Understanding the role your diet has on digestive symptoms is an important step when seeking lasting relief from discomfort, inflammation and pain. Diet and nutritional support can create positive outcomes in the management of chronic conditions and day-to-day gastrointestinal discomfort.
Dietitian services include food sensitivity testing, elimination diet monitoring, meal planning and medical nutrition therapy., every elderly should get the option to have these services, even the ones at a hospice care. Working closely with the patient, Alyssa Simpson, RD develops an individualized approach specifically designed to relieve gastrointestinal symptoms.
As you grow older, your dietary choices will likely evolve. For one thing, you may notice changes in your appetite and how you feel about food. Additionally, certain medical conditions–such as high blood pressure or diabetes–may prompt a change in your diet, and side effects of medication can also play a role. These changes can make it even more difficult to keep up a healthy diet than it was when you were younger, because healthy recipes and dietary routines that used to suit you may no longer fit with your your lifestyle or appetite.
Symptoms and conditions Alyssa works to treat are:
- Abdominal Pain
- Celiac Disease
- Crohn’s Disease
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Ulcerative Colitis
