Dietary support for gastrointestinal diseases
No other organ system is so immediately and profoundly affected by diet than the gastrointestinal tract, and there are few acute or chronic diseases where dietary manipulation is not an important component of the diagnostic approach and management. This webinar will provide an update on feeding trials as a diagnostic tool, how key dietary components interact with the GI tract, the impact of diet on the bacteriome, and will discuss the specific management of some key diseases including pancreatitis, constipation, and severe gastroenteritis.
