The Low FODMAP Option is an add on option to the Complete Assessment Package designed for clients who have been told by their GP or Gastroenterologist that they have Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and should follow a “low-FODMAP diet”. The Complete Assessment Package will assess your nutritional needs, and an individualized Meal Plan with your IBS subtype in mind will be designed for you. In addition to the Nutrition Education Session that is provided to go over your Meal Plan, an additional Nutrition Education Session about following a low-FODMAP diet will also be provided.
FODMAPS is an acronym for fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides and polyols (sugar alcohols) which are the specific types of carbohydrate that are fermented by the gut bacteria, resulting in increased gas production, abdominal pain, bloating and either diarrhea and constipation or a combination of both.
*NOTE: If you would like to take the low-FODMAP Nutrition Education Session as a stand-alone session, then please request an Hourly Consultation. When you download the Intake and Service Option Form and select that session, please mark low-FODMAP teaching in the Goals and Expectations section of the form.
The advantages of taking the Complete Assessment Package with this as an add-in service, is that it will enable me to assess the adequacy of your current diet, as well as determine your nutritional needs based on your age, gender, activity level, any other diagnosis you may have, and any medications you may be taking. I will then design a Meal Plan just for you, with your diverticulosis factored in. Then at the final appointment in the Complete Assessment Package where we meet for me to teach you your Meal Plan, I will also provide you with this additional low-FODMAP teaching. You will also be provided with a 7-page teaching resource to bring home as a reference.
