Mar 2020 A Case-Based Approach to New Directions in Dietary Therapy of Crohn's Disease: Food for Thought CDED Levine A et al This case-based narrative review will discuss the Crohn's disease exclusion diet (CDED) as monotherapy, combination therapy with drugs, as a rescue therapy in refractory patients and for de-escalation from medical therapy. Nutrients . 2020 Mar 24;12(3):880. doi: 10.3390/nu12030880.
Apr 2019 A Review of Dietary Therapy for IBD and a Vision for the Future EEN, SCD, IBD-AID, CDED, SVD, CD-TREAT Green N et al Dietary interventions, with known ability to modulate the intestinal microbiome, are a unique opportunity to improve outcomes in IBD. Dietary intervention trials are challenging, and capturing both broad dietary patterns as well as exposure to individual food compounds is important. With increasing patient interest and preliminary research in dietary therapy indicating efficacy, it is imperative to further advance the science of utilizing diet in IBD, as well as to support patients by proactively addressing diet within their care plan. Nutrients , 11 (5) 2019 Apr 26
Apr 2019 An Overview of the Role of Exclusive Enteral Nutrition for Complicated Crohn's Disease EEN Adamji M and Day AS Published literature focusing upon the use of nutritional therapy as part of medical therapy in the management of complicated CD were identified and reviewed. Although there continue to be various interventions utilized for complicated CD, the currently available literature demonstrates that nutritional therapies, especially EEN, have important roles in the management of these complex scenarios. Intest Res. 2019 Apr; 17(2): 171–176.
Oct 2014 Consensus Guidelines of ECCO/ESPGHAN on the Medical Management of Pediatric Crohn's Disease EEN Ruemmele FM et al The aim was to base on a thorough review of existing evidence a state of the art guidance on the medical treatment and long term management of children and adolescents with CD, with individualized treatment algorithms based on a benefit-risk analysis according to different clinical scenarios. In children and adolescents who did not have finished their growth, exclusive enteral nutrition (EEN) is the induction therapy of first choice due to its excellent safety profile, preferable over corticosteroids, which are equipotential to induce remission. J Crohns Colitis , 8 (10), 1179-207 Oct 2014
Aug 2015 Diet and Inflammatory Bowel Disease SCD, IBD-AID Knight-Sepulveda K et al The role of diet has become very important in the prevention and treatment of IBD. Although there is a general lack of rigorous scientific evidence that demonstrates which diet is best for certain patients, several diets-such as the low-fermentable oligosaccharide, disaccharide, monosaccharide, and polyol diet; the specific carbohydrate diet; the anti-inflammatory diet; and the Paleolithic diet-have become popular. This article discusses the diets commonly recommended to IBD patients and reviews the supporting data. Gastroenterol Hepatol (N Y). 2015 Aug;11(8):511-20.
Dec 2017 Diet as a Therapeutic Option for Adult Inflammatory Bowel Disease SCD, EEN Kakodkar S and Mutlu EA The literature on diet and IBD is reviewed with a particular focus on EEN, SCD, and low FODMAP diets. Lessons learned from the existing observations and strengths and shortcomings of existing data are presented. Gastroenterol Clin North Am. 2017 Dec;46(4):745-767. doi: 10.1016/j.gtc.2017.08.016
Feb 2017 Diet as a Trigger or Therapy for Inflammatory Bowel Diseases SCD Lewis JD and Abreu MT We discuss current knowledge about popular diets, including the specific carbohydrate diet and diet low in fermentable oligo-, di-, and monosaccharides and polyols. We present findings from clinical and basic science studies to help gastroenterologists navigate diet as it relates to the management of IBD. Gastroenterology. 2017 Feb;152(2):398-414.e6. doi: 10.1053/j.gastro.2016.10.019. Epub 2016 Oct 25.
Mar 2021 Diet in Treatment of Inflammatory Bowel Diseases EEN, PEN, SCD, IBD-AID, AIP, CDED, SVD, CD-TREAT Sasson AN et al We review findings from studies of the effects of dietary patterns, single micronutrients, and food additives in inducing and maintaining remission in patients with IBD. We discuss future directions for research and propose a framework for studies of dietary interventions in the treatment of IBD. Clin Gastroenterol Hepatol . 2021 Mar;19(3):425-435.e3. doi: 10.1016/j.cgh.2019.11.054. Epub 2019 Dec 5.
Dec 2019 Diet in Treatment of Inflammatory Bowel Diseases EEN, PEN, SCD, IBD-AID, AIP, CDED, CD-TREAT, SVD Sasson AN We review findings from studies of the effects of dietary patterns, single micronutrients, and food additives in inducing and maintaining remission in patients with IBD. We discuss future directions for research and propose a framework for studies of dietary interventions in the treatment of IBD. Clin Gastroenterol Hepatol . 2019 Dec 5;S1542-3565(19)31394-1.
May 2015 Diet in the Pathogenesis and Treatment of Inflammatory Bowel Diseases EEN, CDED, SCD Lee D et al We review the roles of diet in the etiology and management of IBD, based on plausible mechanisms and clinical evidence. Researchers have learned much about the effects of diet on the mucosal immune system, epithelial function, and the intestinal microbiome; these findings could have significant practical implications. Controlled studies of patients receiving enteral nutrition and observations made from patients on exclusion diets have shown that components of whole foods can have deleterious effects for patients with IBD. Additionally, studies in animal models suggested that certain nutrients can reduce intestinal inflammation. Gastroenterology , 148 (6), 1087-106 May 2015
Aug 2017 Diet, Gut Microbiome and Epigenetics: Emerging Links with Inflammatory Bowel Diseases and Prospects for Management and Prevention SCD, MED Aleksandrova K et al Other nutritional interventions or specific diets including the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD), the low fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides, and polyol (FODMAP) diet and, most recently, the Mediterranean diet have shown strong anti-inflammatory properties and show promise for improving disease symptoms. More work is required to evaluate the role of individual food compounds and complex nutritional interventions with the potential to decrease inflammation as a means of prevention and management of IBD. Nutrients. 2017 Aug 30;9(9). pii: E962. doi: 10.3390/nu9090962
Nov 2019 Dietary Management of Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease EEN, SCD, IBD-AID, CDED Kaenkumchorn T and Kesavan A In particular, nutritional therapies for IBD have garnered significant interest due to their limited side effect profile, bowel-sparing nature, and naturalistic approach. This review will examine the role of diet in the pathogenesis and malnutrition in IBD, and will discuss dietary approaches to management of IBD, including exclusive enteral nutrition, specific carbohydrate diet, anti-inflammatory diet, and food supplements (specifically curcumin and long-chain n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids). J Med Food. 2019 Nov;22(11):1092-1099. doi: 10.1089/jmf.2019.0063. Epub 2019 Jul 18.
