Figure 4 Changes in Copenhagen IBS disease courses after low FODMAP diet treatment. The four different disease courses are depicted before and after the LFD intervention for the IBD and IBS group, separately. Above each figure, the prevalence is denoted as a percentage. The mild indolent course increased significantly following LFD introduction in both patient groups (P < 0.001), while the chronic continuous course and the intermittent course were less common at follow-up. IBD: n = 43; IBS: n = 120. LFD: Low FODMAP diet; IBS: Irritable bowel syndrome; IBD: Inflammatory bowel disease.
