Anonymous – Nutrition Management of IBS-C and Chronic Idiopathic Constipation
Feeling ‘stuck’ with helping patients manage their IBS-C or chronic idiopathic constipation?
I get it. I’m Andrea Hardy, registered dietitian, and co-founder of Nutrition Academy.
Constipation is one of those things where I find my and Susan’s team gets ‘stuck’.
Constipation management can be tricky, especially when the constipation exacerbates so many other symptoms; changes in appetite, bloating, distension, and pain. It’s hard to tease out exactly where you need to go to get people feeling better.
I do a lot of one-on-one RD support, and what I find I get the most calls for is IBS-C. RD’s wondering if a patient has SIBO, if they’ve missed something, or why the low FODMAP diet isn’t working.
Patients have ‘tried everything’ but are still feeling pain, having bloating, and experiencing other gut symptoms – despite our best attempts at managing those symptoms.
The answer is simple: Resolve the constipation FIRST, before you can move on to managing other symptoms or dealign with differential diagnoses!
This workshop is going to give you the tools, practice algorithm, up-to-date evidence, and knowledge to provide patients with appropriate guidance, and coordinate care with allied health as needed!
