About Us


Your Partners in Gut-Friendly Weight Loss

Casa de Sante is the first and only telehealth weight loss clinic that understands the unique connection between your gut and achieving lasting weight loss success.

Casa de Sante was founded by Dr. Onyx Adegbola, a Johns Hopkins-trained physician-scientist and mother of three, who understands firsthand the challenges of managing gut health while pursuing weight loss goals. As a former pharmaceutical executive, Dr. Adegbola has a deep understanding of the science behind GLP-1 medications, while her personal experience with her family led her to embrace the transformative power of the low FODMAP diet. Dr. Adegbola is a member of Mensa who enjoys cooking and reading in her spare time.

Our Mission:

To empower individuals with digestive sensitivities to achieve their weight loss goals without sacrificing gut health. GLP-1 medications are highly effective for weight loss but often come with challenging GI side effects like nausea, bloating, and diarrhea.

Typical protein powders and supplements can exacerbate these side effects due to high FODMAP ingredients, making it harder to stick with treatment. Casa de Sante's medically-formulated low FODMAP products are designed to complement GLP-1 therapy, easing side effects while supporting weight loss
Our all-in-one program combines expert medical supervision, tailored nutrition, and premium low FODMAP products for a better GLP-1 experience and results.

The Low FODMAP Diet

Here at Casa de Sante we put your health and wellbeing first. For this reason, we work closely with FODMAP Friendly to ensure that our products are low FODMAP and kind to your tummy.

FODMAP Friendly is a world leader in assisting people with Irritable Bowel Syndrome to manage their symptoms with the low FODMAP diet. They are based in Melbourne, but assist people worldwide with simple and practical tools that can be used by dietitians, nutritionists, the food industry and the general public. These tools help make daily life simple and enjoyable while on a low FODMAP diet.

FOD –What?

The low FODMAP diet is gaining popularity, and for good reason. This oddly named diet is now scientifically proven to provide relief for people suffer with chronic abdominal symptoms or Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), including bloating, excess wind, cramping and altered bowel habits, constipation or diarrhoea or alternating between the two.

What are FODMAPs?

FODMAP is an acronym for Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides and Polyols, wow that was a mouthful! In a nutshell these are the scientific names for four types of carbohydrate molecules found naturally a variety of fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes and milk products. The low FODMAP diet is designed to limit foods that contain these molecules, subsequently reducing abdominal symptoms and IBS.  

What happens when we eat fodmaps?

When we eat, food passes from the mouth down the esophagus to the stomach. In the stomach food is mixed and broken down before being slowly released into the small intestine. Enzymes in the here continue to break food down to single molecules so that it can be absorbed from the small intestine into the blood stream. Any part of food that isn't broken down or absorbed will continue its path along the digestive tract and pass into the large intestine, or colon, for elimination.


There are two processes that can occur during this progression that may trigger symptoms in certain people including:


  1. Certain FODMAPs are highly osmotic and readily draw water into the small and large intestine. This can effect how fast the bowel moves, and cause diarrheas'.

  1. When FODMAPs reach the large intestine they are fermented by the bacteria that naturally live there and just like when beer is fermented, this process creates gas and bubbles. For the individual this results in abdominal distention, bloating and cramping. 


If you suffer with abdominal symptoms or IBS, a low FODMAP diet may help. If you would like to learn more you can visit www.fodmapfriendly.com. However, I would also encourage you to work with a FODMAP trained Dietitian.




Molecules resist digestion, pass through the digestive tract to the colon where they are fermented, creating IBS symptoms.


“oligo” means “few” and “saccharide” means sugar. These molecules made up of individual sugars joined together in a chain. Include Fructans & Galactans found in onion, garlic, wheat, barley, rye, inulin, some dried fruit and Legumes (kidney beans, lentils, chickpeas, soy beans).


“di” means two. This is a double sugar molecule. Lactose is the di-saccharide found in milk, yoghurt, some soft cheese’s, ice cream, custard and cream.


“mono” means single. This is a single-sugar molecule.
Fructose in excess of glucose found in asparagus, apples, mango, honey, cherries, some dried fruit, pears, juice and high fructose corn syrup.


The easiest FODMAP to remember!


Sugar alcohols including Sorbitol & Mannitol found in cauliflower, mushrooms, snow peas, stone fruit and certain artificially sweetened products e.g. mints and gums.
