Diet for Gastrointestinal Diseases

Dietary modifications in gastrointestinal tract disorder are designed to alleviate symptoms, correct nutrient deficiencies, and, when possible, address the primary cause of difficulty. In disease, assessment of the nature and severity of the primary gastrointestinal problem precedes targeted medical, nutrition, and other forms of therapy. Increased intakes of energy, protein, vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes are frequently required to replace nutrients lost as a result of impaired digestive and absorptive capacity. Consistency, meal frequency, and other characteristics of the diet may be altered to fit the patient’s needs. Medical nutrition therapy (MNT) for all patients with diseases of the intestines must be individualized. The primary emphasis in dietary management isthe reduction of carbohydrate foods that are likely to be malabsorbed and fermented, including legumes, soluble fiber, resistant starches, and simple sugars such as fructose and alcohol sugars.
