Medical Nutrition Intervention For Common GI Disorders
0:00 0:00

Everyone is familiar with the quote "you are what you eat." When it comes to the digestive tract and digestive issues, this quote cannot be overstated. When a digestive disorder is diagnosed, nutrition counseling can help patients achieve balance between symptom management and continued quality of life. This webinar will examine the most common digestive disorders and evidence-based nutrition guidelines, advice you can offer patients and suggested resources for health care practitioners.
