Recently in Gut and elsewhere,1–3 rare and common hypomorphic sucrase-isomaltase ( SI ) gene variants have been linked to an increased risk of IBS. Similar to congenital SI deficiency (a form of carbohydrate malabsorption caused by homozygous SI loss-of-function mutations),4 reduced SI enzymatic activity may trigger IBS symptoms via colonic accumulation of undigested disaccharides from starch and sucrose, resulting in fermentation with gas production and osmotic diarrhoea. This information holds potential for patients’ stratification, and the identification of IBS subgroups better suited to benefit from specific dietary restrictions. For instance, diets low in short chain carbohydrates like the FODMAPs (fermentable oligo-, di-, mono-saccharides and polyols that are poorly absorbed in the small intestine) have been shown to be effective in reducing GI symptoms in some patients with IBS,5 6 though this has not been studied in relation to SI genotype and/or function. While sucrose and, in part, starch are not specifically restricted in a standard low FODMAP diet, such a therapeutic approach may be less effective in individuals whose reduced SI activity contributes …

Recently in Gut , a coding sucrase-isomaltase ( SI ) variant (15Phe at single nucleotide polymorphism rs9290264) with 35% reduced disaccharidase activity was reported to increase IBS risk and to correlate with more frequent stools. These observations were not assessed in relation to key dietary factors including carbohydrate (ie, SI substrates) consumption.1 Here, we studied two large German population-based cross-sectional cohorts, namely PopGen (n=639; average age 61.4; 44.8% female) and FoCus...

ABSTRACTIntroduction: Irritable bowel syndrome is a common condition that negatively impacts quality of life and results in significant health care expenditures. The vast majority of IBS patients associate their symptoms with eating. Numerous randomized, controlled trials suggest that restriction of dietary FODMAPs improves overall symptoms, abdominal pain, bloating and quality of life in more than half of IBS sufferers. There is emerging data which suggests that other diets (gluten free, guided...

Osmotic diarrhea and abdominal pain in humans are oftentimes associated with carbohydrate malabsorption in the small intestine due to loss of function of microvillar disaccharidases. Disaccharidases are crucial for the digestion and the subsequent absorption of carbohydrates. This review focuses on sucrase-isomaltase as the most abundant intestinal disaccharidase and the primary or induced pathological conditions that affect its physiological function. Congenital defects are primary factors whic...

IBS is one of the most common types of functional bowel disorder. Increasing attention has been paid to the causative role of food in IBS. Food ingestion precipitates or exacerbates symptoms, such as abdominal pain and bloating in patients with IBS through different hypothesised mechanisms including immune and mast cell activation, mechanoreceptor stimulation and chemosensory activation. Wheat is regarded as one of the most relevant IBS triggers, although which component(s) of this cereal is/are...

Recently in Gut, several publications reported an increased prevalence of hypomorphic (defective) sucrase-isomaltase ( SI ) gene variants in patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS),1 2 and the association with impaired cell-surface expression and reduced digestive function of the corresponding enzyme.3 In addition, hypomorphic SI carriers have shown reduced response compared with non-carriers in a low-FODMAP (fermentable oligo- di- mono-saccharides and polyols) trial of IBS patients with di...

Abstract null null We present a simple preparation method for the stretchable conductive nanocomposites which can still maintain the activity and electrical stability under the condition of large-scale mechanical processing. The preparation scheme takes advantage of the swelling mechanism of the polymer and introduces the precursor silver ions into it. A reducing agent is then incorporated into the polymer matrix, and the silver ions in the polymer matrix are reduced in situ to form silver nanop...
Patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) frequently perceive eating food as a trigger to their gastrointestinal (GI) distress. Several factors involved in driving GI symptoms include malabsorption and fermentation of food substrates, gut microbiota alterations, nocebo and placebo response, and mast cell activation. Nutritional interventions require individualization based on the heterogeneity of symptoms as well as the risk for maladaptive eating patterns that present in those with IBS. Desp...

Our review focuses on the various presentations, diagnosis, and treatment of sucrose–isomaltase deficiency (SID), previously thought to be limited to the pediatric population with severe malabsorptive symptoms. Although sucrase–isomaltase deficiency is presumed to be a rare disorder, it is likely under recognized and more prevalent than is currently known. Congenital sucrase–isomaltase deficiency usually manifests early in life, but the phenotype may vary depending on the mutation(s) present. SI...

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a chronic functional gastrointestinal disorder characterized by abdominal pain associated with defecation or a change in bowel habits. Gut microbiota, which acts as a real organ with well-defined functions, is in a mutualistic relationship with the host, harvesting additional energy and nutrients from the diet and protecting the host from pathogens; specific alterations in its composition seem to play a crucial role in IBS pathophysiology. It is well known that ...

Chronic diarrhoea affects up to 14% of adults, it impacts on quality of life and its cause can be variable. Patients with chronic diarrhoea are presented with a plethora of dietary recommendations, often sought from the internet or provided by those who are untrained or inexperienced. In this review, we summarise the possible causes of chronic diarrhoea that can be managed by diet, the symptom improvement and quality of life benefits but also the potential risks of such dietary treatments. Clini...

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), with its key features of abdominal pain and disturbed bowel habit, is thought by both patients and clinicians to be strongly influenced by diet. However, the complexities of diet have made identifying specific food intolerances difficult. Eating disorders can masquerade as IBS and may need specialist treatment. While typical food allergy is readily distinguished from IBS, the mechanisms of gut-specific adverse reactions to food are only just being defined. These m...

AIM To determine whether gut microbiome composition and function are associated with childhood IBS fructan-induced symptoms. METHODS Faecal samples were collected from 38 children aged 7-17 years with paediatric Rome III IBS, who previously completied a double-blind, randomised, placebo-controlled crossover (fructan vs maltodextrin) trial. Fructan sensitivity was defined as an increa...
