Nutritional deficiencies are common in patients suffering from inflammatory bowel disease. Assessment of the nutritional status should be part of the comprehensive care of these patients. Failure to address the nutritional deficiencies can result in poor quality of life and poor outcomes with the medical and surgical therapies. Identification and treatment of specific deficiencies are thus an integral part in the therapy of inflammatory bowel disease. This article addresses the assessment and…

Malnutrition Universal Screening Tool (MUST) predicts disease activity in patients with Crohn’s disease
The MUST predicts disease activity in patients with Crohn’s disease but there is a floor effect and further studies are required to determine if targeted treatment and monitoring of the nutritional state affects clinical outcomes in Patients with CD/IBD.
Diet and Nutrition in the Treatment of Crohn’s Disease
In this chapter, diet recommendations, common nutritional complications, how to identify and treat nutrient deficiencies, and some of the growing evidence for a connection between diet and development of CD are explored.
Enhancing gut function and providing symptom relief in IBD with glutamine supplementation: a literature review
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.


Nutritional status in patients with active inflammatory bowel disease: prevalence of malnutrition and methods for routine nutritional assessment.
The prevalence of undernutrition and severe undernutrition in patients with active IBD were 25.0%-69.7% and 1.3%-31.6%, respectively, while in the control subjects no abnormalities have been detected.
An evaluation of total parenteral nutrition in the management of inflammatory bowel disease
It is concluded that TPN is useful adjunctive therapy for IBD patients requiring bowel rest and nutritional repletion and Dramatic clinical improvement occurs in some patients but is unpredictable.
Iron, anaemia, and inflammatory bowel diseases
It is the experience that virtually all patients with IBD associated anaemia can be successfully treated with a combination of iron sucrose and erythropoietin, which then may positively affect the misled immune response in IBD.
Nutrition in inflammatory bowel disease.
The diet of industrialized nations may contribute to the pathogenesis of both ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn disease (CD). Malnutrition is relatively unusual in UC, but in CD, which often affects
Diagnosis and management of iron deficiency anemia in patients with IBD
An overview of iron homeostasis in health is provided before discussing diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for IDA in patients with IBD.
Vitamin D deficiency in patients with inflammatory bowel disease: association with disease activity and quality of life.
Vitamin D deficiency is common in IBD and is independently associated with lower HRQOL and greater disease activity in CD and there is a need for prospective studies to assess this correlation and examine the impact of vitamin D supplementation on disease course.

The ability of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients to tolerate dairy products and the guidance they receive from physicians and nutritionists on this subject are important considerations in the
Differentiating subtypes (hypoalbuminemic vs marasmic) of protein-calorie malnutrition: incidence and clinical significance in a university hospital setting.
The presence of HAF-PCM increased four-fold the odds of dying, and thedds of developing nosocomial infection and sepsis almost 2.5 times above that seen in its absence, and MF-PCm had no clinical effect of its own on any of the outcome parameters, but instead exerted only an interactive synergistic effect on length of hospitalization and cost of total parenteral nutrition.
Low residue or normal diet in Crohn's disease: a prospective controlled study in Italian patients.
Lifting of dietary restrictions, which results in a more appetizing and nutritious diet, does not cause symptomatic deterioration or precipitate intestinal obstruction in Crohn's disease.
Nationwide prevalence and prognostic significance of clinically diagnosable protein‐calorie malnutrition in hospitalized inflammatory bowel disease patients
Clinically apparent malnutrition is more frequent among IBD admissions than among non‐IBD admissions and its association with greater mortality and resource utilization may reflect more severe underlying disease that can lead to both malnutrition and worse outcomes.
