Research

Master’s Thesis
Effectiveness of Fiber on Constipation and Related Symptoms in Patients with IBS-C
This project was designed to study whether the effects of increasing fiber in the diet of a patient with IBS-C would decrease their symptoms of abdominal pain, bloating, and constipation.
Specifically the project helped to determine whether increasing dietary sources of fiber or using a fiber supplementation were beneficial, and if so, which was more effective?
