IBS Group Education

IBS Group Education Session Overview

This group session addresses the background and management of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), through the evidence-based dietary advice (including low FODMAP diet) and mindfulness strategies delivered by an experienced gut specialist dietitian. The group will Include a maximum of 15 attendees. For those who benefit from the diet, we strongly recommend that you attend the follow-up group session which goes through the reintroduction process. Research, Including that from our team at King's College London, suggests 70% of people with IBS benefit from this approach. If you do not see any benefit after the first session, it’s recommended that you see a dietitian one-on-one who will be able to troubleshoot with you.

Why do you need to see a dietitian for guidance?

The low FODMAP diet is a complex diet that includes 3 district stages:

Stage 1: Restriction of high FODMAP foods from the diet for 4-6 weeks
Stage 2: Re-introduction of high FODMAP foods back in the diet to identify intolerances Stage 3: Personalisation of long-term diet

The success rate and safety of this diet is influenced by how well you are able follow the diet and lifestyle strategies which we will discuss. This in turn depends on how empowered you feel and how well you know its principles.

Why attend our group session?

While no personalised advice can be provided in a group setting, our dietitians will fully educate you on the principles of the low FODMAP diet and lifestyle strategies as well as providing practical suggestions on how to implement these into your daily life. In addition, research has shown that the low FODMAP diet can have a negative impact on the bacteria that live in our gut, as well as on the intake of key nutrients (e.g. calcium). Our dietitians will ensure such impact is as minimal as possible through appropriate support and guidance on your dietary habits.

The group sessions also provide a unique opportunity to meet other people who face similar symptoms and troubles to you, exchange ideas and experiences, and support each other in a safe learning environment.
