Decoding the Relationship Between Diet, the Gut Microbiome, and Chronic Disease
November 3, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm
Join Digestive Health Expert and Dietitian, Kate Scarlata RDN, LDN, and Cindy Carroll, MS, RD, RN, IFNCP for a continuing education workshop: “Decoding the Relationship Between Diet, the Gut Microbiome, and Chronic Disease”
For Who? RDNs, RNs, and other health professionals interested in the intersection of digestive health and chronic disease. Prior approved for 6 CEU for RDNs and 6 contact hours for RNs.
1. Describe the relationship between gut permeability, inflammation and chronic disease
2. Describe endotoxemia and its link to insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, and metabolic syndrome
3. Describe how food such as FODMAPs, gluten and food chemicals can elicit gastrointestinal symptoms and changes to the gut microbiome
The relationship between the gut microbiome and health status is an emerging area of research. As nutrition plays a key role on shaping the gut microbiome, dietitians and nurses, should be well versed in the scientific evidence on how nutritional modulataion can be curative, or reduce symptom and disease burden. Nutritional therapies such as the low FODMAP diet, gluten free and reduction in food chemicals, as well as use of nutriceuticals and supplements will be reviewed for conditions such as diabetes, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, NASH, Inflammatory Bowel Disease and Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
