Gastrointestinal Issues

At the Nutrition Specialists, we have the in-house knowledge, expertise and experience to help our patients identify and manage a range of Gastrointestinal Issues.

Causes of Poor digestion

There are many parts and processes involved in digestion. Given the complex nature of digestion it is no surprise that a large percentage of the population experience poor digestion on a regular basis.

Gastrointestinal (GI) issues occur when one or more parts of the GI tract work poorly and may result in  

  • Nausea
  • Reflux
  • Early fullness
  • Altered intestinal transit time
    • Diarrhoea/constipation
  • Bloating
  • Excess passage of wind, pain and discomfort.

There may be an underlying disorder which can be managed through focussing on dietary recommendations specific to the condition i.e. Coeliac Disease nutrition, Diverticulitis nutrition, Chrohn’s disease nutrition, gastritis nutrition or Ulcerative Colitis nutrition.

It may be that the symptoms are not explained by any of these disorders and Irritable Bowel Syndrome is diagnosed.

Improving your digestive comfort and quality of life will occur once diagnosis is confirmed and careful investigation of your individual gut response to dietary food components is determined.

Our Dietitians specialise in nutrition and tailored diets associated but not limited to;

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome diet (IBS diet)
  • Gastrointestinal Reflux Disease diet (GORD)
  • Gastritis diet
  • Chron’s Disease diet
  • Ulcerative Colitis diet
  • Diverticulitis diet
  • Coeliac Disease diet

Our Dietitians will provide you with a comprehensive assessment and targeted dietary plan suited to your preferences and specific gut condition to gain control of your symptoms and get back to some of the activities you enjoy.

If you’ve been diagnosed with any of the above, or have concerns about your gastrointestinal health make an appointment with our gut specialist Dietitians⁠ at The Nutrition Specialists.
