Food sensitive IBS: case studies. Presented by Joan Breakey, APD (retired) and Ashleigh Jones, APD
Following on from their presentation on the step-by-step management of food sensitive IBS Joan and Ashleigh present three clinical cases which demonstrate their management of IBS:
- Amy, a 17 yr-old nursing student who reported bad gut pain, “acid reflux” for years, yellow unformed stools. GI investigations were NAD. Amy was brought in by her mother and not keen on making any dietary changes.
- Louisa, a 67-year-old woman with GORD, vertigo and had a severe reaction to colonoscopy prep. Her restrictive diet of over 20 years is putting her at nutritional risk.
- James, a 45-year-old man who reported diarrhoea with urgency, bloating, headaches, “fuzziness” and concentration issues, vivid dreams and a history of eczema.
They describe their step-by-step management from assessment, planning and collaborating and ultimately figuring out their clients own best diets.
