Gluten Free foods are seem to be in every grocery store and lactose intolerance seems increasingly common. Learn more about food intolerances and the continuum between intolerance, allergy and disease during this webinar.
Outline the incidence (perceived vs real) of food intolerances, myths and misperceptions surrounding intolerances and the spectrum of intolerance to allergy to disease. Gluten sensitivity and lactose intolerance will be outlined as two common intolerances, including symptoms and nutritional management of each. The importance of diagnosis, accurate assessment of the condition and need for regular reassessment to check for improvement/ resolution of the condition will be emphasized, as well as the need for individualization in developing treatment plans. Unintended consequences of elimination diets will be summarized, with resulting nutritional deficiencies and long-term health outcomes. The health professional will be empowered to support clients to manage symptoms while maintaining a nutritionally adequate diet.
Learning Objectives:
•List 2 differences between food intolerance and food allergy, and 2 symptoms of each.
•List 3 possible unintended consequences of dairy- or wheat-avoidance diets.
•Evaluate when clinical testing and re-challenge for intolerance/allergy is indicated.
•Formulate balanced diets for clients/patients from all 5 food groups, and discourage elimination diets, unless contraindicated.
•Describe the scientific basis for food elimination diets.
