What is it?

IBS is a common gastrointestinal disorder that affects 1 in 7 people.  Symptoms include bloating, gas, stomach pain and altered bowel habits (constipation/diarrhoea). It is thought that a number of factors play a role in the development of this condition.

Treatment Options

Dietitians can examine the nutritional adequacy of your diet as well as fibre intake, possible food triggers including FODMAPs, food chemicals, and others. You may then be guided through dietary elimination and rechallenge in order to determine your individual food triggers.

What is it?
Coeliac disease is an autoimmune condition where your body reacts abnormally to gluten (a protein found in wheat, rye, barley and oats). This causes damage to the small intestine, which can lead to a myriad of health problems such as malabsorption of vitamins and minerals and chronic inflammation. Diagnosis of coeliac disease is made by a gastroenterologist.

Treatment Options
Treatment of coeliac disease is lifelong adherence to a strict gluten-free diet. This can be done with guidance from a dietitian. Following a plant-based diet and being diagnosed with coeliac disease can make it tricky to meet your nutrition requirements. Melissa can help to assess your diet and help you to understand and manage a gluten-free diet. This includes label reading and managing your social life with coeliac disease.
She can also assist you with implementing tailored strategies to ensure you are eating the right foods to maintain good health .
