NICE patient leaflet on diet in IBS

NICE has produced a guideline for patients on dietary treatment for IBS, including easy-to-follow advice that is worth considering in all patients. Simple measures such as cutting down on meal size, and decreasing caffeine and alcohol intake can be very helpful. Similarly, avoiding lactose-containing foods can be highly effective in people with lactase deficiency.
