The low-FODMAP diet for IBD: Are you chronically bloated and excessively gassy? Do you have ongoing abdominal pain? You may be the one person in ten who suffers from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), a functional disorder of the GI system that can impair quality of life and make eating less enjoyable.
Please join Lauren Mirkin, LDN, CNS for a class about a scientifically proven dietary program to relieve the symptoms of IBS. It is called the low-FODMAP diet. This approach limits or restricts certain groups of carbohydrates that are poorly absorbed and can contribute to these umcomfortable systems of IBS.
Classes are held every 2nd Wednesday of the month from 5:30pm to 7pm, starting on December 11, 2013. There is a fee of $25 per class, and payment must be made prior to class. The class is limited to 5 people per class. Please call the center at 410-828-3585 to register or for more information.

In our strive to continually evaluate effective treatment modalities for common illnesses seen at our Center, we have intitated a monthly journal club where we present and discuss current research. Our objectives are as follows:
- to identify studies that meet criteria for being"evidenced based".
- to identify studies that have limitations.
- to identify ways our center might participate in clinical trials collaborating with other instituitions.
- to discuss ways our treatment protocols, or recommendations to patients might be changed based on results of recent research studies.
