FODMAP test is for diagnosis of IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME(IBS).
If that is suspected you have to control your diet.
DONOT USE PROCESSED FOODS BECAUSE THEY CONTAIN SOME SUGARS THAT CAN CAUSE YOUR SYMPTOMS TO BE WORSE.AVOID MILK,CHEESE,BUTTER AND OTHER DAIRY PRODUCTS.PROCESSED AND BOTTLED JUICES SHOULD BE AVOIDED.ANYTHING THAT COMES IN TINS AND BOTTLES IS BAD FOR YOU.
YOU CAN USE OLIVE OIL IN LOW AMOUNTS.
YOU SHOULD AVOID FRUCTOSE AND LACTOSE CONTAINING PRODUCTS.
THERE ARE FIVE SUGARS THAT CAN CAUSE MALABSORPTION SYNDROMES.
FODMAP ONLY EXCLUDES FRUCTOSE AND LACTOSE.
DO ANY ULTRASOUND WHICH IS INEXPENSIVE.IF YOU HAVE ANY GYNAECOLOGICAL PROBLEM A TRANSVAGINAL ULTRASOUND WILL BE HELPFUL.
ENDOMETRIOSIS CAN BE EXCLUDED BY ULTRASOUND.
