About IBD

What is IBD?

Inflammatory Bowel Disease or IBD groups together two conditions: Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis.

Crohn’s Disease

Sufferers of Crohn’s disease experience the inflammation of the lining of any part of the digestive tract. Typically, it affects a part of the small intestine just before the colon.

Ulcerative Colitis

Ulcerative colitis, on the other hand, occurs in the colon and the rectum, causing long-lasting inflammation and ulcers.

How Our IBD Dietitian and Nutritionist Can Help Manage Crohn’s & Colitis

During nutritional counselling sessions, our registered dietitians and nutritionists assist men and women in a number of ways with the management of IBD. Diet therapy can include:

Have an IBD dietitian conduct a thorough assessment of your dietary habits, medical history, and nutritional status to understand each individual needs and challenges.

Outline what foods to eat and what foods to avoid with Crohn’s & Ulcerative Colitis, especially for those with a recent diagnosis.

Work with you to identify trigger foods that may exacerbate symptoms of IBD.

Help you select the right foods to compensate for various deficiencies (e.g., calcium, Vitamin D, zinc, magnesium)

Help you establish a specific IBD-friendly diet aimed at reducing symptoms and promoting healing.

Develop a personalized diet plan that aims to minimize symptoms and promote healing of the digestive tract. This may involve specific dietary modifications tailored to the type of IBD (Crohn’s Disease or Ulcerative Colitis) and the location and severity of inflammation.

Provide guidance as you implement changes to your diet and make modifications, if needed.

Provide guidance on meal frequency and timing to help manage IBD symptoms and optimize nutrient absorption.

Have any questions answered by a colitis or Crohn’s nutritionist and dietitian.

Support your overall IBD management program.

Provide guidance on fibre intake, as some individuals with IBD may benefit from a low-fibre diet, while others may require increased fibre intake based on symptoms.

Suggest foods, snacks, meals and IBD-friendly recipes, specific to your individual condition.

Recommend appropriate fluid intake and suggest hydrating beverages for optimal digestive health.

Make recommendations for food product substitutions with Crohn’s and Colitis in mind.

Recommend nutritional supplements to address specific nutrient deficiencies commonly associated with IBD or to support overall health.

Take part in follow-up sessions with a Crohn’s and Colitis dietitian that allow for the ongoing monitoring and tweaking of the nutrition plan.

Help manage other co-existing health conditions and diseases, including weight management, women’s health concerns, men’s health and nutrition, anti-inflammation and more.

Work to help improve your overall digestive health, reducing nausea, cramping et al.
