Dietitian for IBD in
Kingston, PA and Online

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) can be a painful and debilitating condition that can impact the way you enjoy food and everyday life.

Fortunately, help is available when you work with a dietitian for IBD.

IBD refers to two separate chronic diseases - Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Both conditions involve inflammation within the digestive tract. While IBD can’t be cured, a dietitian can help you manage your symptoms by recommending dietary changes that reduce painful flare-ups.

The Challenges of IBD

If your doctor has diagnosed you with either form of inflammatory bowel disease, you may feel nervous and confused about what you’ve learned about the condition. Here at Catalyst, we strive to empower our patients by educating them, so here’s what you need to know about each type of IBD.

​Ulcerative Colitis

Ulcerative colitis is the most prevalent form of IBD in the United States. Of the approximately 2.3 million Americans with IBD, about 1.2 million have ulcerative colitis, according to the Gastroenterology journal. Most Americans are diagnosed between the ages of 15 to 30 and between 50 and 70.

We can’t point to any direct causes of ulcerative colitis. Instead, it’s believed to result from genetics or as an autoimmune disease, an improper reaction of your immune system.

If you have ulcerative colitis, you may experience the following symptoms:

  • abdominal cramping and pain

  • diarrhea

  • bloody stools

  • feelings of incomplete defecation

  • weight loss

  • fatigue

  • fever

Crohn’s Disease

A little more than one million Americans are estimated to have Crohn’s disease. Similarly to ulcerative colitis, most people are diagnosed between ages 15 and 35.

For the most part, Crohn’s disease presents the same symptoms as ulcerative colitis:

  • abdominal cramps and pain

  • diarrhea

  • bloody stools

  • sudden need to move bowels

  • feelings of incomplete defecation

  • weight loss

  • fatigue

  • constipation

The main difference between Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis is that inflammation from Crohn’s can occur anywhere in the digestive tract, while ulcerative colitis inflammation is limited to the large intestine.

Either type of IBD can cause pain, discomfort, anxiety, and stress in your daily life. Although IBD can’t be cured, you can manage your symptoms with targeted nutrition help from a registered dietitian.

How a Dietitian Can Help with IBD

Here at Catalyst Nutrition and Training, many of our patients are relieved to learn they can use their diet to manage IBD symptoms. In some people, certain foods and ingredients trigger flare-ups of ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. These might include:

  • fruits

  • vegetables

  • sugar

  • fats

  • nuts

  • seeds

  • alcohol

  • caffeine

  • dairy products

Until you see a dietitian, you may not even realize that some foods in your diet aggravate your symptoms. Through our nutrition counseling program, we help you optimize your diet to avoid food triggers while still taking in the nutrients you need to be healthy. It’s a careful balancing act, and one you should only undertake with proper medical supervision.
