Nutritional issues in irritable bowel syndrome.

Author information

Division of Gastroenterology, University Hospital, Nottingham, UK.

The evidence for this is reviewed with regard to recent studies investigating symptom reporting, mono- and disaccharide malabsorption and probiotics. The development of objective measures remains an urgent priority because of the high placebo response to any dietary intervention in irritable bowel syndrome.
