Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) have different health implications and entail different approaches for patient care. Clinicians are often challenged in determining which malady is affecting a patient because symptoms can be the same for both. Freston will host two sessions that analyze the ingredients of how nutrition impacts each.
Kate Scarlata, a dietitian and author, will moderate a session on IBS reviewing functional foods, dietary supplements, evidenced-based therapies, and educational tools for clinicians. Ashwin Ananthakrishnan, MBBS, MPH, Massachusetts General Hospital, will moderate a session examining which foods have inflammatory effects on IBD and which diets may have mitigating effects.

Additional 2019 Freston sessions will examine:
- How nutrient-gene interactions may alter gastrointestinal conditions.
- How to recognize and differentiate food-induced GI disorders.
- Manage nutritional challenges for patients with surgically altered digestive tracts.
- Diagnostic and management approaches for treating Celiac and other wheat-related disorders.
- Implementing nutrition management therapies.
