Project Overview +

This program educates GI patients about a low FODMAP diet in an engaging, animation- and voice-based interface. Patients learn about what FODMAPs are, what they do in the body, how to eliminate them from the diet, and how to challenge each FODMAP group to find their triggers. 

(FODMAP is an acronym: Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides and Polyols. These are fermentable sugars that some cause GI symptoms in some people.)

Aims +

Aim 1: Develop and validate a patient food diary and symptom tracker.

Aim 2: Create an assessment tool to determine if symptoms are related to meals.

Aim 3: Develop educational content on the FODMAP diet.
