1. With a diagnosis of inflammatory bowel disease, what could be discussed with Mrs. Greenway regarding changes to her diet and lifestyle? How would you present this information to Mrs. Greenway? Inflammatory bowel disease which includes Crohn’s disease is often associated with poor digestion and malabsorption of dietary protein, fat, carbohydrates, water and a wide variety of vitamins and minerals, therefore what a person eats may never truly get into the body (CCFA, 2017). I would advise Mrs. Greenway to eat a well balanced nutritious diet.
However, there is a number of treatments that exist with the purpose of disease maintenance. The management of symptoms is the primary focus of treatment options. Minimizing the psychological impact on patients, particularly youths, is also a concern. Quality of life can be greatly improved, in spite of the fact that there is no cure. The goal of this paper is to analyze potential solutions to improve the quality of life for patients with Crohn’s disease, with a specific focus on dietary changes and
When I was first diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, a common colon disease, I had no idea what it was. It wasn’t until several tests and explanations from multiple doctors that my parents and I started to understand the extent of the problem. Although it didn’t seem like it would be a big deal, it quickly took over my entire life. Dealing with the condition meant chronic pain, medication, and many more doctors’ visits. Fortunately, my case wasn’t too severe.
Parents and family members with a child of any age would also benefit from the information delivered in this speech although older children may not receive such impactful results. Significance: This speech is relevant to my audience because the impact of such a significant diagnosis is a life changing and emotional event for families and the need for direction and guidance at such a critical time in their child’s life is essential. My audience should understand that providing their child with early intervention therapy will impact their child’s life indefinitely.
We are what we eat. What we give our bodies determines how healthy we will be, and this is the reason why there are always ongoing studies on what the best diets to follow are. A popular debatable topic that arose in the recent years is whether gluten-free diets are healthier, especially for the brain, for the general population. It became an even more debatable subject in 2013 when Dr. David Perlmutter, an American physician, published a controversial book, Grain Brain, trying to shift the attention towards that issue; his book is one of these must-cite books whenever this issue is brought up. Gluten is a protein mainly found in wheat, barley, and rye (but actually not in rice, quinoa, corn, buckwheat, or millet) (“Gluten-free diet,”) and
A gluten allergy can result in Coeliac disease which is a condition of the small intestine. Gluten is found in rye, barley, and wheat and it reacts with the small bowel causing the immune system to attack the bowels lining. Sometimes it?s subtle while other times you know that you have a problem. When it is not treated it can lead to anemia, diseases of the bone, and even some types of cancer.
Our gastrointestinal tracts work hard to keep us healthy and happy. When gut health is compromised, we can face major health consequences. Here’s how to use good nutrition to keep your digestion humming along. “Heal the gut and you heal yourself.” – Gerard E. Mullin, MD
A gluten-free diet is a restriction on gluten, which is found in wheat and related grains like barley and rye. A common usage for gluten-free diet is by people affected by celiac disease or a wheat allergy. A gluten-free diet requires a person not to eat some nutrients that may lead to deficiency in iron, calcium, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, and folate (University of Wisconsin, 2011). Also, the diet will result the body to become restrained in bowel movement from an inefficiency amount of fiber. In regards to effect of the stomach, the immune system can be hindered by the insufficient amount of helpful bacteria (University of Wisconsin, 2011).
Reflecting on what I’ve learned in class, the physical barriers to accessing food my Oma faces are a legitimate concern. I can identify her severe osteoarthritis contributing to her malnutrition because it makes it difficult to obtain and access food. I empathize with the feeling of frustration and self-doubt experienced when your difficulties aren’t resolving. I love my Oma and this reflection has truly made me realize how monitoring nutritional status is essential through all ages. Eating disorders occur at any age, to any
Many people are unable to consume gluten in any form and if they do, they contract a number of diseases. The most common form of gluten-intolerance causes the celiac disease. It can also cause osteoporosis, cancer, fatigue, anemia, irritable bowel disease, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis and lupus. Gluten is present in various foods that we eat every day – rice, corn, soy, bread, biscuits, cake, cereals, pasta, soup, sauces
There are a few risks associated with gluten free diets that escape the perception of most consumers. One is tied to the fact that many gluten free products are being aggressively marketed as healthier alternatives to their gluten counterparts and even as promoting weight loss. Many of these claims are debatable because they lack any sort of empirical evidence to back them up. However, the lack of evidence hasn 't stopped a great number of gluten tolerant people from indulging rather recklessly in gluten free diets in the hopes of achieving weight loss or significant health improvements
Failure to thrive is most prevalent in developing countries; however, in the United States minority, immigrant, or low-income status is an indicator of child eating behavior. FTT is a general term that refers to an infant or child whose current weight and weight gain are below the expected weight of a child of that age (3). It is a common problem and usually recognized in the first two years of life. The most common cause of FTT is linked to inadequate caloric intake, which is why nutritional support is one of the first interventions required to treat it. There are a wide variety of anthropometric criteria that are used to define FTT in a child.
The previously fine mealtimes disappear when the parent's desire to nurture meets the child's desire for independence. While parents worry about micro and macro nutrients, your toddler is looking for you to acknowledge a different need that could be called developmental or life cycle nutrition. In developmental nutrition, food satisfies hunger and the desire to develop mastery. The differing goals between parent and child are behind most feeding problems. The natural parenting desire to provide macro and micronutrients gets separated from the child's desire to self feed.
