PODCAST. How do FODMAPs trigger GI symptoms? Which of your patients might benefit from the low FODMAP diet?
My podcast guest is registered dietitian nutritionist, digestive health expert and Best of Boston dietitian Kate Scarlata. She’s known for her work in the area of the low FODMAP diet, the novel diet therapy used to manage IBS symptoms that first originated in Australia. In her private practice, Kate specializes in health conditions including: IBS, celiac disease, inflammatory bowel disease, and small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO).
Find out more about Kate.
I heard Kate speak at a conference and her session was so informative I couldn’t wait to share her information with you on the podcast. In part one, Kate reviews what FODMAPs are, how they trigger GI symptoms, what a low FODMAP diet is (foods included and removed) and which of your patients might benefit from it.
Kate shares a tasty low FODMAP recipe for One Skillet Company Chicken.
