Nutrition for POTS Part 2 Presented by Luke Hassan, APD

Dietary assessment and intervention for Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS)

Get clear on the emerging role of the dietitian in supporting individuals with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS). If your practice includes gastrointestinal, eating disorders or mental health, you’ll recognise these client presentations and want to know more.   

Following an overview of POTS in Part 1, Luke offers insight to the nutrition assessment and intervention. Nutrition impacts symptoms guide the rationale for dietary input, with broad indications for referral:  

  • Low appetite
  • Altered eating routine
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Symptoms interrupting eating
  • Poor hydration
  • Uncomfortable, poorly timed bowel movements
  • Significant food restrictions

Assessment considerations include disordered eating, other co-morbid invisible illnesses, GIT impacts and a significant list of POTS-specific symptoms- all which can impact on appetite, eating relationship, function, preference and individualised needs. POTS-specific nutrition interventions involve salt, fluid and carbohydrates; alongside the more global eating competencies of appetite, routine and adequacy. 

Luke presents two case studies, which span the full spectrum of complexity and resolution, highlighting value of dietetic involvement for these individuals with POTS. And, no doubt, the value of pursuing more research and understanding of this topic.

Nutrition for POTS Part 1 Nutrition intervention is the first presentation in this two-part series.
