Abstract

SUMMARY

The faecal microbial flora of two patients with food-related irritable bowel syndrome was examined while they were on a diet excluding symptom-provoking foods, and then on a diet including such a food. The patients reacted differently to the challenge diet but some changes in faecal output, flora and short chain fatty acid content were seen.
