Disease related dietary management

  1. Peptic ulcers
    • Regular meals and medications such as histamine receptor antagonists that block secretion of hydrochloric acid

  2. IBD (chrone's and idiopathic ulcerative colitis)
    • Elemental diets
    • Formula with the nutrients in their simplest form ready for absorption
    • Pareneteral nutrition when symptoms such as diarrhea and weight loss are prevalent
    • In chronic stage of disease, a regular highly nourishing diet is appropriate
    • Vitamins and iron supplements are often required to correct or prevent anemia
  3. IBS
    Clients manage irritable bowel syndrome by increasing fiber, reducing fat, avoiding large meals, and avoiding lactose or sorbitol-containing foods for susceptible individuals
  4. Short bowl syndrome
    These clients require lifetime feeding with either elemental enteral formulas or pareneteral nutrition
  5. Celiac's disease
    gluten-free diet
  6. Diverticulitis
    • Treated with a moderate- or low-residue diet until the infection subsides
    • Afterwards, a high-fiber diet is generally prescribed for chronic diverticula problems
  7. Cardiovascular
    • - Intended to reduce risk factors for the development of hypertension and coronary artery disease
    • - Balancing caloric intake with exercise to maintain a health body weight
    • - Eating a diet high in fruits, vegetables, and whole grain high fiber foods
    • - Eating fish at least 2 times per week
    • - Limiting food and beverages high in added sugar and salt

    • - Clients can substitute sucrose-containing foods for carbohydrates but they need to avoid excess energy intake
    • - Sugar alcohols and nonnutritive sweeteners are able to be eaten as long as the recommended daily intake levels are followed
    • - Goal of MNT is to have glycemic levels that are normal or as close to normal as safely possible, lipid and lipoprotein profiles that decrease the risk of microvascular and cardiovascular, neurological, and peripheral vascular complications, and blood pressure in the normal or near-normal range
    • - Be aware of signs and symptoms of hypo/hyperglycemia
    • Focuses on maximizing kilocalories and nutrients
    • Diagnose and address each cause of nutritional depletion in the care plan
    • Individually tailored nutrition support progresses in stages from oral, to enteral, and lastly to pareneteral
    • Good hand hygiene and food safety are essential because of the client’s reduced resistance to infection
    • Small, frequent, nutrient-dense meals that limit fatty foods and overly sweet food are easier to tolerate
