Dietary Therapy with the Crohn’s Disease Exclusion Diet is a Successful Strategy for Induction of Remission in Children and Adults Failing Biological Therapy.

Dietary Therapy with the Crohn’s Disease Exclusion Diet is a Successful Strategy for Induction of Remission in Children and Adults Failing Biological Therapy. J Crohns Colitis. 2017 May 19;: Authors: Sigall Boneh R, Sarbagili-Shabat C, Yanai H, Chermesh I, Ben Avraham S, Boaz M, Levine A Abstract Background: Loss of response (LoR) to biologics in Crohn’s disease (CD) is a significant clinical problem. Dietary therapy as a treatment strategy in this setting has not been previously reported. We report the use of dietary strategies using enteral nutrition coupled with the…

Diet and microbiota in inflammatory bowel disease: The gut in disharmony.

Related Articles Diet and microbiota in inflammatory bowel disease: The gut in disharmony. World J Gastroenterol. 2017 Mar 28;23(12):2124-2140 Authors: Rapozo DC, Bernardazzi C, de Souza HS Abstract Bacterial colonization of the gut shapes both the local and the systemic immune response and is implicated in the modulation of immunity in both healthy and disease states. Recently, quantitative and qualitative changes in the composition of the gut microbiota have been detected in Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, reinforcing the hypothesis of dysbiosis as a relevant mechanism underlying inflammatory bowel disease…

Iron Supplements Modulate Colon Microbiota Composition and Potentiate the Protective Effects of Probiotics in Dextran Sodium Sulfate-induced Colitis.

Iron Supplements Modulate Colon Microbiota Composition and Potentiate the Protective Effects of Probiotics in Dextran Sodium Sulfate-induced Colitis. Inflamm Bowel Dis. 2017 Mar 31;: Authors: Constante M, Fragoso G, Lupien-Meilleur J, Calvé A, Santos MM Abstract BACKGROUND: Iron is an important nutrient for both the host and colonizing bacteria. Oral iron supplementation may impact the composition of the microbiota and can be particularly damaging to patients suffering from inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). However, patients with IBD may require iron supplementation to treat their anemia. METHODS: We fed mice with diets…

Use of the low-FODMAP diet in inflammatory bowel disease.

Use of the low-FODMAP diet in inflammatory bowel disease. J Gastroenterol Hepatol. 2017 Mar;32 Suppl 1:40-42 Authors: Gibson PR Abstract Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)-like symptoms are not uncommon in patients with quiescent inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). While gluten-free diet is applied by patients, there are no reported interventional studies. The low-FODMAP diet, on the other hand, has efficacy similar to that seen in patients with IBS in three unblinded or observational studies of IBD cohorts who had well-controlled inflammatory disease and in one small randomized cross-over study. FODMAP intake by…

Using eHealth strategies in delivering dietary and other therapies in patients with irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease.

Using eHealth strategies in delivering dietary and other therapies in patients with irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease. J Gastroenterol Hepatol. 2017 Mar;32 Suppl 1:27-31 Authors: Ankersen DV, Carlsen K, Marker D, Munkholm P, Burisch J Abstract Health-care systems around the world are facing increasing costs. Non-adherent, chronically ill patients are one such expense incurred by health-care providers. Web-based home-monitoring of patients-or eHealth-has been shown to increase adherence to medical therapy, facilitate contact between patients and health-care professionals, and reduce time to remission for patients with inflammatory bowel disease…
