Celiac Disease, Crohn’s and Colitis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Imagine being able to enjoy eating without the constant worry of flare-ups and other pain associated with digestive disorders. Often, you know what to eat and what to avoid, but that leaves little inspiration for what to eat day-to-day. While it may seem impossible to find interesting and palatable dishes, collaborating with a Dietitian can open up your food options.
What you need to know before choosing a Dietitian:
Digestive disorders, which includes conditions such as IBS, IBD, celiac disease, GERD, chronic constipation, and gallbladder disorders, are common and can lead to a very limited diet and potentially malnourishment/lacking key nutrients. Find a Dietitian whose practice focuses on digestive disorders.
What to expect when working with a Dietitian:
A Dietitian can help you learn which foods are triggers for your symptoms. The focus should be on ADDING nutritious and balanced foods that work for your unique dietary needs – and ultimately improving your relationship with food. A Dietitian can also help you navigate supplements that may assist with symptom management and will advocate for the best treatments with your healthcare team.
