Finding the role of food and Nutrition against diseases

From the mildest cold virus to the most devastating cancer, illness increases the need for vitamins and minerals and changes the need to distribute calories between fat, protein, and carbohydrate. Illness also changes the amount and type of dietary fiber needed. Inflammatory bowel disease, in particular, imposes serious nutritional challenges that must be dealt with daily and especially during flare-ups.

Diet and nutrition considerations of patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) are extremely common. Here in we found out that patients often believe that their disease is caused by, and can be cured by diet like Hippocrates said in his famous words. Unfortunately, that seems to be too plain, which is not supported byscientific data. Diet can certainly affect symptoms of these diseases, and may play some role in the underlying inflammatory process, but it appears not to be the major factor in the inflammatory process.

Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis are diseases of the digestive tract sector, it is only natural that you will have many questions about diet and nutrition if you have been diagnosed with one of these disorders. First of all, you may be surprised to learn that there is no evidence that anything in your diet history caused or contributed to these diseases. Once you develop IBD, however, paying special attention to what you eat may go a long way toward reducing symptoms and promoting healing.

The information provided here offers an overall dietary guide for patients and their families. It is based on the results of ongoing studies and the accumulation of knowledge gained in recent years. As this research continues, we will learn even more about the relationship between nutrition and IBD.
