Managing Common GI Disorders in Clients with Eating Disorders
The majority of people with eating disorders will experience gastrointestinal (GI) discomfort. This webinar will explore the connection between eating disorders and the most common gastrointestinal disorders among eating disorder clients, specifically IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) and gastroparesis. Information on how to recognize and treat these conditions from a nutrition standpoint will be covered. Dietary interventions, as well as non-diet tools, supplements, and behavior modifications, will be explained so that dietitians can support their clients in improving their symptoms and quality of life without triggering disordered eating behaviors.
Following this presentation, participants will be able to:
- Understand the connection between GI conditions and eating disorders
- Recognize the most common GI conditions that their clients with ED will present
- Begin to apply dietary interventions and non-dietary tools to improve symptoms of GI issues
