From Research And Practice: Nutrition In Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Paradigm Shift: Health Foods and light food are not needed in chronic inflammatory bowel disease (Cologne – 16 January 2007): The well-known nutrition expert Dalila Bellucci is the author of the nutrition chapter in the new book of the German Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis Association (DCCV) eV , announces today the center for nourishing communication and health journalism (CEC) in Cologne. Dietitian Dalila Bellucci has during his years at the University Hospital of the RWTH Aachen for years with intensive nutritional counseling and therapy dealing with chronic inflammatory bowel disease and has worked for many years together in this area with the DCCV. While ten years ago, the CED patients, or a flat rate a “Health Foods” and was recommended in the hospital, the so-called “light food” is now clear that these diets have no scientific background and have no effect on the disease. Rather, they need a tailored, balancedDiet, says Mller Nothmann that represents the diet in the treatment and prophylaxis of IBD in the new book at 20 pages. Many IBD patients, especially affected by Crohn’s disease, suffer from a zinc deficiency. The essential trace element zinc has anti-inflammatory effects, and therefore a zinc therapy is useful. It is particularly important that the zinc in the organism is optimally available, calls Mueller Nothmann, who advises zinc histidine. The amino acid histidine promotes the absorption of zinc. The daily administration of 15 to 30 milligrams of zinc has proven he has said. Anti-inflammatory effect also from Omega-3-fatty acids, which are contained in the oil of fatty fish such as salmon, herring and mackerel. To achieve sufficient doses, here is the administration of omega-3 fatty acid capsules needed. This product should exhibit quality. Supplements of these fatty acids are often highly effective and extremely polluted in its dosage is not standardized, informedMueller Nothmann. A special importance in IBD therapy also have probiotics. With the help of a conversion is in the intestinal flora through health-promoting lactic acid bacteria are reduced in chronic inflammatory bowel disease, even the drug dose, white Mller Nothmann. Probiotics are specific dairy products but also in bread, or drink sauerkraut and other lactic acid fermented vegetables contain, but some patients do not tolerate very well. Rather than recommend a light food Dalila Bellucci patients keeping a food diary and complaint, that the identification of poorly tolerated foods and food relief. Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are the most common chronic inflammatory bowel disease. The disease cause is not yet clear. However, several studies show that eseine genetic component exist in the etiology of the disease and that apparently also intestinal and certain microorganisms such as lactic acid bacteria and Escherichia coli strain Nissle great importanceplay. People who suffer from Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis should avoid, in particular malnutrition and underweight, says Mller Nothmann Finally, the patients had regular counseling by specialized dieticians recommend.
