Diet and irritable bowel syndrome : triggers, testing and treatment

Objective

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is one of the most difficult and unsatisfactorily treated chronic diseases in primary healthcare. No simple diagnostic test for IBS exists currently, however, there is increasing evidence that there are dietary and immunological components to this disorder, and that food specific IgG may be a useful diagnostic marker. It is proposed that this project will :
i) conduct epidemiological research to establish the usefulness of food-reactive IgG as a dietary marker for IBS
ii) use the knowledge acquired in
iii) to develop a rapid, one-step, point-of-care test to identify the dietary trigger of IBS.
