Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Class Summary 

You’ve tried limiting this, and adding that, but it still seems that your IBS symptoms just don’t want to go away?

Join us for this informative class on the evidence-based recommendations to manage common symptoms of IBS including gas, bloating, diarrhea, and constipation. You’ll learn about key diet foundations, as well as an introduction to the FODMAP diet and be provided with handouts to support the material that is reviewed. Patients can choose to book a 1-on-1 assessment with the Dietitian after this class to further refine individual recommendations.

This 1.5 hour information session is taught by a Barrie and Community Family Health Team Registered Dietitian.

  • Know the risk factors and causes of IBS.
  • Recognize the dietary factors may contribute to the symptoms of IBS, including gas, bloating, diarrhea, and constipation.
