There is a growing body of evidence to suggest that dietary constituents at least exacerbate symptoms and perhaps contribute to the development of the irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). While the evidence suggests that true food allergies are relatively uncommon, less clearly defined food intolerances may be an important contributor to symptoms in IBS patients. This article reviews the literature supporting a causal link between food and the symptoms of IBS as well as the evidence supporting dietary interventions as a way of managing IBS symptoms.
