fruits_vegetables_584x342Jefferson gastroenterologist, Stephanie Moleski, MD and nutritionist, Emily Rubin, RD were featured in a FOX 29 News segment about irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

IBS is an intestinal disorder that causes cramp-like pain, gass, bloating and changes in bowel habits. A diet high in fruits and vegetables can actually contribute to IBS.

According to Dr. Moleski in her interview with FOX 29, “Next to the common cold, IBS is the most common reason people miss work.”

Emily Rubin explains that the FODMAP diet is helping patients feel relief. FODMAPs are extra sugars or carbohydrates found in certain foods that can cause the unpleasant symptoms of IBS.
