PARTICIPANTS are needed for an ECU study investigating whether fibre can improve gut health, mental wellbeing and sleep for people with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Globally, the condition affects 11 per cent of adults, with 40 per cent having an associated mental health issue such as depression and anxiety, and 33 per cent reporting sleep problems.

The study, led by PhD candidate Tina Yan from ECU’s School of Medical and Health Sciences, aims to evaluate the effects of the supplement Fibre-fix (a combination of dietary fibre) on gut health, sleep, quality of life and mental health of IBS sufferers on a low FODMAP diet.

“People with IBS have an oversensitive gut, which causes many digestive symptoms such as recurrent stomach pain, bloating, flatulence, constipation and diarrhoea,” Ms Yan said

“One solution to IBS is a low FODMAP diet, which can help control IBS symptoms.”
