Prescription drugs and surgery are two common medical therapies for Crohn’s disease (CD), an inflammatory bowel disease that affects the GI tract. Unfortunately, certain drugs can cause serious side effects, and surgeries must often be repeated. No diet has been established to alleviate the pain and suffering of CD patients. This is curious given the fact that a higher prevalence of food sensitivities exist in this population of patients, and enteral nutrition is not only the first-line of… Expand

Diet as Therapy for IBD
TLDR
The aim of this chapter is to revise the emerging knowledge, introduce some ideas and new data from recent research, and explain the authors’ point of view. Expand
Existing dietary guidelines for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis
TLDR
Dietary suggestions derived from sources found in this article include nutritional deficiency screening, avoiding foods that worsen symptoms, eating smaller meals at more frequent intervals, drinking adequate fluids, avoiding caffeine and alcohol, taking vitamin/mineral supplementation, eliminating dairy if lactose intolerant and reducing high-fiber foods during flares. Expand
Nutritional management of adults with inflammatory bowel disease: practical lessons from the available evidence
TLDR
Dietary intervention to replace deficiency is essential and may also be used to treat active disease and to reduce symptoms, and there is insufficient evidence to support the routine use of Ω3 fish oil, prebiotics and glutamine in the treatment of active IBD. Expand

TLDR
Malnutrition of short bowel patients is particularly dependent on the function and length of the remaining bowel, therefore the most effective medical therapy should be administered. Expand
Enteral feeding reduces metabolic activity of the intestinal microbiome in Crohn’s disease: an observational study
TLDR
A significant change occurs in the production of microbial metabolites after enteral feeding in both healthy volunteers and patients with CD, which is characteristic of inflammatory bowel disease. Expand

Non-pulmonary allergic diseases and inflammatory bowel disease: a qualitative review.
TLDR
It is clear that non-pulmonary allergic phenomena are connected to IBD in a myriad number of ways and that the discovery of common immunological pathways may usher in an era of vastly improved treatments for patients. Expand
Enhancing gut function and providing symptom relief in IBD with glutamine supplementation: a literature review
TLDR
There is an inverse association between glutamine supplementation and IBD, though not all studies have proven statistical significance and additional research is needed to pinpoint specific guidelines for those seeking therapeutic effects from IBD symptoms with glutamines supplementation. Expand
Influencia de la dieta sobre las citoquinas antiinflamatorias en la enfermedad de Crohn
TLDR
The take-away of functional foods to promote the modification of microbiota profile and /or the synthesis of antiinflammatory cytokines and thus decrease the effects of inflammation has been evaluated, under the assumption that a proper diet could be used as a means to improve the health of this population group. Expand
Inflammatory Bowel Disease – Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis
TLDR
Clinical manifestations revolve around gastrointestinal symptoms; however, IBD can also manifest in other organ systems, including the liver, joints, eyes, and skin. Expand

Dietary therapy in gastrointestinal disease.
TLDR
There is a high potential for malnutrition in Crohn's disease during active and remittent phases, and Elemental enteral formulas or TPN are used during the active phase to ensure optimal nutritional status and bowel rest. Expand

TLDR
The clinical picture of patients with Crohn’s disease is that of weight loss, abdominal pain, diarrhoea and stunted growth in children, and a lot of emphasis is placed on symptomatic and supportive treatment. Expand
Efficacy of nutritional therapy for active Crohn's disease.
TLDR
Results suggest that, for active Crohn's disease, nutritional therapy with ED should be enthusiastically administered, and in patients in whom the presence of complications necessitates therapy for 3 months or more, this point be considered to indicate a possible surgical approach. Expand

TLDR
In 25 patients with Crohn's disease a reduction in inflammatory activity and improvement of nutritional status was obtained with parenteral nutrition, Nevertheless, longer follow up periods revealed no additional benefit in comparison with conventional therapies. Expand

TLDR
Nutritional supplementation is safe, well tolerated and effective in the long-term management of patients with quiescent Crohn's disease. Expand
Enteral nutrition in adult Crohn's disease: present status and perspectives.
TLDR
Enteral nutrition remains of interest in patients presenting concomitant malnutrition, or in those intolerant or who failed to other therapeutics, and future research could lead to enteral formula's improvement, with better tolerance and acceptability, as well as increased efficacy. Expand
Nutritional status and nutritional therapy in inflammatory bowel diseases.
TLDR
The available evidence suggests that supplementary EN may be effective also for maintenance of remission in CD, and EN supplementation could be considered as an alternative or as an adjunct to maintenance drug therapy in CD. Expand
Long‐term effects of elemental and exclusion diets for Crohn's disease
TLDR
Seven patients with established Crohn's disease who attained clinical remission after four weeks of enteral feeding were followed prospectively for up to 36 months, and eight patients obtained a long‐term remission, mean 23 months (range 12–36 months), without any medication. Expand
Patients' diets and preferences in a pediatric population with inflammatory bowel disease.
TLDR
Many children with inflammatory bowel disease have altered their diets to manage their disease and have attributed symptomatic relief to these diets, with the most commonly alleviated symptoms being abdominal pain, diarrhea and flatulence. Expand
