There are a number of gastrointestinal disorders for which changes to eating habits can help to control symptoms and benefit the disorder.
There are many different causes of these gastrointestinal disorders, however dietary management is often a major form of management or treatment.
For example, someone suffering from ongoing constipation may benefit from increasing the intake of types of dietary fibre, or someone with IBS may need to reduce the amount of some foods and drinks that commonly trigger symptoms. It is tempting to try and remove foods or change dietary patterns yourself to try to fix the problem, however without proper knowledge this can sometimes make your symptoms worse. Removing foods or food groups from your diet without having professional advice can result in you missing out on important nutrients in food.
As a dietitian in Wollongong, Denelle understands how the gastrointestinal system works and the evidence-based nutritional treatments for these conditions. Denelle can work alongside your doctors to support you in develop an eating plan that helps to manage your gastrointestinal disorders, whilst still ensuring you are getting the nutrients you need from food.
