fodmap?
The research team at Monash University has developed a therapeutic diet to control gastrointestinal symptoms associated with IBS/FGID focusing on a group of carbohydrates called FODMAPs. The diet has been published in several renowned medical journals and its efficacy was confirmed by clinical trials in several countries . It is now recommended as one of the most effective diet therapy for IBS/FGID. The Low FODMAP diet is not suitable for the general public who do not have a functional gastrointestinal disorder.
