Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Low FODMAP Diet
Official Title  ICMJE Does Irritable Bowel Syndrome Improved by Low FODMAP Diet ?
Brief Summary The patients having a syndrome SII would be more intolerant in the fructose than the healthy subjects and would benefit from a fructose diet but also from the fructans which contain some fructose. The intolerance in the fructose is diagnosed thanks to a respiratory test after absorption of fructose. However, the eviction of the fructose is sometimes recommended to the patients without having realized beforehand the test of intolerance.
Detailed Description The main objective is to evaluate the efficacy of the FODMAPS diet on IBS symptoms and to correlate the results with the respiratory test
Study Type  ICMJE Interventional
Study Phase  ICMJE Not Applicable
Study Design  ICMJE Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Condition  ICMJE Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Intervention  ICMJE Other: Low FODMAPS diet
FODMPAS low diet in patients with IBS and positive breath test for fructose FODMAPS low diet in patients with IBS and negative breath test for fructose
Study Arms  ICMJE
  • Active Comparator: Low FODMAPS diet and positive breath testing for fructose
    Patients with breath testing positive have a low FODMAPS diet. The test will be considered as positive if we observe an increase of more than 20 ppm of H2 and/or CH4 on a sample with regard to the basal concentration
    Intervention: Other: Low FODMAPS diet
  • Sham Comparator: negative breath testing for fructose
    patients with negative breath test have a low FODMAPS diet
    Intervention: Other: Low FODMAPS diet
