Dr. Oz: What are Fodmaps? Identify Stomach Symptoms & New Gluten Diet


Dr. Oz: New Gluten Diagnosis

Dr. Oz kicked off his show by talking about how an entirely different group of foods may be responsible for stomach pain, gas, and bloating thought to be caused by gluten. In fact, 18 million people may be affected by this other group of foods.

New research has identified this new group of foods and it’s providing hope to a lot of people. Jennifer and Donna are two women who suffered a tremendous amount of digestive-related symptoms and couldn’t find answers from doctors, even after extensive testing for typical culprits like Celiac Disease, Crohn’s Disease, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

    Thanks for the article – so glad to see this diet gaining the attention it deserves. My wife is a registered dietitian who has had IBS for 20 years — but she finally experienced relief thanks to the low FODMAPs diet. On our honeymoon in Mexico, she was in so much pain due to gas that we were about to check into a hospital – and it was not parasites or food poisoning, but simply the mal-absorbed carbohydrates – FODMAPs.

    She was feeling tons better in less than a week on a low FODMAPs diet. This has been such a huge shift for us that we’ve decided to launch a food company to cater to people with food sensitivities. Our first product is a low-FODMAP protein bar – those interested can check it out here:

    I agree! It sounds very much like the issues I have been having but I was confused with what we should be eating during this 10day period?

    This is an extreme, short-term diet option to explore triggers and potential symptoms. However, Dr Oz did not provide specifics on what to eat during the 10-day period.

    Based on the list, it appears that you should be able to eat meats and salads using lettuce, for example.
