CASELLAS, Francesc et al. Consensus document on exclusion diets in irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2018, vol.35, n.6, pp.1450-1466.  Epub Feb 03, 2020. ISSN 1699-5198.

This paper summarizes the contents of a consensus document on exclusion diets in irritable bowel disease that was developed by a task force from SEPD, FEAD, SENPE, FESNAD, SEÑ, SEEN, SEGHNP, SEDCA and ADENYD. The complete document is available at the FEAD and in SENPE websites.

Irritable bowel syndrome is a highly prevalent functional digestive disorder where, in addition to drugs, therapy includes diet and acquisition of healthy habits as basic elements for its control. In order to facilitate dietary counseling for these patients in daily practice, the present consensus document on the role of exclusion diets was developed. To this end, consensus opinions were collected from various experts in the national scientific societies aiming at establishing recommendations applicable to the health care of patients with irritable bowel syndrome.

Keywords : Consensus document; Irritable bowel syndrome; FODMAP; Gluten; Lactose; Education for health; Exclusion diets.
