Dr. Ravid Sharma Discuss FODMAP Diets.
Dr. Sharma was the guest presenter on a CDI (Commonwealth Diagnostics International) DDW 2021 Functional GI Trends Webinar: Using Low FODMAP Diet To Treat IBS Symptoms.
FODMAP, which stands for Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides, And Polyols, are groups of small-chain carbohydrates that, very often, are not wholly absorbed in the small intestine.
Dr. Sharma’s presentation was featured online on CDI’s website, including excerpts from the presentation. “I always like to try diet first for anybody with IBS symptoms. I’m a big diet guy, and with my practice, I have had very good success with a low-FODMAP diet. I have seen measurable improvement for my patients. The data is very strong.” – Rajiv Sharma, MD
